Hera wins two coveted design awards - The LED L-Pad – impressive high product and design quality

The lighting specialist, Hera, based in Enger was able to score twice with its innovative under-cabinet luminaire, the LED L-Pad:- First of all, it was presented with the renowned red dot award for first-class design quality in the product design category and now the new lighting module, LED L-Pad, has received an award for premium product quality in the interzum design competition “interzum award: intelligent material & design”, which runs prior to the interzum trade fair.

The award-winning under-cabinet LED L-Pad was specifically developed as a stylish and also energy efficient luminaire for the kitchen, bathroom and shop areas. The extremely flat lighting module,
measuring 220 mm X 90 mm x 11 mm (L x B x H), is timeless and fits snugly into any modern facility. It is transformed into a real eye-catcher when displayed in refined colours like high-gloss black, white, anodised aluminium or stainless steel look.

Clever details for outstanding product quality

In addition to its design and choice of colours, the LED L-Pad also scores with a performance that cannot be found anywhere else. 36 LEDS of the newest generation produce a high-quality and homogeneous light while only using an electrical power input of 7.5 Watts. Depending on the lighting mood and atmosphere required, the model generates light in warm white and soon also in neutral white light colours. The light output attains a remarkable 65 Lumen/Watt (neutral white) or 60 Lumen/Watt (warm white), which is approximately the same light quality produced by a 35 Watt halogen lamp/ light bulb. An average life of 30,000 hours and the outstanding colour rendering properties of 90 Ra are additional highlights and convincing factors for using the LED L-Pad.

The LED L-Pad from Hera can be seen in action:- Together with the other award-winning products from the „interzum award: intelligent material & design“ competition, the new lighting solution can be seen at a special exhibition at the „interzum cologne 2011“ trade fair between 25th and 28th May 2011 in Cologne.
