The Olsen collection of lamps, launched by B.Lux last year, has won the 2011 Good Design Award, and has also been chosen as part of the ADI-FAD Delta Selection. Olsen is a lighting collection comprising table, floor, suspension and ceiling lamps, designed by Jorge Pensi, which evokes the Nordic rationalism of Scandinavian countries and the organicism of the US.
Considered one of the most prestigious accolades in the world, the Good Design Award recognises the 'design excellence' of the Olsen collection, according to The Chicago Athenaeum, which decides the recipients of these awards. In total, hundreds of design objects were competing for these awards, belonging to different sectors, from over 48 countries all around the world.
The ADI-FAD Industrial Design Association of Catalonia also chose the Olsen collection of lamps as part of its Delta Selection 2012. Olsen will be competing with a further 56 products for the 2012 Delta Prize. On 28th June, an international panel of judges will decide the winner of the 35th edition of this competition. The Delta Selection is a distinction that acknowledges design and manufacturing quality, as well as innovation and conceptual renovation.
Olsen belongs to the B.Lux deco collection. It is one of the latest designs presented by the Basque lighting firm at the Euroluce 2011 trade show.
