Conference Themes:

2. Éclat Competition

We have designed an invitation lighting competition. Four teams of lighting designers will be invited to explore a site with specific challenges identified. The teams will dream up their best designs to address the challenge noted and the space. One of the four teams will be selected for implementation. The winning project will be installed onsite and available for viewing.

The four competitors will form an expert panel and be invited to present their design approaches to the challenge presented.

Attendees will be afforded the opportunity to view and visit the winning design.

In the event we are not able to gather in person for viewing, arrangements will be made for live streaming the demonstration projects.

3. Éclat Demonstrations

Select teams of architects, designers and planners will be matched up with lighting suppliers. These teams will be given an area, element, aspect or subject material to find a design solution for. The design solutions will then be implemented onsite and available for viewing.

In the event we are not able to gather in person for viewing, arrangements will be made for live streaming the demonstration projects.
