The Airabesc OLED luminaire is the symbiosis of the latest lighting technology and the highest design demands. As if modeled by the wind (air), the elements of the reduced, symmetric form appear to float in the air. Despite the flowing airiness and harmony of the structures, which are inspired by the arabesque, a ballet position, the biomorphic design casts a spell over the observer.
This remarkable silhouette would not have been possible with any of the traditional lighting technologies. Because as never before, the light source of the Airabesc simultaneously forms its structural element and thus moves the theme of organic material into the spotlight. The motto "Shape follows on from function" was yesterday. With the Airabesc, the phrase "Shape reflects technology" applies.
After the Airabesc was distinguished with the red dot product design award 2011 in the "Product Design" category, it also received an official nomination for the German Design Award. Those nominated for the German Design Award are in the international "Champions' League". Only first class designs which today are already setting the benchmarks for tomorrow have a chance of winning this coveted prize. The list of honors continued in December 2011. The Airabesc won the Interior Innovation Award as well as the renowned Good Design Award in Chicago.
