Top Honours for Solus Light Bulbs at
The National UX Awards
Solus Light Bulbs have been nominated for not one but two prestigious awards this week at the National UX Awards. Over 500 people attended the black-tie ceremony at the Ballsbridge Hotel in competition for one of only 15 awards presented. Celebrations went on into the early hours with live music and entertainment.
Solus joined ESB Networks, Overcast HQ and three others in the category of ‘UX Achievement in Productivity & Utilities’. Solus were also shortlisted in the hotly contested ‘Innovation in UX’ category and joined high profile projects like ‘Newswire by Storyful’, Samsung AR by VRAI, and government initiatives such as the ‘Online Child Passport Renewals by The Passport Service’
The UX Awards is a new awards programme that provides a platform from which to amplify and celebrate the UX world and the incredible contribution those in it; the designers, developers, agencies, clients, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders, make to economies and societies.
Solus were commended for their achievements in product design with their muti-award winning new XCrossTM Filament technology. This next generation LED bulb with XCrossTM filament design uses up to 87% less energy, with a natural, warm light and up to 15,000 hours lifespan. Solus were also commended for their Packaging Design with helpful on pack guides to enhance the customer experience and their pioneering new Customer Lighting Experience Displays. These high-level display solutions allow customers to ‘try me’ and see exactly what the light bulbs feel like in various surroundings and act as ‘silent shop assistants’ informing and educating consumers.
“We were very proud to be among the best in the business at The UX Awards. This nomination is testament to our commitment to innovation and new technology” said David Reynolds, Sales and Marketing Director.
