Canadians among lighting design winners at L A M P competition

The gala event honours the best in established, emerging and student designers from around the globe and kicks off the Offsite Programming for IDS Vancouver.

“BALANCE was a clever subject and we were very impressed by the diversity of lights,” says Ingo Maurer. “LED is certainly a big improvement in our daily technical life, but it is very important not to miss the following element of light: The essence of light. Congratulations to the winners. Keep on going and think of the light that pleases its core and our souls!”
