We are proud to announce that our Orbital
collection has been awarded the "Iconic Award 2018 - Best of Best" in the "Innovative Architecture" range. The Orbital series has been designed by Bruno Erpicum
and co-developed and manufactured by TAL and ETP
Statement of the German Design Council: "This cleverly designed recessed luminaire combines smoke detection, ventilation, motion detection and sound to form a compact toolbox. Thanks to its modular design, the luminaire can be configured for the exact functions needed by the user. If only the lighting function is activated, the luminaire can be swivelled, making the Orbital a beautiful object to look at, as well as an interior lighting solution. This design concept seems so obvious, it's a wonder no one has thought of it before."
Innovative Architecture, established by the German Design Council, is the first independent international architecture and design competition to take into account the interplay between the various disciplines. Awards are given to visionary buildings, innovative products and sustainable communication in all sectors of architecture, the construction and real estate business and the manufacturing industries. The focus is on holistic production and interaction between the trades in the context of architecture.
The award will be presented on the occasion of the Expo Real trade show in Munich on 8 October 2018 at the architecturally significant Pinakothek der Moderne.
