VISO Wins German Design Award

We are thrilled to announce that our Crema pendant light, designed by VISO Founder, Filipe Lisboa, has won the German Design Award for Excellent Product Design in Lighting.

The German Design Award is one of the best-known design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles. The awards honour innovative products, their manufacturers, and designers, who have made pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape.

After an extensive evaluation process involving a panel of highly esteemed international jury, the German Design Council named the Crema as one of their 2018 winners.

Speaking on the win, VISO’s Managing Partner Tzetzy Naydenova said:

“We are thrilled that our Crema pendant has been recognized and named a winner of the German Design Awards. This win is a tribute to VISO’s dedication to innovation and design and we are honoured by this recognition.”

Crema combines tranquility and serenity in a simple and luminous fixture. Constructed from a semi-metalized polycarbonate body, the metalization fades from semi-gradient to clear, which is a very difficult goal to achieve. The interior contains a solid frosted glass LED diffuser that creates a welcoming glow. The pendant light is both peaceful and strong. Available on its own, it also shines as a part of a custom cluster.

VISO’s Wandering Star pendant light also received a Special Mention in the Excellent Product Design, Lighting, category. Made with solid European marble and a cast glass lens, it features metal details in a luxurious hairline bronze finish. The pendant stands on its own or is available as part of a custom cluster. Its application is perfect for residential and commercial spaces.
