Fluxwerx Fold Luminaire Wins LEDs Magazine 2017 Sapphire Award
Architectural suspended LED luminaire, featuring a unique transparent lens, selected as winner in Indoor Troffer, Linear, and Recessed SSL Luminaire Design category
Fluxwerx, a Lumenpulse Group brand and a world leader of high-performance, LED luminaires for commercial and institutional spaces, has won LEDs Magazine 2017 Sapphire Award in the Indoor Troffer, Linear, and Recessed SSL Luminaire Design category for its Fold luminaire. This awards program is singular in the industry for its recognition of valuable contributions across the entire LED and lighting supply chain, from components and test tools to controls and lighting products.
As described in last year's Sapphire Awards roundup, "Linear illumination is abundant in many commercial and municipal spaces. Some of the newest LED-based lighting products almost defy definition or characterization in familiar terms, and that statement certainly holds true for the Fold luminaire," said Maury Wright, Editor-in-Chief of LEDs Magazine.
Fold is a linear pendant luminaire with minimalist, sculptural form and a unique void aperture that creates longitudinal transparency through the fixture without horizontal lenses. Featuring third generation anidolic extraction optics with low brightness and superior efficacy, the luminaire's vertically oriented optics result in a complete absence of glare. Its high-performance, indirect/direct batwing distributions are separately dimmable and deliver efficacy up to 119 LPW with multiple CCTs, chromatic accuracy, <2 SDCM and extraordinary lumen maintenance of L70 @ +200,000h.
"The Sapphire Awards program highlights the innovations and advancements in the LED industry. It is an honor to receive an award of this merit," said Tim Berman, President of Fluxwerx. "We are deeply passionate about designing and developing luminaires that deliver an affordable and intelligent combination of contemporary design and practical functionality. Fold's precision optics and quality architectural materials do just that, delivering design and visual comfort with superior lighting and energy performance that was never possible with legacy sources."
Sixty companies working across the LED and solid-state lighting sectors nominated over 100 products to be considered for the third annual Sapphire Awards.
