OKALUX: Winning Projects

• May 26, 2012

Two new awards confirm: The insulating glass producer OKALUX is a much sought after and competent partner when it comes to developing modern and complex insulating glass and integrating it in exciting projects.

In the ‘Cité de l’Océan et du Surf’ designed by Steven Holl Architects, functional glass from OKALUX supports the extraordinary atmosphere. The museum with its unconventional and dynamic configuration was nominated as the winner by more than 65,000 readers of the online platform ArchDaily in the BUILDING OF THE YEAR AWARD 2011. The translucent shell of the museum consists for the most part of glass with the capillary insert KAPILUX from OKALUX. The glass diffuses the daylight deeply and evenly into the underground rooms while affording very good sun and glare protection.

The insulating glass producer from Marktheidenfeld is also a convincing partner in the development of new product ideas. The Lightpanel iso from the designpanel company was distinguished with the iF material design award gold 2012. OKALUX was responsible for the embedment of innovative LED light technology in the glass. The element impressed the jury with its successful symbiosis of function and design. Lightpanel iso was given a high score for sustainability and energy efficiency.
