Nuvem Wins the 2020 Golden A’ Design Award

Nuvem, the luminous modular system designed by Portuguese architect Miguel Arruda in collaboration with Slamp, has been presented with the 2020 Golden A’ Design Award in the Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design category. This prestigious award is given to only three percent of the products already recognised for their exemplary design.

The 2019 Salone del Mobile set the stage for Nuvem’s international launch, showcasing the lighting brand and architect’s artistry in creating not just a light but a modular ceiling of sorts. The design is the result of the symbology Arruda applied to a sculpture in 1980, masterfully transformed by Slamp’s R&D team. Comprising folded and jointed meter-long hexagonal sections, this masterpiece offers endless composition possibilities as the components can be connected infinitely. Described as a ‘ceiling’ or ‘floating landscape’, Nuvem is illuminated by bi-directional GU10 spotlights. This dramatic luminaire can also be installed vertically down a wall.

‘We didn’t make a lamp, we made a ceiling.’
