“Pois”, the light made exclusively by Elesi Luce, carried off first prize as “Best decorative light by a historic company”. The prestigious prize was awarded as part of the Venetian Smart Lighting Award 2019, the contest that aims to showcase excellent products made by companies belonging to the Network and shine the spotlight on companies in the smart lighting industry located in the Veneto region. For this year’s edition, the contest announced a special prize especially for “historic companies that have been operating in the region for at least 10 years, for a decorative light that symbolises the continuity of Veneto’s industrial tradition”.
The jury, made up of lighting designers and other leading representatives from the lighting world, focused on both the aesthetical aspects of the products entered and their functionality as all-round lighting solutions.
“Pois” was the winner, deemed as a “light that combines traditional glass work with valid, not vacuous functionality, to achieve an elegant and original organic form featuring stylised, clean-cut lines. Weightlessness and equilibrium are delivered in a precious material, with highly appealing, harmonious parabolas.”
