Iserlohn, November 7, 2018: After numerous awards for the LUCTRA® brand, the TABLE and LUCTRA® FLEX products, VITAWORK, the youngest member of the product range, has now been awarded a prestigious award. The German Design Council awarded the "Special Mention" award in the Lighting category for outstanding design.
The official handover will take place during the award ceremony on 8 February 2019 in Frankfurt.
It was not until March of this year that the new LUCTRA® luminaire was presented at the Light & Building. LUCTRA® VITAWORK® supplements the range of floor and table lamps as well as mobile luminaires with a new version, which is suitable for illuminating the entire office area by means of direct and indirect light. VITAWORK® consistently continues LUCTRA® DNA by bringing the latest LED technology to the workplace.
The LEDs installed in the luminaire head energetically supply either an asymmetrical or symmetrical light distribution via a light panel. Therefore, VITAWORK® is also suitable for illuminating larger and deeper offices. The new LUCTRA® floor lamp meets the requirements of DIN EN 12464-1.
The design is restrained and functional. With the focus on the quality of light, the appearance consciously dispenses with unnecessary elements. The clean lines fit easily into any room environment and enhance it. The touch panel control element on the luminaire body is also clearly designed and intuitively usable. All materials used underline the high quality standards and are recyclable.
Jonathan Brune, Brand Director LUCTRA®: "We are very excited about this award. With VITAWORK® we reach another target group, as our new luminaire is particularly suitable for project planning. The design is the transfer of the already established approach for LUCTRA®. The German Design Award confirms to us that this has been convincingly achieved."
LUCTRA® is the brand for good working light in the office or at home. For this purpose, the table, floor and mobile lamps included in the range provide light which not only illuminates, but also makes people happy, more efficient and simultaneously less tired. This works, because it transmits the right impulses for every situation. To this end, the professional, biologically effective LED lamp system utilizes the latest scientific findings about the effect of light on human beings. It follows the principle of Human Centric Lighting, for short HCL, by focusing on human beings with their personal lighting needs for healthier and more efficient working and living. LUCTRA® light can almost perfectly simulate natural daylight and thus supports the user’s personal inner clock. LUCTRA® has already received numerous renowned design prizes such as the German Design Award and was brought to market in 2015 by the long-established company DURABLE Hunke & Jochheim GmbH & Co. KG. This company has been dedicated to professional work for almost a century: to its organisation, its processes and its equipment. DURABLE currently employs 700 workers worldwide and has its Head Office in Iserlohn/ Germany. All LUCTRA® lamps are assembled manually by the expert staff of the LUCTRA® production plant in Kamen (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany).
