SURREY — The Electron, invented by father-son team Jordan and Maurice Dery at Karice Enterprises in Surrey, is one of six finalists for the Lighting Design Awards, widely considered to be the “Oscars” of the lighting design world.

The Electron is one of six shortlisted nominees for the 40th annual awards in London, England on May 5.

The energy-efficient LED wall sconce has received global notoriety for its deceptively minimalistic style, which masks a freshly innovative and sophisticated luminaire that illuminates on both its inner and exterior rings.

“We couldn’t be more honoured to showcase Canadian design and manufacturing to the world,” said Maurice. “Honestly, when you’re going up against Europe’s best designers – the best of the best – it feels really good to achieve the recognition we have. This is a rare privilege for Canada to be at centre stage.”

The winner will be announced at a gala in London, England on May 5th.
