Io, designed by Arkoslight’s head of design Rubén Saldaña, won over the 58-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its outstanding design and performance. The competition was intense: over 5,500 entries were submitted from 59 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.
About the IF Design Award
Since over 60 years, the IF Design Award has been recognized as an arbiter of quality for exceptional design. The iF label is renowned worldwide for outstanding design services, and the IF Design Award is one of the most important design prizes in the world. Submissions are awarded in the following disciplines: Product, Packaging, Communication and Service Design, Architecture and Interior Architecture as well as Professional Concepts. All awarded entries are featured on the IF World Design Guide, in the IF Design App and are displayed at the IF Design Exhibition Hamburg.
Io is a LED spotlight miniaturised in a fixture that is so small that it fits on the palm of your hand. Designed for accent lighting applications, its small dimensions mean it can be fitted in display cabinets, shop windows and small places without generating an invasive presence on the scene.
Created to be placed individually on the surface, or on a track, it offers all the features of concentrated LED spotlights with a minimalist and hyper-reduced design.
