Electronics Design Group Wins “Best Dressed System” at Lutron Electronics Annual Excellence Awards The award presented for integration of a silent lighting system was EDG’s third Lutron Excellence Award
Piscataway, NJ-September 25, 2007-Electronics Design Group, a professional custom systems design and engineering contractor that specializes in the integration and installation of state-of-the-art electronics technology for home and business, was presented the “Best Dressed System” Award by Lutron Electronics at the annual Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo in Denver, CO.
EDG’s entry, “Inaudible Illumination,” was a custom designed lighting system integrated into a 25,000 sq. ft. Arts & Crafts style home. The client and designer’s main concerns were that the system be quiet and that the 40 feet of linear panels and equipment be seamlessly integrated into the existing conditions, such as complex circuitry, limited space and intricate décor elements. Through extensive planning and documentation, EDG worked with Lutron Electronics to design and install the noiseless, two-section, light dimming system that while highly functional, did not impact the home’s detailed interior. EDG experts were able to make a last minute addition of new technology, Lutron’s 4A dimming module, which aided in making the installation nearly noiseless. The winning entry was judged on the unique aspects of the project, challenges and their creative solutions, and unusual customer requests. Lutron Electronics awarded nine other titles to custom lighting installations of 2007.
This is EDG’s third Lutron Excellence Award. In 2006 Lutron awarded them the “Best Homeowner Documentation” and in 2004 EDG won the “Best Lighting and Shade Integration” Award. “It is a true honor to have an organization as prestigious as Lutron recognize us for our work,” says EDG President and Founder, Bob Gullo. “This installation was a huge project. The client was demanding and knew a lot about custom lighting. Our team pulled together to make it work in a space where there was no room for error. The final product is easily the best lighting installation we’ve ever done.”
