After the ADI Design Index, now the Premio Innovazione for Palco Low Voltage
The ADI Design Index exhibition was inaugurated in the Roman Aquarium of Piazza Manfredo Fanti in Rome on the 26th
of October. On this occasion, the Premio Innovazione (Innovation Prize) ADI Design Index 2017
was awarded to iGuzzini and the Spanish lighting design studio artec3. The company based in Recanati and the studio founded and led by Maurici Ginés have collaborated on the design of the innovative projector Palco Low Voltage.
Since 2008, ADI – the Italian Association for Industrial Design – selects every year three of the best Italian designers and manufacturers that distinguish themselves in the material, process and technology innovation in regards with the respect for the environment and the public and social value. ADI awarded this prize to iGuzzini and artec3 for “the micro-sized version of Palco Low Voltage spotlights which is the result of a research activity that combines the technological innovation of last-generation LEDs with the study of materials, optics, and applications, in order to get the most out of each millimetre, eliminating superfluous space while maintaining the high performance of the product range”. As winner of the Premio Innovazione ADI Design Index 2017, another prize will be awarded to iGuzzini - the Premio dei Premi (Prize of the Prizes), design category- an acknowledgement given by the Italian Government that awards the design innovation capability, a characteristic able to boost the economic, scientific and cultural development of the country.
Besides Palco Low Voltage
, the minimal design of Laser Blade XS
“The Blade” was shortlisted in the ADI Design Index 2017.
This wall-washer, with its surgical precision in the diffusion of the light, its super compact dimensions and its extreme visual comfort is an invisible light source particularly suited for applications in retail and Hospitality&Living. This high-performance product is also equipped with the Tunable White technology that allows adjusting the colour temperature in order to improve psychophysical wellbeing through a dynamic light with a rich spectrum similar to daylight.
