Philips Wins Red Dot Design Award
"As always, our jury cast a very careful eye over the products submitted. Design quality has asserted itself clearly in the judging process, with genuine and new creative solutions also being rewarded. Both of these criteria are not just yardsticks for good design, but also for the potential for success on the market. This potential is increased several times over by the targeted use of our renowned design award," said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator of the Red Dot award.
In addition to innovative design and the integration of LEDs and MesoOptics technology, Jump offers state-of-the-art sustainable technologies such as Response, an integrated daylight harvesting sensor that can further help reduce energy use by 30-35 percent. Moreover, Jump offers Airwave technology, which is comprised of integrated wireless and battery-less controls. By using organic sources of solar and kinetic energy, Airwave provides wireless individual personal control, daylight harvesting, occupancy sensing and full range dimming for private offices, open plan areas, classrooms and other spaces where the ability to control energy and lighting are essential. When combined, these technologies not only help designers and architects achieve LEED points, they ensure that energy is used in a sustainable, responsible way, while delivering the right levels of light.
"Jump is a smart fixture that is indicative of Philips' leading-edge professional lighting solutions, which extend far beyond just offering LED as a light source, combining design, sustainability and controls," said Tim Berman, General Manager, Philips Ledalite. "Integration with other leading-edge technologies, including building management systems, ensure that Jump can easily help a building meet today's energy-efficiency requirements, while giving owners the security of knowing their investment is future-proof and can be extended as needed."
The Red Dot design award dates back to 1955 and is now the world's largest and most distinguished design competition. The Red Dot design award jury of highly respected experts has awarded Jump the "Red Dot" seal of quality for high design quality and innovation. With more than 4,000 submissions from 60 countries, the competition distinguishes truly creative achievements and thus pays tribute to the high potential creative talents, designers and design companies around the world. With this internationally coveted award, Philips Ledalite now joins the ranks of the design elite and previous award winners such as Apple, BMW, Porsche and Herman Miller.
