THE DRIVING FORCES BEHIND THE SCENES

Stream is an uplight that combines maximum flexibility with optimum light quality

They did not wish to miss the opportunity to be present at the Red Dot Awards ceremony to receive their Award in person. After the long process from the initial idea to the end product they indeed had every reason to celebrate: Kornelius Reutter and Maria Golsouzidou from Regent Lighting were the driving forces behind the design of Stream. 

But what does “design” really mean? Design is not just the development of something that looks pretty, but the idea behind an overall concept to make the users of the space happy. In the case of the Stream uplight, the concept comprises a high level of flexibility in many respects. Every user can align the light to suit his/her requirements, simply by positioning the luminaire where it is needed. And not only that: the luminaire can also be flexibly adjusted and the light controlled to generate the desired conditions. Whether it is a matter of providing light for a workplace, or a special situation that requires completely different lighting, Stream always makes itself useful by creating the appropriate atmosphere in the space. 

In spite of its excellent adaptation skills Stream does not fail to fulfil mandatory requirements as well: the uplight meets all standards and regulations for office lighting. And it could not be easier for the customer to apply. Maximum functionality harmonizes with excellent aesthetics. Underscored by high-grade materials and a clear design language. 
The Red Dot jury recognised all this and commended Stream as a well-designed and highly functional product solution. 

In the former Zollverein colliery, an impressive world heritage site in Essen/DE, the two designers from Regent who played a significant role in the design of Stream were able to celebrate their well-earned success.
