Fluxwerx’ Fold Wins iF Design Award 2017Fluxwerx, a world leader of high-performance, LED luminaires for commercial and institutional spaces, is a winner of this year’s world-renowned iF Design Award for Fold, a suspended LED luminaire that delivers low brightness, flexible general lighting through a hollow luminous aperture.

Fluxwerx was awarded the prize by a 58-member jury, made up of independent design and engineering experts from around the world. The competition was intense for this international designation recognizing product design excellence, with over 5,500 products entries submitted from 59 countries.

The Fold luminaire features proprietary anidolic extraction optics with low brightness and high-performance continuous lenses that mix and disperse light, eliminating any visible images of the LED point source and resulting in a complete absence of glare. Fold’s long life mid-flux LED system is optically and thermally designed and TMZI verified to maintain 90% of initial lumen output for more than 60,000 operating hours (L90 > 60,000 h). The light intensity is dimmable, with the pendant luminaire providing both direct and indirect lighting in multiple correlated color temperatures (3000K, 3500K or 4000K) with SDCM < 2 and CRI +80.

“We’re very honoured and proud to have been awarded the 2017 iF Design Award,” says Tim Berman, President of Fluxwerx. “It is our goal to continuously innovate and push limits to deliver luminaires that merge the very best in LED performance, industrial design and sustainability. Fold does exactly that — it is a perfect combination of modern form, advanced technology, creative engineering, and an obsessive attention to detail. This prestigious award is a validation of our efforts, elevating Fluxwerx to yet another level of international recognition and competitiveness.”

The iF design award night will take place on 10 March 2017 at BMW Welt in Munich.
