Best of NeoCon® Silver Winner: Trace

Luxo’s Trace LED task light was honored with the Best of NeoCon® Silver award for Lighting: Task/Desk Top at the NeoCon World’s Trade Fair 2016.

Now in its 27th year, Best of NeoCon® recognizes outstanding new products across 43 categories within commercial interiors.  423 products were reviewed by 43 interior designers, architects, and facilities management professionals and awards were presented by Contract magazine. 


Designed by Swedish designers Oskar Daniel and Emil Marklund, Trace is Luxo’s new task light with great personality.  It is compact, with excellent light output and minimalistic design.  A slim arm carries a distinct softened square lamp head.  The task light changes shape and expression when seen from different angles.


Despite its modest size, Trace has a definite presence and posture that makes it suitable for a wide variety of office environments.  The combination of simple lines and an elegantly shaped lamp head gives it a distinct personality.


Excellent ergonomics

Trace offers excellent ergonomics in the office workspace.  The light output is asymmetric, distributing the light evenly at an angle across the working area.  This minimizes reflection, and allows Trace to be placed well to the side of the workspace.  The flexibility of the arm and lamp head provide added flexibility so the user can easily place the light exactly where it is needed.

Functionality and aesthetics

Trace features a dimmable 6 Watt LED module.  The on/off switch, which also functions as a dimmer, is positioned prominently at the top of the lamp head.  This attractive combination of aesthetics and functionality not only adds to the design of the product, but also allows the lamp to be easily operated with only one hand.

Trace also features automatic shut-off for added energy savings.  A built-in timer automatically turns the light off after 4 or 9 hours.


A version of Trace features USB charging.  The charger is seamlessly integrated into the table base for ease of use and access.


Colorful decor rings can be added, and are interchangeable, to give the task light a playful expression.  Decor rings are available in three rich colors: Sweet fuchsia, Aqua marine, and Street light orange.  Custom colors are available upon request.
