Lighting Product Of The Year, Effect: Ayrton MagicDot-R

The top products of the past year are here once again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2015-2016 Products Of The Year

MagicDot-R is a member of Ayrton’s Radical product line and the first LED of its kind with a single optical collimator. It’s a little guy—“fun and unique,” says one judge—that packs a lot of punch and can really move. The fixture is based around a 60W RGBW multi-chip LED emitter paired with a 94 mm high-efficiency collimator. Another judge says, “The MagicDot-R puts a refreshing effect fixture into the designer’s palette. Its lightning fast movement, repeatable positioning, and full 360-degree rotation make this one of the most unique fixtures to have been brought to market in years. It opens the door to many great design ideas.” ayrton.eu or morpheuslights.com

Products of the year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the ninth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards on June 13 in New York.
