ETAP wins iF Award 2017 with fully updated R8[ 07-02-2017 ]
The iF Awards 2017 have crowned ETAP and its new R8 for its design excellence. The 58-member jury that bestowed this internationally renowned design prize opted for the elegant diffuser luminaire.
The international jury judged the entries, based on design, choice of materials, finish, ergonomics and environmental impact, among others. This is the sixteenth iF Award in ETAP history: proof that our luminaires are not only efficient and comfortable, but are also eye-catching.
Slim and stylish
More than ever, the new R8 LED version - developed in collaboration with Belgian design studio Stefan Schöning - is a slim and stylish fixture and an ideal match for minimalist interiors. This fully sealed unit is made from satin-anodised polycarbonate. The HaloOptics® diffuser provides even illumination, without dark areas. The R8 adds architectural value to the most diverse environments such as entrance halls, conference rooms/showrooms, businesses, schools, stores and hospitals.
Whimsical and creative
The updated R8 provides you with the freedom to set up your lighting in a whimsical and creative way. The luminaires come in several lengths and can be installed in numerous configurations – surface-mounted or suspended, linked or individual, horizontal or vertical. Do not be afraid to give free rein to your creativity. Upon request the R8 series can also be delivered as a continuous light line, up to 5 metres long.
