LUXI – LICHTWOCHE München 2018

By: German Lighting Magazine

Subject: Building Lighting


Information: 2018_04_LIWO_Luxi_Jurybewertungsleitlinie & 2018_04_LIWO_Luxi_Teilnahmebedingungen

Time: Registration at until 04. June 2018

Submission of works or deadline for submissions is August 31, 2018.

The award ceremony will take place on 02.11. in the German Theater in Munich.

LUXI – Der LICHT-Preis will again be presented this year as part of the 4th LICHTWOCHE München. Here, the journal LICHT distinguishes particularly innovative contributions from students, young designers and planners or courageous entrepreneurs.

They allow three categories:

  • Luminaire or lighting object
  • Lighting concept or lighting design
  • Light control and lighting technology

Excellent and rewarded with a cash prize are works on the subject of light, which are particularly innovative, which are designed to make life better for people or serve the scientific transfer in practice.

A look at the history shows that the LUXI can be a successful springboard especially for young people: One of the winners of 2017 (Martin Seidl, work lamp) exhibited this year at the Young Design Areal at Light + Building. The Ambright company, winners of the Innovation Award and exhibitors, have since received a lot of positive feedback and are working together with other new partners. Also for the company Anylamp from Regensburg, laureate Startup, there was a lot of media response and new contacts. Janis Necker, 2nd Prize Winner 2015, works today at a well-known Munich lighting design office. Even participants who did not receive an award but exhibited at the awards ceremony came into contact with numerous manufacturers. Lichtwoche München in particular offers itself as a network platform for young people and companies.

A strong media response in the specialist and regional press is certain.

Well, it’s worth it to join!
