Peachtree, Georgia USA -- Cooper Lighting, an industry leader committed to delivering innovative products and driving transformational technology in the lighting industry, has been honored with a Best of NeoConŽ Gold award for its family of ioŽ Tile Gen II LED luminaires. Earning top honors in the Decorative Lighting category of the 23rd Annual Best of NeoCon awards competition, these LED products add unique lighting colors to modern indoor spaces, offering architects and designers an array of creative design opportunities along with the ability to achieve greater light control and reduce energy consumption.
The Best of NeoConŽ competition, which honors new commercial interiors products, is sponsored by Contract Magazine, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., The International Interior Design Association (IIDA), The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and McMorrowReport.com.

Featuring Cooper Lighting's patented optical waveguide LED technology, the Tile Gen II is a luminous, clean, geometric form that can be surface-mounted, pendant-mounted or recessed into walls and ceilings.
