Mobile wins prestigious Red Dot Design Award

Red Dot Design Award

The Red Dot Design Award is a prestigious award given for outstanding design and quality. Only products, projects and concepts that stand out with their exceptional design are awarded this coveted seal of quality by an international jury.

"The idea behind Mobile was to create a flexible and expressive pendant with a pleasant, indirect light. With Mobile you have the unique opportunity to create just the light you want, as you can change the light expression by moving the top shade up and down. The movement gives Mobile a personal and unique expression. I am very proud to be acknowledged with a Red Dot Design Award – it is a great recognition and understanding of the values and thoughts I have put into the design."

- Designer Maria Berntsen

Mobile has a simple, yet elegant design expression. The soft lines, rounded shapes and elegant brass detail provides Mobile with a light appearance that elegantly frames the light without blocking the view.

The light is beautifully reflected from the bottom shade onto the opalized top shade, emitting an indirect and pleasant light. What makes Mobile truly unique is the interactive and playful design, where you can easily adjust the shades closer together for a centred, downward light or further apart for a more diffused light spreading out into the room.

Beautiful design in a good quality must be obtainable for everyone. In brief, this is the essence of the Nordlux vision – Design For The People. It has been developed over the last years and has led to a rapidly growing number of design wonders for the home – developed in a close co-operation with acclaimed Danish designers.
