On May 11 2004, Carmanah's Model 601 solar-powered LED light was awarded Silver in the 2003 ADEX Awards.
Since 1994, the Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) is the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.
More than 500 companies submit thousands of innovative new products for the ADEX competition. An anonymous panel of professionals, representing a cross section of the design industry, conducts all voting. These judges are among the ablest in their respective areas of expertise, ensuring the ADEX Award represents the best product designs of the year in the opinion of those who themselves reside at the top of their specialty.
