Vancouver, BC | February 19, 2019 –
Fluxwerx, a world leader of high-performance, LED luminaires for commercial and institutional spaces, has been selected as the winner of two world renowned product design awards, iF Product Design award 2019 and GOOD DESIGN® Award 2018. The winning luminaires combine minimalist design and architectural-grade materials with superior optical and energy performance, delivering precise batwing distribution, exceptional functionality and energy efficiency. Tested and assessed by juries of international designers, both luminaires were awarded the sought-after prizes for highest design quality.
“We are honored that Fluxwerx products have been recognized by these internationally recognized seals of quality. It is our goal to deliver luminaires that merge the very best in LED performance, industrial design and sustainability. Having two more of our products selected as winners is great validation of our consistent dedication and effort to push the boundaries of LED technology and differentiated world-class product design.”

A linear suspended luminaire that delivers a true breakthrough in performance optics and aesthetic innovation. Aperture’s transformative, differentiated form, scale, and performance combine with the next step in Anidolic Extraction technology to seamlessly integrate with modern industrial design. Unlike anything else, a series of cellular voids allow clear views right through the luminaire to the architecture above; all while still delivering a visual experience that is simultaneously unique and comfortable. Aperture’s finely detailed architecture makes it a perfect fit for use in contemporary-styled commercial applications. The luminaire is available with two endcap options and numerous exterior finishes including clear architectural anodized aluminum or standard and custom RAL powdercoat paint choices.
After an intensive three-day session in Hamburg, Aperture won over the 67-member iF DESIGN AWARD jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world. The competition was intense: over 6,400 entries were submitted from 50 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.
A family of linear suspended and recessed LED luminaires in a minimalist form merging optical technology and industrial design. Utilizing our new Radial Anidolic optic technology, a 360° batwing distribution allows non-contiguous rows and increased end-to-end spacing. The result is outstanding uniformity, visual comfort and energy savings. A choice of distribution options and ceiling integration features allows Loop to be used as a solution in a multitude of environments and conditions.

Since 1950, it has become an internationally acknowledged benchmark and symbol of outstanding design that serves as a beacon for design-interested audiences in our global economies.” – Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Atheanaeum
