Karice shines brightly at the 2017 International Design Awards, picking up first prize in the Illumination category.
Congratulations are in order! A Surrey-based design team has won gold in the Illumination category at the 10th annual International Design Awards competition in Los Angeles, California. Competing against thousands of entries from more than 52 countries around the world, Karice‘s Electron pendant, which reflects efficient engineering without compromising beauty or functionality, triumphed against some of the best design visionaries and upcoming emerging talents in design on a global level.Karice co-founder Maurice Dery and his son, Jordan, work tirelessly to produce custom lighting and metalwork for different organizations in the West, many fixtures of which stay true to Maurice’s guiding philosophy that aesthetic beauty is the by-product of intelligent design. Their Electron Pendant is part of a broader lighting series that includes an wall sconce—a design that won silver in the A’ Design Awards, was nominated for a London Design Award and was a Lighting Design Awards finalist in 2016.The award-winning pendant is deceptively simple (much like the subatomic particle it’s inspired by): suspended by a co-axial cable that allows for the pendant to illuminate without wires, the fixture has a sleek finish. Further contributing to this refined aesthetic, the pendant’s surface is free of visible fasteners. Because it’s also free of electrical wiring pollution, the fixture appears to be floating in mid-air. In other words: it’s gorgeous. Check out the winning design below!
