Gold for Occhio: Mito linear wins highest honor in the German Design Award competition

Mito linear is Occhio’s creation for customers who seek multifunctional lighting, distinguished by coherent design and light quality – both at home and work. The jury of the German Design Award was so impressed by this innovative series of luminaires that it conferred its gold award to the system.

Intelligent, thought-out, exciting: Occhio’s new luminaire series Mito linear combines minimalist design with state-of-the-art lighting technology to produce perfect light – both in work or private settings. It was these qualities that won over the expert jury of the German Design Award. The innovative luminaire series was awarded the highest possible honor: Gold in the category »Excellent Product Design: Lighting.«

“With the new Mito, Occhio has succeeded in developing an architectural luminaire system that supplies the right light for every room in a living or work area and creates new opportunities for lighting design,” the jury of experts said. The jury was impressed in particular by the precise workmanship and the overall high quality of the light and materials. The holistically developed system with its innovative technical functions allows for virtually unlimited implementation. “A fantastic luminaire product that immensely expands the options of planners and architects as well as meets the very highest standards in terms of quality, aesthetics and function,” the jury remarked.

No matter whether it’s a floor, suspended, ceiling or wall washer luminaire, each item in the Mito linear collection was conceived as part of a comprehensive system that delivers the right light for every room in home and commercial settings. Mito linear combines a light touch in design with the love of detail to create a minimalistic work of art, a creation whose exceptional quality is reflected at every encounter. Varying surfaces such as the soft touch colors matt white, matt black, matt silver and gold, as well as the metallic PVD surfaces rose gold and bronze turn Mito linear into an all-round knockout that can be used in endless ways. With innovative features such as »touchless control« and »color tune«, Mito linear ensures the unique joy in use that Occhio is known for.
