Student Scholarship Design Competition 2014-2015

The details for this year's Student Scholarship Design Competition have been finalized.

The Theme: MOTION

Purpose/Challenge:

 To design an electric powered luminaire that incorporates motion as a theme. Motion may be expressed as actual moving parts of the fixture housing. the light source. or the optics. It may invoke the idea of motion with no moving parts. If the fixture moves as a whole. it must do so in a self-controlled. self-contained manner. Dimming. flashing. and color changing are thought of as movement with respect to light. but this theme pays respect to physical motion. The light source must be powered by electricity. There is no restriction on lamp type. wattage or voltage. The objective is to design an aesthetically pleasing and functional luminaire.

Subject of Design:

The luminaire should be able to be used in an architectural space. It should be a single fixture, not a large or complex installation. The mounting can range from ceiling mount, recessed, pendant, wall mount or be a portable fixture.

All submissions will be judged by a multidisciplinary panel of experts in the fields of lighting design, luminaire design, architecture and/or engineering and manufacturing/marketing.
