One of the largest contemporary lighting showrooms in North America, Lightology, has launched an exciting new design competition, named Design With Light 2010, open to seasoned and novice designers alike.
The retailer is challenging design professionals, students, artists and design lovers to submit an original design concept ranging from pure art to architectural, for a chance to win a $2,000 Lightology gift card, a feature in i4design magazine, and recognition from the design community at an exclusive in-store event.
As part of the rules, all design concepts must incorporate at least 1 foot of Lightology’s LED Soft Strip, a flexible LED light strip that comes in white or color-changing RGB.
“The LED Soft Strip is extremely versatile and is meant to be used creatively,” says Lightology owner Greg Kay. “I am looking forward to seeing the unique and innovative ideas our entrants come up with.”
The deadline for sketch submissions is 11:59 a.m. on June 30, 2010. A judging panel — comprised of Richard Wright of Wright Auction House, i4design Publisher Mitchell Obstfeld and Chicago lighting designer David Parker — will select 10 to 15 sketches and those finalists will be given LED Soft Strips to create their designs. The judging panel will also select the grand prize winner.
The top designs will be on display in the Lightology showroom and online for public viewing and voting to select a “People’s Choice” winner, who will receive a $1,000 Lightology gift card.
