The winning product, CIRCA, was designed, manufactured, and brought to market by Redditch-based Tamlite Lighting’s in-house Product Development Team. It was recognised by the Judges for its ability to deliver high levels of efficiency and performance - as well as its low environmental impact design.
CIRCA is set apart from a lot of other similar technologies. From the earliest stages of the design cycle, Tamlite set out to reduce the use of virgin materials, designing the luminaire based around integrating existing Tamlite tooling elements - with decarbonisation and environmental impact very much at the forefront of the ideas. Component re-utilisation, and specification of materials that can be 100% recycled or reused at the end of use, was also a huge factor in the design.
Localism is also important. The product design team have made sure the luminaire is produced locally, with materials and parts conceptualised, designed, and manufactured in the UK, supported by a Midlands Supply Chain for a more sustainable solution.
Commenting on the team’s award win, Eduardo Oliveira MDes (Hons) who is Tamlite’s Product Development Manager, said:
“We are absolutely thrilled that our new CIRCA luminaire has been recognised for his award. This is wonderful news for our team, it demonstrates our leadership in the field of sustainable design. We feel this product marks a real milestone for our industry, and certainly it sits amongst Tamlite’s finest achievements to date."
