And the winners are...

We recently collaborated with Brunel University London on Project Zero: an ultra-thin lighting design challenge. More than 100 designs were submitted and we were blown away by the quality of the work received. When assessing each entry, we took into consideration the following criteria:

  1. Originality of design

  2. Practicality of design

  3. Quality of presentation of concept

  4. Does this concept address the key deliverables of the challenge

  5. Could the same result or better be achieved with a different light source

After much deliberation, we selected three wining designs. And the winners are…

HIGHLY COMMENDED

The number of designs that we can’t go without acknowledging is testimony to the creative talent of the up-and-coming designers that took part in the challenge. We collated a list of highly commended entries so that we could share with you some of the exceptional entries that were submitted. If this is what these students can come up with in just one week, then the future is bright for lighting design!
