Archello Awards 2023 has revealed its winning products. For each of the 17 categories, one product was awarded by jury vote, and one product was awarded by public vote. As the overall Building Product of the Year award winner, the jury has selected Koinè designed by Mandalaki Studio for Luceplan.
The name Koinè draws from the Greek term for 'common' or 'shared' and is the title of a line of suspension lamps that refers to the product's versatile shape. The fixture appears as a floating disc: it is a product with an effect as crisp as its form. It consists of an ultra-thin conical visor suspended from a fine cable. This hat tops a custom-designed mineral lens which is applied to the light source to achieve a wide and homogeneous light throw that yields a precise shadow without blur. Koinè is produced in three diameters of 37, 55 and 110 centimeters and with visors in black, white, red or blue.
