SORAA [1] just took home a 2013 Red Dot Product Design Award [2] with their Vivid LED MR16 [3] – which is the world’s first full visible spectrum bulb! The California-based company is the world’s leader in gallium-nitride on gallium-nitride (GaN on GaN™ [4]) LED [5] technology, and their Vivid LED was honored for its design innovation, functionality and energy efficiency.

Whereas some LED [6] lamps utilize multiple light sources that must be kept cool to generate enough light, SORAA’s Vivid LED uses a single small super-bright LED. This is possible because of the company’s patented GaN on GaN technology [4], which delivers superior light quality within an aesthetically pleasing bulb. In addition to producing up to ten times the light per unit area and cutting energy use by 75% compared to halogen lamps, SORAA’s Vivid LED MR16 lasts a whopping 25,000 hours. Brilliant!
