The LIT Lighting Design Awards and The Architectural Products Magazine select Fluxwerx Hyphen as the winner in Lighting Product Design categories


Fluxwerx Hyphen earns top marks from two international product design competitions

The LIT Lighting Design Awards and The Architectural Products Magazine have both selected Fluxwerx Hyphen family of luminaires as the winner in their respective Lighting Product Design categories. A recipient of Red Dot 2023 product design award in the Lighting category, Hyphen transcends traditional general area illumination and downlighting with its unique options and exceptional visual comfort.

Embodied in discrete 10″ or 20″ forms with an ultra-narrow, linear aesthetic, Hyphen is available in recessed and surface mount in both fixed and adjustable versions. Used on its own or coordinated, Hyphen is the complementary continuation of the ultra-narrow 0.71″ optical aesthetic of Fluxwerx Portal and Lines families. Together, these luminaire families present a comprehensive collection of aesthetically aligned Fluxwerx solutions.


It is our goal to deliver products with meaningful differentiation for the lighting community by merging application based optics with modern industrial design. Hyphen pushes the boundaries of scale in an architectural design with no compromise in lighting performance and we are honored that it is being recognized with these prestigious awards.

Designed for simple integration with many environments allowing for a minimum depth of 1/2" and a maximum depth of 1.25", Hyphen Recessed can be chosen in either Trim or Trimless fixed variants and an adjustable version delivering a 60° lateral range of motion. Single and Twin Optic Hyphen Surface luminaires feature minimalist aesthetics and unique and specific functional forms, both delivering 90° vertical-motion and 360° horizontal rotational adjustability. Hyphen is available in three high performance distributions—65° Wide, 45° Medium and a 25°x75° Narrow Ellipse. Available in a breadth of length, optical, mounting and distribution options, there is an application-based solution for every need.



Created to recognize the efforts of talented international lighting product designers and lighting implementers, the LIT Awards was envisioned to celebrate creativity and innovation in the fields of lighting products and applications. The 7th edition of the LIT Lighting Design Awards attracted over 800 submissions from 58 countries. A distinguished panel of 45 professionals, including architects, interior designers, academics, and media representatives in the lighting industry, evaluated the entries, selecting those that exemplified outstanding creativity and innovation.


The winning entries of the LIT Lighting Design Awards 2023 showcase extraordinary creativity. This year, we introduced a 'Sustainability Approach' section, providing companies with a platform to showcase the eco-friendly aspects of their projects or products.
