Hyphen and Lines earn top honors from international product design competitions
Fluxwerx luminaires have once again been selected as the winners of Red Dot Product Design Award and iF Product Design, two of the world’s most sought-after marks of quality for good design. The winning luminaires – Lines, winner of both Red Dot and iF Product Design and Hyphen, winner of Red Dot award – combine minimalist design and architectural-grade materials with superior optical and energy performance. Extensively tested and assessed by juries of international designers from all over the globe, both luminaires were awarded the sought-after prizes for highest design and performance in the Lighting category.

Lines and Hyphen summarize our strive to deviate from the expected to deliver luminaires that merge the best in differentiated design and performance, without compromise. We are delighted to be recognized for our continued innovation by these renowned international design awards.
The competition for both awards was intense: in total, 11,000 entries were submitted to iF Design jury while Red Dot Product Design jury reviewed over 20,000 submissions from 60 countries. The juries scrutinized the products entered in the competitions in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.

Fluxwerx Illumination has been convincing the Red Dot Jury for years with constantly high design quality. The two luminaires awarded this year are particularly impressive due to their distinct shapes and minimalist form. Thanks to sophisticated design solutions, they can realize a wide range of lighting concepts. In addition to the visionary aspect, both lightning ranges are compelling by the choice of materials. Congratulations on this great achievement in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2023!
