Gold medal for the brand LED Linear


Berlin – Yesterday evening, 29th June 2017, the winners of this year’s German Brand Award were honoured at a festive gala held in the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin. LED Linear™ was featured among the evening’s winners. The manufacturer of innovative linear lighting solutions was awarded gold in the German Brand Award category of ‘Industry Excellence in Branding – Lighting’ and winner in the category ‘Excellence in Brand Strategy, Management and Creation – Brand Strategy’.


‘LED Linear™ has succeeded in clearly positioning itself with a relatively interchangeable product. The secret to their success is an extraordinary product portfolio in which the main element, a modular component system, enables more than 20 million lighting solutions. This incredible diversity gives lighting planners and architects limitless freedom to do anything they want. And LED Linear™ succeeds in conveying this freedom in an exciting, extremely aesthetic manner, whether as inspiring print advertisements that impressively show what the products can do, on the Web or at a trade show stand, where the brand presents itself for a hands-on experience’, explained the jury. The LED Linear™ brand got the highest award "GOLD" in the category "Industry Excellence in Branding - Lighting". In the category "Excellence in Brand Strategy, Management and Creation - Brand Strategy" the Winner-Label was awarded for the concept "Customer orientation without limits”.
