The German Innovation Award honors outstanding innovation achievements. LEDVANCE is among the awarded companies this year –as part of the German Innovation Awards (GIA) 2020, the new BIOLUX® HCL System was recognized the winner in the category “Excellence in Business to Business – Lighting Solutions” for “innovations that advance the industry through their originality, implementation and effectiveness”.
The BIOLUX® HCL System focuses on the human being in lighting design and ensures a healthy and creative working environment. The German Innovation Awards honors products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions across all industrial sectors. The submitted products are evaluated by a jury based on the criteria: level of innovation, user benefits and efficiency. The innovation strategy should take into account aspects such as social, ecological and economical sustainability and the use of energy and resources. Factors such as location, employment potential, longevity, marketability, technical quality and function, materiality and synergy effects play a decisive role in the adjudication process.
The BIOLUX® HCL system is particularly ideal for use in offices, hospitals, doctors’ surgeries as well as in elder care and nursing homes.“The stimulating modes of our BIOLUX® HCL system increase productivity and well-being during the day and improve sleep quality at night”, explains LEDVANCE Managing Director Europe-West Dr. Oliver Vogler. “We are therefore very pleased that our contribution to a better work-health balance is being honored with the German Innovation Award.”
In addition to the German Innovation Award, LEDVANCE has previously won the Red Dot Award in the category Product Design 2020 for the outstanding design quality of its BIOLUX® HCL Control Unit.
