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.
Pablo’s portable lamp-speaker hybrid sets the perfect poolside atmosphere. The stylish device achieves its campfire glow with LED Warm Dimming technology, which emulates the radiance of an incandescent bulb. A touch-sensitive dial adjusts both the brightness and the high-fidelity surround sound. For effortless ambience, it’s operable via Bluetooth, playing music for eight hours on a single charge. Above all, this luminaire thrives on the go: with leather handles, a durable polycarbonate shade and a silicone base, it can weather the most raucous get-together.
Studio: Pablo, U.S.
Designers: Carmine Deganello and Pablo Pardo
