The lighting design for the Duke Ellington School of the Arts project continues to make headlines. The latest includes recognition from Architectural Products magazine in its annual Product Innovation Award program. The project was one of seven that was awarded a PIA in the Project Application category. The judges noted that in this project, “Technology not only saves energy but generates very comfortable lighting in a setting where occupant comfort, and concentration, matters.”
The Product Innovation Awards, or “PIAs,” honor the most innovative LED/solid-state luminaires and controls solutions on the market, while also recognizing the companies behind the components that make up these light sources. Judged by a group of 19 independent industry professionals, the program represents a mechanism to impartially review products and present to its readers items their peers found innovative and worth investigating.
The lighting design for Duke Ellington called for high-quality products that would support the intended experience of the space, meet precise light levels in certain areas, perform as advertised and contribute to building code compliance. Products from Prescolite, Litecontrol, Columbia Lighting and AAL are featured throughout the facility.
This award program is separate but related to Architectural SSL Magazine’s annual PIA program, which determines and honors the most innovative LED/solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market while also recognizing the companies behind the components that make up these light sources. In October Hubbell Lighting announced it won three 2019 Architectural SSL PIAs, including BEST RETROFIT WITH SSL for the Duke Ellington project.Tagged with award, Hubbell
