Exciting changes in store for the 2017/2018 LAMP lighting design competition.
The Lighting Architecture Movement Project (LAMP) has always placed a particular emphasis on motionand now it's time for the competition to move forward. Along with announcing the 2017 theme (more on this below), LAMP founders Annika Hagen and Nicole Fox have also revealed that the competition will be held biannually.It's a decision Hagen and Fox say will provide competitors with more time to fully develop their prototypes. We believe the caliber of work presented will improve with the additional time and enable designers to execute their vision with more clarity.This year, Established, Emerging and Student designers from around the world have been asked to gather inspiration from the word Balance, interpreting and transforming this idea into a beautifully crafted chandelier, pendant, floor lamp or other lighting fixture. We choose themes that are relatable on more than one level and it is always exciting to see how the designers interpret , says the LAMP co-founders.Balance is a very important subject today. You may not be able to explain why you enjoy an environment, but we always know when we feel a space is , they say. The right type of lighting can make or break a space.Submissions for the 2017/2018 competition open June 1, at which time LAMP will also be releasing a list of prizes and judges. Past competitors have been evaluated by a group of international and local superstars including Tom Dixon, Joana Bover, Falken Reynolds and Nancy Bendtsen of Inform Interiors.Finalists work will be on display at the LAMP exhibition in 2018and might even appear in the pages of WL (like Loom Lighting's Diaphanous pendant). don't want to wait? Take a peek at the winning work from the 2016 (“Cosmic”) and 2015 (“Crystallize”) competitions.For more information, competition guidelines and event schedule visit welovelamp.ca.
