The winners of the LIT Lighting Design Awards 2019 have been named. Open to submissions from all around the world, the LIT Awards celebrate creativity and innovation in the fields of lighting products and application.
As a result, there are many categories (and many winners) in two main classes: for Lighting Designer of the Year there are 25 categories, for Lighting Product Design of the Year there are 20 categories.
Overall Designer of the Year was Fang Fang, the winner in the Interior Architectural Illumination category, for his work on Alvaro Siza’s Museum of International Design in Hangzhou, eastern China (top).
Says Fang: “Our focus is on how to fully respect the characteristics of the building and reject all artificial forms of interference. Focus on the linear and indirect light strips for direct lighting and the light slots for indirect lighting, as well as the intelligent control of lighting”.
Overall winner in product design was A-Light’s WGD9, a wall grazing luminaire with a high-efficiency reflector and custom designed diffuser that results in a powerful and uniform effect (below).
Designed for precision grazing in mind, the WGD9 optics provide an extremely narrow 7° beam that is carefully engineered to highlight surface textures with the minimum of hotspots and dead zones. WGD9 has an industry-leading wall uniformity rating of 8:1, delivers up to 1091 lm/ft, and boasts an efficacy of 112 lm/W.
