It’s time to turn your L A M P on! The Lighting Architecture Movement Project (L A M P) is preparing for its third annual international lighting design competition and is sending out a call for entries to designers worldwide to participate. The design event will be held this November in Vancouver and the deadline for entries is July 27, 2015. If you think you have a “bright” idea, be sure to check out the competition details on www.welovelamp.ca.
L A M P is offering participants the opportunity to exercise their talents for the chance to be part of a growing must-see exhibition that connects the local community with dynamic design. The competition challenges designers to approach their lamps with the guidance of a singular word. This year’s theme is Crystallize.
L A M P has announced that there will be three categories open for submissions, including student, emerging, and established designers. After reviewing all submissions, the esteemed panel of judges will make their decisions based on a set evaluation ranging from aesthetics, marketability, innovation, and unique interpretation of this year’s theme word.
The confirmed panellists for 2015 include: Nancy Bendtsen (Inform Interiors), Omer Arbel (Bocci Design), John Patkau (Patkau Architects), Tom Dixon, Michael Anastassiades, Falken Reynolds, and the team from ANDLIGHT: Lukas Peet, Caine Heintzman and Matt Davis.
To submit your lamp, keep up to date, or to inquire about sponsorship, please visit www.welovelamp.ca.
The Lighting Architecture Movement Project, run by founders Annika Hagen and Nicole Fox, is a lighting design competition showcasing light and form through the lens of architectural design. Founded in 2013, L A M P looks forward to growing into an internationally recognizable institution for creative minds to showcase their designs.
