The DALI Alliance (DiiA) has announced the winners of its prestigious DALI Lighting Awards 2021.
Recognizing the best use of DALI lighting control applications and solutions across the world, the standard of entries within each of the eight categories was exceptionally high.
However, the international judging panel of lighting designers, lighting magazine editors, and representatives from global lighting organizations, eventually came to their decisions.
Victorious in the Commercial/Professional category is Helvar for its work on ‘The Spine’, the new headquarters in the north of England (Liverpool) for the Royal College of Physicians.
Here, a fully addressable DALI lighting control system ensures optimal user experience and excellent light quality, including defined light levels for the biophilia aspect of the project.
The Entertainment & Architectural award is bestowed upon Delmatic for its contribution to Expo 2020 Dubai. Delmatic’s future-proofed DALI systems provide highly sustainable scene-setting control, monitoring, and smart-data sharing throughout the Sustainability and Mobility Pavilions.
Comprising some 51,000 DALI assets, the system provides the versatility of lighting layouts and scenes, and adaptability to meet the requirements of future tenants.
zencontrol is the winner in the Healthcare & Education category, with its work at the University of Warwick’s new Faculty of Arts in the UK catching the eye of judges.
The data obtained from the DALI-2 system, which includes emergency lighting testing and monitoring, was seen as a key factor in minimizing the university’s carbon footprint.
Winner in the Industrial category is Trilux for its work in helping international logistics group Kuehne+Nagel on its journey to a carbon-neutral future at two facilities in Hamburg, Germany. The highly efficient, DALI-networked LED solutions feature light management and IoT capability.
The Outdoor award is now in the hands of Shanghai Euchips for its overpass lighting scheme in Xi’an, China. DALI-controlled lighting, including over 10,000 LED drivers, enables accurate control of on-off state, brightness, and color according to traffic flow at different times and seasons.
Lighting Design International is the winner of the Residential award thanks to its work on the redevelopment of Regent’s Crescent, London, into 76 luxury contemporary residences. DALI is used as a future-proofed modular lighting control system communicating to the KNX building network. Communal lighting makes use of pre-set lighting scenes that are triggered automatically by an astrological time clock with a manual override function for scenes and dimming levels.
In the Retail & Hospitality category, the winner is Inverse Lighting Design for its contribution to The Londoner boutique hotel in the heart of London’s theatre district.
Last but not least, Delmatic has cause for a double celebration as the company is also the winner of the Infrastructure category for its Doha Metro project on behalf of the Qatar Railways Company.
