Sylvania is pleased to announce that its new range of decorative luminaires and lamps, Sylvania SylCone has won the ‘Product Design 2016’ accolade at the prestigious Red Dot Awards. SylCone perfectly combines contemporary aesthetics and technology with vintage style to create a unique decorative luminaire. The hand-blown glass lamp is available in three distinctive designs and incorporates the latest LED filament technology to provide a powerful yet efficient light source that replicates the warm glow of traditional, incandescent lighting with a 2000K colour temperature.

The Red Dot Award for design concept is an internationally recognised professional design competition for exceptional design concept worldwide. Awarded to companies who produce products with a strong focus on innovative product design, the Red Dot award winners are chosen by expert juries in the areas of product design, communication design, and design concepts. Receiving this year’s Red Dot: Product Design award marks Sylvania’s excellence in the largest competition for product design, which included nearly 5,214 entries from 57 countries this year. 

“We are delighted to have been recognised by the Red Dot Award team” says Zhi Schraft, Segment Marketing Manager – EMEA, Feilo Sylvania. “Incorporating the latest LED filament technology, Sylvania SylCone provides end users with a powerful, practical and carefully designed luminaire which is affordable to all. A Red Dot award gives us the honour of being associated with the best in the product design industry.”

SylCone can be paired with a stylish pendant, available in copper, black, nickel and brass to suit a variety of installations. The flexible pendant base can move up or down the cord and will fit the majority of E27 base types. It has been designed to conceal the dimmable electronics housed within the lamp, with only the glass and metal visible. Surface mounted and table lamp versions are also available.

The Dimmable LED filament lamp lets users create the perfect ambient light level. With its extremely high lumen efficacy of 104lm/w and lifetime of 15,000 hours, the SylCone is as practical as it is stylish.
