Sustainable Impact Prize - Energy Efficient Lighting Technologies x Design




Xavier Aymon (engineer, design and LED technology)

The R2D2 is a hanging lamp using LED light, which can be controlled, operated and programmed by means of a specially developed Smartphone app. The app makes it possible to adjust both the light temperature and the intensity of the light. With the help of LED technology, the light temperature is continuously variable and ranges from 2700 Kelvin (warm white) to 6500 Kelvin (daylight white). The app also gives you information about the energy consumption of the lamp and the resulting electricity costs. The form of the lamp is inspired by a classic industrial lamp. Its demonstrative simplicity means that it can be used in a wide variety of contexts – either in a domestic setting or in the office. In keeping with this, the aluminium lamp body is obtainable in different sizes and colour variants.

Comments by the Nominators

The archetypal formal appearance ensures that this luminaire can be used in many different situations. The modern LED technology meets the requirements of energy efficiency and sustainability. The specially developed control app not only makes the light easy to operate – it also gives a reading for the energy consumption.
