We are delighted to announce that Baroncelli’s Flexus Series has been selected as a bronze winner in the International Design Awards’ lighting category; recognized for its excellence in originality, creativity, excellence of execution, and overall impact.
Based in Los Angeles, the International Design Awards exists to celebrate the world's most visionary designers, discover new and emerging talent, and promote the appreciation of design worldwide. Architects and designers of interiors, fashion, products, and graphics submitted entries from over 65 countries throughout the world, proving IDA's global emphasis. Judging was a rigorous process, with winners receiving publication of their work in the International Design Awards Book of Designs.
Jurors included Alice Blackwood - Editor, Design Quarterly; Lise Coirier - Editor-in-Chief, TL; Hans Fank - Editor-in-Chief, OBJEKT International; Aaron Kenedi - Editor-in-Chief, Print; Rebecca Epstein Kong - Co-Founder, Artware Editions; Raj Nandan - Managing Director, Indesign Group; Laurence Ng - Publisher, IdN; Josh Rubin - Editor-in-Chief, Founder, and Publisher, Cool Hunting; and other leaders and editors in the design community.
“The Flexus Series is a sophisticated and innovative modular design which invites users to build any shape or size of light using different combinations of a single component”, explains Giovanni Corrado, Baroncelli’s Design Director.
REX wall light from the Flexus series won the Best Contemporary Product Award from idFX at Decorex International 2011 when the series was launched along with pendant designs BRANCO, INDRO, PERSEO and the FOSCO wall light. Designs from the Flexus Series will be on display in Baroncelli’s New York showroom for the upcoming Spring Market held in the D&D building NY in May 2012. This will be a wonderful opportunity for our stateside clients to experience these award-wining designs in our newly refurbished showroom.
