Montreal, June 1, 2023 – Eureka (www.eurekalighting.com), an established leader in decorative lighting solutions, is pleased to announce its Tangram-Trace luminaire was awarded the Red Dot: Best of the Best distinction in the 2023 Product Design competition. Tangram-Cut, Tangram-Essential, Tangram-Tact, and Arena luminaires also received 2023 Red Dot Awards for Product Design.
While Eureka has been honored with previous Red Dot Awards, this is the first time the company has received the pinnacle Red Dot: Best of the Best. It is reserved for ground-breaking design, and only the best products in a category are awarded.
Dating back to 1955, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions. The Red Dot Label has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after marks of quality for good design. Red Dot invited a jury of 43 international experts from different specialist areas to test, discuss, and assess each product individually, awarding aesthetically appealing, functional, smart, or innovative products.
The Tangram family is defined by bold four-inch-wide straps, which can be configured into various geometries using spacers that pull in or push out the straps to create striking shapes. A flat power cable is fully concealed inside each strap.
Tangram-Trace, the original luminaire in the innovative Tangram family, uses a prismatic lens to create a dramatic aesthetic while providing high-quality diffused linear illumination. Luminaires, in 2', 4', and 6' lengths, flow seamlessly into the straps from which they are suspended. The straps can be configured into 12 pre-set shapes, or designers can work with the Eureka team to create other configurations.
Precision machining from a solid glass block gives the Tangram-Cut pendant its striking, jewel-like feel. Internal frosting and a distinctive concave bottom help to diffuse light from the 8-inch diameter luminaire. The unique aesthetic is suited to luxurious environments such as high-end hospitality settings.
Tangram-Essential features a honeycomb or prismatic lens. The 8-inch cylinder provides excellent visual impact at the base of the bold four-inch-wide straps, which can be configured and suspended in multiple ways. Tangram-Essential brings geometric interest to lobbies and informal lounges or meeting areas.
Warm, soft curves define Tangram-Tact. A COB light source, deeply recessed within the 12-inch diameter housing, reduces glare and increases user comfort. Precision light control can highlight specific areas such as seating areas, pathways, or corridors.
Tangram-Cut, Tangram-Essential, and Tangram-Tact are each available as a surface or pendant mounting type.
Arena is a geometric pendant in circular, square, rectangle, or straight-line renditions. Its innovative magnetic structure lets users snap on or off light sources at will. No tools or electricians are required to add, remove, or arrange light sources, so designers and users can move, separate, cluster, flip up or down, pivot, or aim each light source to meet a space's functional and aesthetic needs. An acoustic accessory is also available for areas where noise is a concern.
All five Eureka luminaires will be featured in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, the Red Dot Design Yearbook, and through an online presentation. They will also be celebrated during Red Dot Design Week in June.
