LAMP has announced its 2018 international lighting design winners. The awards were presented in Vancouver, honouring the best in established, emerging and student designers from around the globe. Two Canadians were among the winners.
“BALANCE was a clever subject and we were very impressed by the diversity of lights,” says Ingo Maurer. “LED is certainly a big improvement in our daily technical life, but it is very important not to miss the following element of light: The essence of light. Congratulations to the winners. Keep on going and think of the light that pleases its core and our souls!”

First place – Mito by by Tom Fereday and Rakumba Lighting of Melbourne, Australia
