HeadHat, the new system of hanging lamps designed by Santa & Cole, has been awarded the Delta Gold award 2013.
The winners were announced on 27 June in Barcelona at the ceremony of the Delta Industrial Design Awards, the longest running and most prestigious in Spain, held as part of the 3rd Fadfest within the context of the Barcelona Design Festival.
An international jury (Johanna Agerman Ross, Tomás Alonso, Valérie Bergeron, Joseph Foraker, Robert Punkenhofer, Viviana Narotzky and Mike Zancan) chose Santa & Cole’s HeadHat system for the 2013 Delta Gold, from a shortlist of 47 finalists, for its ‘good resolution, simplicity, honesty and flexibility in an LED lighting system.
HeadHat is a composite system of hanging lamps using shades (Hats) of differing sizes and materials that multiply the efficiency of an ingenious light capsule (Head). The first five models are made from ceramic and aluminium shades with simple shapes.
This system was developed by the Santa & Cole team, who are a group of industrial designers and engineers led by Nina Masó, an interior designer and the co-founder of Santa & Cole, alongside Javier Nieto Santa and her late husband Gabriel Ordeig Cole. Santa & Cole’s current design and product development team are David Marti, Claudia Rieradevall, Gabriel Gonzalez and Andreu Capdevila.
In addition to the Delta Gold 2013 (Barcelona, Spain), the lighting system HeadHat was also awarded the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2013 in Essen (Germany) in February of this year.
