4 Innovative Light Controls Sweep their Category
Vaughan, ON (February 27,2015) - Four dramatically different lighting controls from Legrand’s adorne® collection of light switches, dimmers, outlets and design-driven wall plates achieved gold and silver at the recent IIDEX Innovation Awards, which took place December 3-4, 2014 in Toronto, ON:
- GOLD – adorne® Portable Nightlight Flashlight
- SILVER – adorne® Pop-Out Outlet
- SILVER – adorne® Touch Dimmer
- SILVER – adorne® Wave Switch
The IIDEX awards are the latest in a series of honours achieved by adorne®. Other awards include a 2013 Bronze Award at the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) competition, and the 2013 People’s Choice Award at HI Connect Design™.
“We’re thankful to receive these coveted wins, which tell us that we have truly raised the bar in our market,” said Philip Prestigomo, Legrand’s director of industrial design for North America. “Diligent research has led us to several conclusions, including how much opportunity there is in reinventing household lighting controls—a fundamental aspect of the home which has seen little design and technological innovation in the last 100 years.”

Portable Nightlight Flashlight: Simply push on this innovative nightlight to remove it from the wall and use it as a flashlight. This device recharges while mounted in the wall and operates for up to 10 hours without having to recharge.
Pop-Out Outlet: lets you hide an outlet when not in use. Simply push on the outlet, and it disappears into the wall. When you're ready to plug something in, just push on the box and the outlets will "pop-out," offering three-outlets-in-one and enabling easy access to power.
Touch Dimmer: features a stunning translucent face and operates just like an iPad – simply press your finger on the circle to turn lights on and off, or use the arrows on the right to dim them. Thanks to its Tru-Universal technology, this dimmer automatically adapts to any load or combination of loads attached to it.
Wave Switch: features innovative technology combined with sleek, contemporary design. Simply wave your hand in front of the switch to turn lights on and off.
