Havells Sylvania retains Best Interior Luminaire crown at Lighting Design Awards
London, 22nd March 2011 - Concord, part of the global lighting manufacturer Havells Sylvania has been honoured with the Best Interior Luminaire crown for the 2nd year in succession at the Lighting Design Awards, the heart of the architectural lighting industry. The Concord Beacon LED range including the Beacon Muse impressed the judges in a Dragon’s Den style interview process which added a new level of difficulty to even reach the short-list.
Ben Cronin, Editor of Lighting Magazine commented:
“The Lighting Design Awards continue to showcase the best of the lighting industry. This year the judges found it more difficult than ever to separate some extremely strong entries. We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the projects and products submitted this year, which speaks volumes for the health of the lighting industry.”
The judges added - 'Concord Beacon LED - Havells Sylvania. Fantastic optical performance set to become a professional spotlight classic'.
As Concord’s Design Office Manager Tony Lawrence explains, “LED technology has allowed us to bring to market a fully versatile spotlight which could not be achieved with Halogen. We have used our experience from previous LED spotlights to manage the heat whilst controlling and adjusting the optical performance to give an even beam from a narrow spot to a wide flood in a single product“.
Nick Farraway, European Vice President for Luminaires added “Havells Sylvania is committed to investment in technology and innovation. We are proud and honoured to achieve this award from the lighting design and architectural lighting community as a testament to the years of knowledge and experience that are behind this revolutionary product.”
The new Concord Beacon LED range includes the Beacon Muse LED which uses cutting-edge technology and ancient lens principles to create a fully adjustable spotlight. The new Muse’s adjustable optic system provides a wide flood 65˚ beam angle which can be adjusted to a 10˚ spot without the need for additional lenses or reflectors.
This fully adjustable spotlight provides all the benefits of LED technology, no UV / IR radiation, 50,000 hours life at 70% luminous flux, maintenance free applications and a considerable reduction in energy consumption over traditional light sources such as halogen.
Muse is available in 3000K & 4000K CCT with a high colour rendering index, typical Ra95 incorporating a discrete on board dimmer providing control from 100% to 0% and also collective track dimming options, essential requirements for museums, galleries and high end retail applications. The contemporary all die-cast aluminium design is supplied with a turned single piece aluminium front helix with engraved beam angles for simple and easy adjustment.
The versatility of Muse means that the designer has a completely flexible lighting tool, so for exhibitions and shop lighting applications there is no need to change spotlights, reflectors or lenses a simple adjustment to the luminaire will transform the lit space saving considerable time and money. Muse is a true revolution in accent and display spotlighting.
