Yet another significant acknowledgement for Vimar which, following the Venetian Smart Lighting Award, the Iconic Award and the DAME Design Award claimed in 2018, starts off the new year by winning another major award for product design. In fact, the brand was the recipient of the prestigious 2019 Red Dot Award in the Product Design category thanks to its Eikon Tactil series.
Seductive from the very first glance, the silhouettes of these devices bring to life a surface capable of enhancing even the most exclusive interiors. To accommodate the requirements of a market that is increasingly demanding products with sophisticated technologies as well as minimal, clean-cut silhouettes, top quality materials and fine finishes, Eikon Tactil is in fact also available with customised finishes like solid wood, natural leather, carved stone and Corian®.
And indeed these prized materials also conceal Vimar’s KNX controls. Activating them requires just a light touch, then transformed by the sophisticated touch technology into direct energy control. As soon as they are touched, a sensor detects your proximity to the device and activates the built-in RGB LED backlighting. And when the push button is pressed, a dedicated signal provides acoustic feedback.
Designed to contain up to 6 independent buttons (programmable via ETS to accomplish on/off control functions, control roller shutters and lights, call up scenarios and many others), Vimar KNX controls are also equipped with bus terminals built into the device, which greatly simplify the wiring and avoid any chance of error in the connections. Winning the 2019 Red Dot Award confirms the extent to which Vimar, as a genuine ambassador of excellence Made in Italy, focuses its attention on the design and quality of its product range.
