In 2017, manufacturers and designers from 54 nations submitted their product innovations. Over three days, 39 experts from all over the world assessed the individual objects live and on-site in Essen and identified the best products of the year. Degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality and ecological compatibility are only a few of the criteria that went into the decision. With the Flex Horn, Sengled won the prestigious 'Red Dot' award in the area 'product design'.
Easy usage thanks to WiFi connection and app
The Flex is an LED light bulb with a built-in JBL® speaker. Not only does it ensure individual lighting but, thanks to the WiFi interface, connects with the home network. This way, not only can the user play their favourite songs from their personal music library but also from streaming services like Spotify, Deezer or internet radio stations. With the smartphone app (iOS™, Android™), lighting and music settings can conveniently be operated. For example, the light can be smoothly dimmed. Complementary to the Flex, Sengled offers the lampshade Horn. It complements the great sounding LED light bulb and turns it into a true designer piece. The combination of music light bulb and lampshade was able to convince the judges.
"We are very proud that Sengled has received a world-renowned award with the Flex Horn", explains Jutta Peinze, Europe Marketing Director & Business Development at Sengled. "It is very important to us to make life easier for our customers in a connected home. For this reason, we constantly develop our products further and place particular value on sustainable production. For us, it is a great acknowledgement that our work has now received the Red Dot Award in the category 'product design'".
