A-Light wins Two Red Dot Awards
Oceanside, CA, April 12, 2021 – A-Light (www.alights.com), an established best-in-class manufacturer of specification grade interior lighting solutions, is pleased to announce that its Align and Aloft lighting systems have received 2021 Red Dot Awards for Product Design.
Dating back to 1955, Red Dot Awards is one of the world’s largest and most distinguished design competitions, with more than 18,000 entries. The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. The jury comprises over 50 international experts, who convene once a year to test, discuss and evaluate each entry individually. Jurors scrutinize the products in a process that spans several days and are guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity. Whether aesthetically pleasing, functional, smart, or innovative, the award-winning products all share one thing in common: outstanding design quality.
Align is a magnetic, module-based architectural lighting system that can be recessed, surface mounted or suspended. These mounting types can be interchanged for complex lighting designs across ceilings, walls, and around corners. Multiple magnetic modules and mounting options, combined with tool-free installation and removal capabilities, provide the opportunity to create endless mix and match, direct and indirect configurations. Align’s sleek, clean design seamlessly integrates into any architecture.
Aloft is a low-profile, tubular luminaire system developed to allow designers to create unique lighting environments. By manipulating a horizontal rotation of 200°, Aloft can be shaped in countless ways and locked in place to create the desired design. An easily re-configurable endcap and 360° rotation joiner structure enables full control of the light's direction. Installation and onsite adjustments are simplified with an innovative plug-and-play connection system that clicks sections together with ease.
Both luminaires will be presented in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, an online presentation, and the Red Dot Design Yearbook.
