Winners and honorees for both Products and Projects in 77 categories were announced during the ceremony at Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport. Lighting wins included:
Best Sconce – Della by Buoyant NYC | The Della Sconce consists of CNC machined Quartz and Onyx stone, wall mounted in such a way as to create impactful statements of shadow, light and translucency.
Best Pendant – Pebble Series by ANDlight | The Pebble series celebrates the inexplicable and beautiful qualities of stones. Enhancing their simple yet sculptural form through translucency, glass blown shapes come create a seemingly bespoke fixture – endlessly evolving in shape as it appears from different angles.
Best Chandelier – Haara Metsa by Cameron Design House | Designed to be hung vertically like a weeping willow branch the Metsa is a unique, contemporary statement piece at any size. The cylindrical lanterns are assembled from hand-drawn glass and polished brass, concealing the lighting element and creating a distinctive and beautiful lighting diffuser to be admired whether the light is on or off.
