Fluxwerx, a Lumenpulse Group brand and a world leader of high performance, LED luminaires for commercial and institutional spaces, is the winner of this year's world-renowned iF DESIGN AWARD. The winning product - Fold, an innovative suspended LED luminaire that delivers low brightness, flexible general lighting through a hollow luminous aperture - was awarded the prize by a 58-member jury, made up of independent design and engineering experts from around the world. The competition was intense for this highly sought-after international designation that recognizes product design excellence, with over 5,500 products entries submitted from 59 countries, all challenging to receive the prestigious seal of quality.
"We're very honored and proud to have been awarded the 2017 iF Design Award," said Tim Berman, President of Fluxwerx. "It is our goal to continuously innovate and push limits to deliver luminaires that merge the very best in LED performance, industrial design and sustainability. Fold does exactly that - it is a perfect combination of modern form, advanced technology, creative engineering and an obsessive attention to detail. This prestigious award is a validation of our efforts, elevating Fluxwerx to yet another level of international recognition and competitiveness."
The Fold linear LED pendant luminaire, with its unique void aperture, delivers unparalleled longitudinal transparency right through the fixture. The luminaire features proprietary anidolic extraction optics with low brightness and high-performance continuous lenses that mix and disperse light, eliminating any visible images of the LED point source, resulting in a complete absence of glare. Combining minimalist aesthetic and organic form, Fold's finely detailed architecture makes it a perfect fit for contemporary-styled commercial applications. The luminaire is available with several versions of sculptural aluminum endcap options and numerous exterior finishes including clear anodized aluminum and standard or custom RAL powdercoat paint choices. Providing dimmable direct and indirect lighting, Fold can be installed as a stand-alone luminaire or connected to create continuous runs without limitations.
"The iF design competition is clearly attracting some of the best companies and designers around the world. The arduous task of the judges is to identify the best products so that we can celebrate and revere them, and give consumers and retailers a sense of confidence," notes Paul Flowers, Chief Design Officer, LIXIL Water Technology Group, UK. "When a product receives an iF award, it really stands for a clear intention, quality of execution, quality materials, and a unique quality of design thinking."
