The winning luminaire 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 a team of international designers, Aperture was awarded the sought-after prizes for highest design quality.

Winning the Red Dot: Best of the Best is a very special honor, because only a very small percentage of entries are granted this distinction. It is well-deserved recognition for a wonderful design achievement and proof that the winner is amongst the best in design.
Aperture is a linear suspended luminaire that delivers a true breakthrough in performance optics and aesthetic innovation. Its 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.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design, whose origins date back to 1955, appraises the best products created every year. In 48 categories, manufacturers and designers can enter their innovations in the competition. According to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, the jury evaluates the entries and only awards a Red Dot to products that win them over with their high design quality.
