Haute Lumière Light Competition 2014

Join the debate on light. Transform a white steel shipping container (12m x 2.3m x 2.3m) into a magical and intriguing space through an imaginative application of light.

Think about the qualities of light and what makes it visible; use them, manipulate them, even reveal them. Explore the remarkable inherent opportunities in discovering spatial expression that LED sources offer.

The award is open to designers, students and professionals. The design must be original and created specifically for this competition. Five designers will be selected to take part in the second stage, a one-day lighting workshop. The winning design will be constructed to scale, and its author will participate in the intensive five-day lighting workshop in Alingsas, Sweden.

For a registration form and full brief, or to submit any questions you have, email info@visi.co.za. The closing date for registration is 1 July, and submission of entries noon 4 July.
