With the 2018 winners now announced, L A M P (Lighting Architecture Movement Project) is preparing for its sixth annual international lighting design competition and is sending out a call for entries to designers worldwide to participate. Submissions open October 1 and the deadline to submit is January 31, 2019.
In addition, L A M P is excited to announce its new partnership with Design Milk moving forward into the 2019 international lighting design competition.
“Design Milk is thrilled to partner with such an incredible competition that truly celebrates modern, innovative design,” says Jaime Derringer, Founder and Executive Editor of Design Milk. “We have admired L A M P for many years now and appreciate how dedicated they are to the community. We look forward to seeing the 2019 TEXTURE entries.”
L A M P aims to introduce a broader audience to lighting design while promoting and connecting emerging talents to new markets. Each year the competition challenges designers to approach their lighting fixtures with the guidance of a theme. The 2019 theme is TEXTURE. All submissions will be reviewed by some of the industries top professionals, and the finalists from each category will be displayed at L A M P’s annual exhibition during IDS Vancouver’s Offsite Programming.
The three categories open for submissions include 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 the theme word.
Over the years, L A M P’s judges have included: Ingo Maurer, Bec Brittain, Jaime Derringer (Design Milk), Michael Anastassiades; Tom Dixon; Niels Bendtsen (Bensen); Omer Arbel (Bocci); Jakub Zak (Patricia Urquiola Studio); Joana Bover (Bover); John Patkau (Patkau Architects); Rosie Li (Roll & Hill); and the team from ANDlight (Lukas Peet, Caine Heintzman and Matt Davis), to name a few.
