Prende avvio la quinta edizione del concorso di lighting design e della mostra LAMP (Lighting Architecture Movement Project) che, quest'anno, ha evoluto il suo formato diventando un evento biennale per dare ai progettisti la possibilità di mettere a punto con maggiore precisione i progetti con cui parteciperanno al concorso in vista dell'esposizione.
Sin dal 2013, anno di istituzione della competizione, l'obiettivo è stato quello di introdurre un pubblico sempre più vasto al lighting design, promuovendo contemporaneamente i rapporti tra talenti emergenti e nuovi mercati.
Ogni anno il concorso chiede ai progettisti di cimentarsi con un nuovo tema individuato da una parola che dovranno concettualizzare e che, per il 2017, è "Balance".
Il concorso è aperto ad artisti, designer industriali e architetti e suddiviso in tre categorie: studenti, emergenti e affermati
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. Competition Finalists from around the world are showcased at the L A M P Opening Reception in Vancouver, BC.
Moving into our 5th year of the competition & exhibition, we have decided to extend the overall timeframe... We are very excited to announce that L A M P is evolving from our annual competition & event to a biannual format. This will provide designers time to fully execute their designs and prototypes for the entry deadline & exhibition.
Designers receive a thematic word to interpret in their own way and have nine months to conceptualize their design for the judging process. The 2017 theme is: Balance.
There are 3 categories: Established, Emerging and Student.
Emerging designers have been a practicing designer for less than three years and are not in school.
Established designers have had an established career for more than three years.
Students are currently in school for design.
