Gioia Equilibrio: A kinetic Masterpiece recognized by Good Design Awards

Occhio, a German manufacturer of luxurious lighting design, has recently been honoured with the prestigious Gold Winner Good Design Award in Australia for its revolutionary Gioia Equilibrio product. With this series, Occhio has opened up completely new horizons in the field of lighting design and has once again written design history.

The synthesis of design and innovation is as extraordinary as the joy of moving the luminaires smoothly, directing the light with simple gestures and making the adjustments one desires - a magical experience.
The Gioia Equilibrio is a kinetic sculpture created to grace the desks of executives or sophisticated office spaces in our homes. Its sculptural design speaks for itself, each new position enriches a never-ending sequence of exciting forms.

The exquisite, customizable materials and signature "cut" make the distinctive luminaire head an unmistakable member of the iconic Mito series.

The head of Gioia Equilibrio dances on its body, fully free to move with no restriction. The entire luminaire can be rotated in every direction and freely moved upwards and downwards, ensuring that the light always shines exactly where it's needed. The head always remains horizontal. The complex mechanism behind this intriguing dynamic remains hidden, with no screws and no cables visible. This luminaire is a mechanical masterpiece.

A simple hand movement right at the head of the luminaire is all that's needed to intuitively switch on or dim Gioia's powerful light or to direct the light up or down. A gesture is all that's required to adjust the light color - from a warm color temperature similar to an incandescent bulb to a cool, stimulating light for working.

The "focus light" function lets you focus the light from Gioia on a specific area - ideal for relaxed reading or working in the evening. Thanks to the Bluetooth control feature Occhio air, you can control your luminaire by app and integrate lighting scenes into your room.

The Occhio brand stands for a completely new culture of light. With its holistic philosophy combined with award-winning design, highest quality of light, and unique "joy of use," Occhio has achieved an absolutely unique market position. Founded in 1999 by designer and entrepreneur Axel Meise, the company started with an idea that was as simple as it was revolutionary: to create a lighting system that is consistent in design and quality of light and that offers the optimal solution for every situation - thus allowing people to become the lighting designers of their living space. The unique product portfolio of Occhio, thought out down to the last detail, makes it possible to design entire buildings with light with the highest quality - whether in the private or commercial sector.

Today, Occhio is one of the most innovative and fastest-growing companies and has developed from a German design icon to the market leader in Europe and an international brand in the luxury segment.

The Gold Winner Good Design award for the Gioia Equilibrio is a testament to Occhio's commitment to designing and manufacturing high-quality lighting solutions that meet the needs of today's consumers and provide a perfect experience of light.
