Celebrating its fifth annual lighting design competition, L A M P (Lighting Architecture Movement Project) has announced its 2018 international lighting design winners in Vancouver, Canada.

“BALANCE was a clever subject and we were impressed by the diversity of lights,” said Ingo Maurer. “LED is certainly a big improvement in our daily technical life, but it is important not to miss the essence of light. Congratulations to the winners. Keep going and think of the light that pleases its core and our souls!” This year’s first-place winners and runners-up in each category are:


First place: Mito by Tom Fereday and Rakumba Lighting from Melbourne, Australia

Runner-up: Boom by Stickbulb/RUX Studios from New York City, USA



First place: Highwire by Anony Studio from Toronto, ON, Canada

Runner-up: Bolla by Giulia Liverani for OliveLab from Turin, Italy



First place: Driftwood by Nathan Sui from Mississauga, ON, Canada

Runner-up: Arch by Noah Howells from Boone, North Carolina, USA


The first place student winner received a $500 Award & Professional Internship/Mentorship with ANDLIGHT, the emerging winner received the $1 000 Light Resource Award, and the established winner received the Inform Interiors $2,000 Grand Prize Award.


Call for entries

L A M P is preparing for its sixth annual international lighting design competition and is sending out a call for entries to designers worldwide to participate. The deadline to submit is January 31, 2019. 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 industry’s 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.
