SAPPHIRE AWARDS FINALISTS

Illumineer of the Year

Tom Warton and George Mieling, co-founders, Scott Yu, Chief Designer, Vode Lighting — Rail Lighting System Optics
Linear lighting design and manufacturing company Vode Lighting has developed a suite of LED optics for its rail fixtures that enable lighting designers to achieve increased beam control and reduced glare and pixilation in SSL projects. The ability to customize the company’s linear SSL offerings with the optics selections ensures beams are placed where needed and desired, at any angle, and in a variety of shapes.
Tanuj Mohan, chief technology officer and co-founder, Enlighted — Enlighted Smart Lighting Systems
While programming alone, Tanuj Mohan recognized that building resources were wasting energy and dedicated himself to the task of developing network management solutions that could reduce unnecessary demands on building infrastructure. With his company, Enlighted, and its intelligent sensor- and mesh-based system that leverages the Internet of Things (IoT), Mohan has delivered on his objective to provide a smart building management strategy — supported through the ubiquitous lighting system.
Shuji Nakamura, chief technology officer and co-founder; James Raring, general manager and co-founder; Eric Goutain, product engineering director (not shown); Troy Trottier, material science consultant; Paul Rudy, senior vice president and co-founder, SoraaLaser — LaserLight Module
SoraaLaser has engineered the LaserLight Fiber Module to deliver up to 500 lm from an ultrasmall spot to generate a luminance of 1k cd/mm2 — 100x that of LED technology, the company claims. Light is delivered via LaserLight Fiber from a blue laser diode to a remote phosphor module for broad-spectrum white output. The technology is expected to enable novel lighting effects especially in compact SSL designs. (SoraaLaser nominees are shown clockwise from top left.)
