Amongst the winners of the Delta'12 Awards, an international competition for best product design by the Spanish Design Association ADI-FAD, is the Lola street lamp by LaGranja for Metalco. The streetlight is made from aluminum and is fully recyclable as well as mercury-free due to the use of LEDs. To avoid vandalism such as graffiti-tags and stickers, the base of the lamp is textured.

The Spanish design studio explains, that unlike most street lights, Lola doesn't emit a blinding light. Instead, the light is first directed into the lamp's head and then reflected evenly towards the street:

Lola´s coated reflector collects the entire LEDs’ emission and directs the light to the central projector. This offers several advantages: the LED’s side emission does not get wasted, the light remains uniform, and does not blind or lose intensity, yielding high efficiency when illuminating the target.
