Exterior luminaire recognized for outstanding design in annual awards

Montreal, QC, May 16, 2024 - Cyclone Lighting (, Cyclone Lighting (, an established leader in the manufacture of outdoor luminaires, is pleased to announce its Mochi luminaire has received a Red Dot Design Award for Product Design.

Dating back to 1955, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions. The Red Dot Label has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after marks of quality for good design. As many as 50 international experts from different specialist areas are invited to test, discuss, and assess each product individually, awarding aesthetically appealing, functional, smart, or innovative products.

Mochi’s nature-inspired silhouette departs from traditional dome styling, bringing a softness to urban settings while delivering exceptional lighting performance. Its thoughtful design extends to its operating mechanism: a seamlessly integrated cast aluminum push-button latch provides one-handed access to the driver for easy replacement. An innovative hinge also allows the luminaire to remain open for maintenance without needing an additional security system.

Mochi's advanced lighting system offers precise illumination well-suited for projects where safety is a priority, including city and residential streets, commercial buildings, transit, urban parks, waterfront pathways, or bike paths. Project designers can choose from more than 14 light distribution types, including backward optics. Additional versatility comes from the Orion light engine's orientable optics, which can be oriented by increments of 90. Designers can combine two distribution types within a single light engine.

Mochi will be celebrated, with all award winners, during the Red Dot Award Ceremony on June 24 in Essen, Germany.
