Lumenpulse Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of high performance, architectural LED-based lighting solutions for commercial, institutional, and urban environments, today announced that it won a prestigious Red Dot Award for its high-performance projector, the Lumenbeam LBX.
The competition is hotly contested by manufacturers from all fields of industrial design including makers of cars, computers and furniture. Lumenpulse’s Lumenbeam LBX was selected by a 30-member expert jury after evaluating 4,515 designs – a record-number of submissions to the red dot competition. The red dot design award dates back to 1955 and is now one of the world’s largest and most distinguished design competitions.
The Lumenbeam LBX is a high performance architectural lighting projector, which uses energy-efficient, high-power LEDs for the illumination of large spaces and structures. Half the size and weight of existing solutions, the fixture is unique for its slim form factor and 120,000-hour lumen maintenance (L70). The powerful output and extended lifetime is the result of an innovative thermal design that allows cool air to flow through the system, while a chimney effect uses natural convection to rapidly eject hot air.
The Lumenbeam LBX is part of a broad family of Lumenbeam luminaires designed to solve multiple lighting challenges with a single consistently designed form factor, and is particularly effective for large-scale projects. It is available with a choice of 4 different optics and various mounting options, which gives greater scope to specifiers, lighting designers and architects.
“We founded Lumenpulse because we felt there is strong demand for a design-centric approach to LED fixtures – that design could be a defining and compelling feature in an industry that has seen little design innovation since Edison, and that design excellence combined with technology leadership make a winning formula,” said François-Xavier Souvay, Founder, President and CEO of Lumenpulse. “Winning the coveted red dot award is strong validation of Lumenpulse’s expertise and our ability to deliver value to the market.”
“The experts thoroughly examined, tested and evaluated each individual entry applying the highest standards. With their performances, the laureates did not only demonstrate an extraordinary design quality but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions. At this high level, the winners are able to increase their potential for success on the market considerably by purposefully using our design prize,” said Dr. Peter Zec, CEO of the red dot design award,
Previously the Lumenbeam LBX won an LFI INNOVATION AWARD, awarded at LIGHTFAIR 2011. The Lumenbeam LBX RGB has been deployed to light the roof of Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium.
The red dot design award
The red dot design award, whose origins reach back to the 1950s, is carried out in three disciplines: the “red dot award: product design”, the “red dot award: communication design” and the “red dot award: design concept.” The award – the red dot – has established itself internationally as one of the most appreciated quality seals for outstanding designs.
