Winners announced in first Lux Awards Middle East 2016!

The lighting community in the UAE was celebrating last night as projects in the country dominated the first ever Lux Awards Middle East, with no fewer than seven lighting schemes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi scooping an iconic 'golden L' trophy. The night of triumph was sealed as Abu Dhabi's lighting expert Martin Valentine – who has helped drive low-energy lighting standards across the Middle East – was named Lux Person of the Year 2016.

‘I'd like to congratulate all of last night's winners,’ said chairman of the judges Ray Molony. ‘The standard of entries has been world-class, no doubt about it.  The scale and ambition of the projects is remarkable and I believe the lighting design community here has a talent and creativity to match the established hubs of London and New York, and these awards demonstrate that.  All the entrants deserve a lot of credit for getting this far as it’s been a huge task for the judges to whittle down the entrants and choose winners. The simple fact is that the bar in terms of quality in both product and lighting design keeps getting higher and higher.’

The winners were revealed at a glittering Lux Awards presentation ceremony at the specially constructed Lux Arena at LuxLive Middle East 2016 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centrel. 

As well as the project and innovation categories, three specialist awards – the Judges’ Special Technology Award, the Lux Award for Contribution to the Middle East Lighting Industry and the Lux Person of the Year 2016 – were announced.

The presentations event was followed by an exclusive networking wrap party in the Aloft Hotel where top lighting professionals, clients and developers rubbed shoulders and partied until the early hours.
