Eureka wins Red Dot award for its Verner LED lighting fixture
Eureka, a decorative lighting solutions provider from The Luminaires Group (TLG), has won a Red Dot Award for its Verner LED lighting fixture. It is the fifth year running that a Eureka product has been recognised with this award.
The Verner fixture stood out amongst more than 5,500 product entries from 55 countries. Verner was selected for outstanding design quality by a jury comprising experts from different disciplines who assessed products on criteria such as level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, longevity and ergonomics. The Red Dot design award dates back to 1955, and is one of the world’s largest and most distinguished design competitions.
“We are delighted to be recognised with another Red Dot award,” said Patrick Foley, president at Eureka. “Our track record in this competition validates our commitment to innovation, and we will continue to strive towards design excellence.”
A new take on a modern yet timeless shape with clean lines and simplicity, Verner’s contemporary look is completed with a classic spherical diffuser. The cone-like shade ensures that light is directed downwards and is, therefore, suited to applications where designers want to avoid indirect light illuminating the ceiling. Verner is designed for applications where a high output of downlight is required as much as a simple decorative element.
“I would like to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their wonderful success. The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The laureates are thus setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot, in reference to the winners.
Previous Red Dot winning products from Eureka include the Plate Out (2015) and Aperture (2016), Prince (2017), and Flynn (2018).
