Panasonic's LED Light Bulb Wins IDEA Gold Award in the U.S.
Osaka, Japan - Panasonic Corporation announces that they have won the Gold Award in the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) sponsored International Design Excellence Awards 2012 (IDEA 2012) for the 20W LED lamp Clear Type (Model for markets outside Japan: LDAHV4L27SCG, Model for the Japanese market: LDA4L/C)*1.
The Gold-winning LED lamp Clear Type provides sparkling light, just like a clear incandescent light bulb. Using Panasonic's proprietary light emission and diffusion technologies, this LED light bulb has achieved virtually the same size, shape, light source position, light color, brightness and light distribution as clear incandescent light bulbs commonly used worldwide. Its similarity to a conventional clear bulb in terms of its shape and quality of light makes users feel comfortable with it in their homes, encouraging consumers to replace conventional bulbs with long-life energy-saving LED bulbs. Therefore, it is expected to contribute greatly to global energy-saving efforts.
The LED lamp Clear Type has also obtained Gold Awards at the 2011 Good Design Award in Japan and the 2012 iF Product Design Award in Germany, sweeping Gold awards at three competitive design contests in the U.S., Germany and Japan. The international acclaim received by the bulb also includes the 2012 Universal Design Award in Germany and the 2012 red dot design award also in Germany.
