A new generation of lighting design talent is emerging. It’s more driven, diverse, collaborative, curious, global, tech-savvy and passionate than ever. And it’s questioning how things are done.
Armed with the an unparalleled breadth of technology and able to instantly draw on unlimited inspiration, these millennials are raising the bar on the creativity and quality of projects across the world.
To celebrate forty years of the Lighting Design Awards, we’ll recognise this cohort. From 20 countries, we will name 40 young designers as representatives of this new generation. Some have been nominated by principals; others have received independent recognition in competitions and awards; and some have been selected by a panel of experts as ambassadors for their industry. All are outstanding young people with much to contribute.
Their mission is to take the craft forward in the twenty-first century, and to build on the work of the pioneers who created the profession and achieved recognition for it in previous decades.
Find out who’s in the 40 Under 40 at the Lighting Design Awards 2016 on Thursday 5 May.
