The title “Lamp of the year” is a kind of public award and especially important for the winners. The three best placed lamps are awarded in Spring /Summer in the Kaiserhais Arnsberg, Germany.

The three first placed of 2014:

1st place

U-TURN [Design: Michel Charlot]

Accent light in an instant. The new LED spots family U-TURN invites to interact with light. Since the gap in the lamp’s head is magnetic on both sides, it can easily be separated from the bowl, turned around and plugged again. This is how direct or indirect LED light can be selected immediately if desired.

The changeable light angle makes U-TURN flexible and funny.

Manufacturer: Belux

2nd place

CUBELIGHT CL1 [Design: Mathias Schifferdecker]

18 glass cubes – 14 transparent ones and four in red, yellow, green and blue each one – can be towered and combined again and again. The LED light source in the chrome-plated socket lights the object from below and it breaks the glass cubes in different spectrums according to how the cubes are organized. The number of cubes is expandable if desired.

CUBELIGHT isn’t a simple ambience light – rather an object of lifestyle. A moody light which permits a lot of colour variations.

Manufacturer: Tecnolumen
