Lighting company ES-SYSTEM can sum up 2018 with one word: success. Prestigious awards, providing lighting equipment to projects worth millions globally and participating in the biggest trade fairs has defined ES-SYSTEM's activity throughout the year.
ES-SYSTEM is a pioneer in developing luminaires with 100% LED technology, which are manufactured in two production facilities located in Lesser Poland and Masuria. The ES-SYSTEM NT plant in Dobczyce was recently invested in and now inlcudes an advanced electronics production line. A fourth production line will be built there next year to meet increasing LED lighting sales.
"Continuous development motivates us to take further action to keep searching for better solutions, and to expand our product offering, technological tools and facilities," says Rafal Gawrylak, president of the company.
The company's solutions used in the WHY system also placed it among the 20 most innovative products at Light + Building and the top ten must-see innovations at LuxLive in London, and the product even received a special mention from the jury of the Lux Awards 2018 for Commended Interior Luminaire of the Year.
CIRCADIAN technology was also recognised as a top product by the Eurocres ActiveOfficeAWARD, which honours outstanding solutions that encourage physical activity in the workplace. An expert jury evaluates innovative and creative products, and then chooses the best each year. The award was presented along with a certificate for CIRCADIAN technology, using the example of the OPPOSITE CIRCADIAN lighting system. The LUNA system, meanwhile, played a major role in shopping centre lighting designed by ECE Projektmanagement and lighting designer Tobias Link. The Löhr Center in Koblenz, where the company's LUNA luminaires are used, came third in the darc awards/decorative's (a competition organised by darc magazine) Best Use of Decorative Lighting in a Retail Project category.
ES-SYSTEM's first international industry event was March's Light + Building. In May, ES-SYSTEM was the only Polish company to attend ARCHITECT@WORK GERMANY in Wiesbaden after impressing the jury with the OPPOSITE CIRCADIAN lighting system. After this, the company received an invitation to attend ARCHITECT@WORK FRANCE in Nantes.
'Let's light up the Darc Room' invited visitors to ES-SYSTEM's stand at Darc Room in London. ES-SYSTEM then attended Light Middle East 2018 in Dubai alongside its strategic partner Cinmar in September.
This year, the Professional Lighting Design Convention was held in Singapore for the first time, giving ES-SYSTEM the chance to present its products to a new audience. And, last but not least, LuxLive followed in November, marking one of the most important events for the company, as its WHY system was up for a Lux Award in the Interior Luminaire of the Year category.
At all these events, ES-SYSTEM showcased its most advanced equipment, including products featuring CIRCADIAN technology - which employs the idea of humancentric lighting - and Intelligent Control Systems, a solution that allows active lighting management.
ES-SYSTEM is continuously introducing new products to the market like FX Line, an elegant linear lighting system that lets users create captivating lighting arrangements in any interior. Its modern design and simple construction make it ideal for general and decorative lighting purposes. Another key addition to the company's portfolio was the GECO downlight, a configurable luminaire for general and decorative lighting. ES-SYSTEM has also developed Intelligent Lighting Control Systems, which allows active lighting management. These products promote flexibility, meeting the needs of users while keeping pace with the digital revolution, especially the internet of things.
In April 2017, the company created the London-based subsidiary ES-SYSTEM LIGHTING UK, which will act as a trading representative in the UK market.
