For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.
As they unspool from ceilings, down walls and across floors, like a model of a futuristic transit system, Mono-Lights both conform to and redefine a room’s boundaries. The minimal lighting system from OS ∆ OOS encases LED strips in easy-to-handle white plastic tubes, joined into segments by silicone foam connectors. Small pucks of grey-veined marble secure the terminus points to the ground, a wall or a power source. For a suspended effect, aluminum discs may be threaded through silicone foam loops to support the network.
