Sonneman, the American modern lighting brand known for its refined, highly innovative contemporary lamps, was the recipient of three lighting awards this spring, taking home honors in three major categories: pendant lamp, wall light and floor lamp. Recognizing Sonneman's achievements in lighting design were London's Arc Magazine, which focuses on decorative lighting in architecture, New York's Metropolis Magazine, a leading voice of modern architecture and design, and LIGHTFAIR, the world's largest lighting trade show.
Arc Magazine's Darc Awards selected Sonneman's Abstract Panels Sconce as the Best Decorative Wall Fixture, honoring an unusually artful LED wall light that features a layered arrangement of graduated metal panels. The graceful, asymmetric shape of the panels, modeled around the shape of river stones, and the subtle LED lighting emanating from behind each layer, render this modern sconce as much sculptural wall decoration as contemporary LED wall light. Available in either 2-panel or 4-panel iterations, Abstract Panels typifies the Sonneman penchant for creating lamps that merge economy, subtlety and sophistication in a single, striking composition.
