Concord Equinox LED from Sylvania Lighting wins Red Dot Design Award 2023

May 10, 2023

Sylvania Lighting has been awarded with the Red Dot Design Award 2023 in the Lighting Design category for its innovative Concord Equinox LED downlight. The product’s unique design redefines the current standards for LED downlights, with no central visible light source, allowing the user to experience the effect and not the impact of the luminaire. The Concord Equinox brings innovation, flexibility, and style together, and offers any environment a highly modern and stylish appearance due to its halo effect. The Red Dot Design Award is one of the most sought-after design competitions in the world with more than 20,000 entries per year. In this year’s edition, the Red Dot jury comprised of 43 experts from 20 countries.

“We are proud that Sylvania Lighting, with its Concord Equinox has received the Red Dot Design Award 2023. This unique luminaire is a true innovation in the downlight segment and brings immense possibilities to architects and interior designers alike. This is the sixth time that Sylvania Lighting has won a Red Dot Award, which is a great honor and recognition for all our designers and manufacturing community in the United Kingdom. We anticipate the design community to embrace this product across Europe. It confirms our commitment to invest in European research and development and to continue bringing innovation to the global lighting market,”

Simon Reed, Global Vice President & CEO (EMEA) for Sylvania Lighting

Concord Equinox – a New Design Benchmark

Concord Equinox has been developed, using the latest optical technology. The product features an adjustable optical system which allows light to be emitted not only downwards but also upwards, creating a beautiful halo effect on the ceiling. This direct and indirect architectural lighting creates a unique atmosphere and enhances space.

Concord Equinox has been developed in partnership with QuarkStarTM, who provided the optical technology for this project. QuarkStar’sTM system of light refraction allows, for the first time, an indirect component to be integrated into a downlight without supplementary optics. This results in a sleek, discreet, and conceptual design that also produces a tailored distribution with a UGR (Unified Glare Rating) of less than 19, putting Equinox in the highest quality classification in European interior lighting standards.

“Concord Equinox has been developed in collaboration between our R&D, product, marketing, and production teams. The result is a revolutionary luminaire which brings cutting-edge innovation to the traditional downlight segment. The game-changing design and exceptional technology create a unique light rendition that generates emotion,”

Agnieszka Paprocka, Senior Product Line Manager EMEA at Sylvania Lighting
