DARK wins four reddot design awards

20 March 2009 14.00 BST

(Belgium) - The Belgian lighting producer DARK has won four reddot design awards and two honourable mentions.

These prestigious prizes, awarded each year by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (Germany), are regarded as the Oscars of the design world. The reputation of the reddot design awards has spread all over the world. This year, the organisers received more than 3,000 entries from no less than 49 countries. For DARK® to pick up 6 awards is an amazing achievement.

The four winners were:

Design: Constantin Wortmann
Award: Reddot ‘best of the best’
This design by Constantin Wortmann is available as a hanging or floor-standing luminaire. Hanging, the Spacewalker appears to float weightlessly, almost as if it had just left its spacecraft in search of new discoveries. Floor-standing, it becomes more human in appearance. It can also be installed in the garden, as a fun and decorative ornament. The Spacewalker is white, but depending on the colour filter is able to blush, or turn yellow or blue.

Design: Christophe De Ryck for Dark
Award: Reddot
Christophe De Ryck’s ‘T&T’ is a versatile and particularly powerful creation. It also manifests a certain duality. Its hard and expressive shape contrasts with the rather more timid light diffused by this hanging lamp.

Design: Christophe De Ryck
Award: Reddot
In terms of shape, this wall-mounted luminaire is rather austere and architectural. Bringing to mind a flash of lighting. Or perhaps someone has attempted to carve a groove in the wall with a knife? In any case, the Pawww is a beautiful item, turning any wall into one big lighting element.

Design: Christophe De Ryck
Award: Reddot
Dark® is a master in designing large objects. The Twolve offers further proof. With its unusual shape, this chandelier, intended for larger rooms, takes on a different appearance depending on the viewing angle - from a spaceship to a mysterious creature from the depths of the oceans. The Twolve is available in a range of colours.
