New York, NY (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
Blackfire®, makers of the revolutionary Clamplight, introduced the Clamplight MINI at the 2011 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. Incorporating clamping and pivot head features found in the rest of the line, MINI brings compact size and extreme versatility like no other flashlight in the world. Clip to a hat, laptop, tackle box, backpack, auto sun visor, or clipboard Clamplight MINI frees up two hands to play or work. The LED head pivots in any direction to get light where you need it. And oh yes – it floats. Managing Director of the company, Bruce Ancona, says, “Combine all that innovation with an impulse price point and it truly stands out from the countless undifferentiated small LED lights that every retailer has and the consumers have too many of.” The response to MINI from retailers that have pre-viewed the light has been overwhelming.
Clamplight MINI joins Clamplight and Clamplight Junior in the line hitting different price points and different user needs. The innovation inherent in the Clamplight line was recognized earlier this year by being awarded the prestigious 2010 GOOD DESIGN™ Award. The competition, sponsored by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, is the oldest and world’s most recognized program for design excellence. This is the second major design award for Clamplight this year having won earlier an IDEA international design award co-sponsored by Fast Company and the Industrial Design Society of America. Clamplight was chosen by a jury of global design leaders, in a highly competitive program, with a record number of entries from over 48 different countries. In June 2011 The Chicago Athenaeum will mount an exhibition of the winners in Chicago.
