Last December, the fifth edition of the ‘‘Grands Prix du Design”, a Quebec-wide contest, honoured different companies for their outstanding creations and innovations that stood out in the design industry. Philips Lumec’s UrbanScape won the Luminaire Prize ‘’Prix Appareil d’éclairage”.
The idea for UrbanScape was developped by Philip Lumec’s New Product department in collaboration with Morelli Designers, a Montreal-based company. Morelli Designers was founded 25 years ago and is specialized in the development of sustainable goods in different fields.
UrbanScape is a stylish contemporary outdoor luminaire designed for the North American market. It is designed to skillfully blend modern elegance with the latest technology in the lighting industry, the LEDgine platform.
Here are a few more details about UrbanScape that you should know in order to understand better the details behind its design and its contemporary use. It was designed for urban projects that range from simple utilitarian installations to grand architectural ones. Its unique design with subtle yet sophisticated details has a flat lens that highlights the thinness of the LEDs. All in all: a high-quality lighting, a delicate shape and a very modern look.
What exactly is the ‘‘Grands Prix du Design’’?
The ‘‘Grands Prix du Design’’, formerly known as the “PRIX INTÉRIEURS | FERDIE” and cofounded in 2007 by INTÉRIEURS Magazine and FERDIE (Fonds d’Études et de Recherches en Design d’Intérieur de l’Est)’’, is a design contest for the Quebec market. It originated as a partnership between a company dedicated to the promotion of Design and a Foundation whose mission it is to encourage excellence in Design. Both wanted to recognize the contribution of Design professionals to the quality of life experienced by Quebecers, and publicize their talent.
‘‘The Grands Prix du Design” are now widely recognized as the contemporary showcase and testimonial to the incredible talent shown by the Quebec Design community in residential, commercial, institutional, product, service and office contract design.
With this design award more people will become aware of what Philips Lumec knew all along: UrbanScape is a beauty.
