A NEW competition for young designers focusing on lighting in the urban environment has been launched by Signify.
The initial year’s outing of the Community Lighting for the Urban Environment is focusing on ‘Lighting and urban disruption’.
The company – formally Philips LIghting – wants entrants to think about how light can make a change.
‘We are all familiar with emergency lighting in buildings but what more can lighting do?’ asks Signify.
‘Conflict in cities, breakdowns in communication and environmental change can make us feel vulnerable but we are never entirely powerless.
‘Could lighting design help prevent disruption, avoid disorientation, could it aid managing the situation?
‘How could light enable people to deal with a crisis better? What more can light do in these challenging times?’
CLUE is an international competition open to students and young professionals.
Entrants should have with fewer than years in their profession.
The intention is to develop innovative lighting concepts for both interior and exterior applications. There are also some high value cash prizes for the winners.
