DIMINUTIVE FIXTURE, BIG AWARD FOR FLUXWERX
iF International Forum Design selects Profile Mini as the winner in the lighting category
Vancouver, BC | February 18, 2020 –
After an intensive, three-day session in Hamburg, Germany, Profile Mini by Fluxwerx was selected by the 78-member international iF DESIGN AWARD jury. The 2020 competition was intense: over 7,298 entries were submitted from 56 countries in hopes of receiving this coveted distinction.
Profile Mini is continuation of the minimalist architectural aesthetic of the original and iconic Profile series featuring an open aperture design with fully luminous interior—with no horizontal lenses or diffusers.
— Reuben Bartlett, President of Fluxwerx
When we introduced Profile, the seamless integration of optical innovation with minimalist industrial design redefined what is possible in this product category. Profile Mini further pushes the boundaries of scale in this architectural design with no compromise in lighting performance. We are thrilled to be recognized for our continued innovation and advanced optics.
Profile Mini can be installed as an independent pendant or as a continuous lighting system with virtually seamless runs. Profile Mini’s low brightness, continuous lenses emit light from both interior planes of the luminaire, efficiently and precisely directed to create a batwing distribution in both the hemispheres. At only 2” in height, Profile Mini outperforms many larger luminaires enabling highly efficient, widely spaced runs with exceptional performance.
This is the third iF product design award for Fluxwerx, having also won a iF award for Fold and Aperture luminaires.
