The competition concept may be summed up in two words: Light and Space.
The competition invites young designers not only to design light fixtures, but to include them in an architectural setting. The theme is new light. Entrants will not be encouraged to use any particular style, form, materials or light sources.
Everything will be up to the designers imagination and interpretation. The settings in which the new light forms will be inserted and form the focus will be shops: points of sale for a wide variety of products, from fashion boutiques to jewellers, telephone retailers and bakeries.
The first prize in the professional category is 1.300 Euro; the first prize in the students category is 1.800 Euro.
The deadline for registration and submission of material is March 30 2007.
