DesignWithLight is a student lighting design competition organized by the Philadelphia Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to raise awareness and understanding of the lighting design profession within the student community.
This year, students will be tasked with developing a custom tabletop luminaire to be displayed as a centerpiece at Illuminate Philadelphia – a day of lighting educational seminars and hands-on product demonstrations. Through this competition the goal is that the student become more aware of the interaction between light and materials and the effect that interaction has on the individual experience. This competition will help students explore various techniques in using light and materials to create a desired lighting effect and emotional response.
The winner’s center pieces will be displayed at Illuminate Philadelphia – a day of lighting seminars and hands-on product demonstration – at Franklin’s View on October 6th, 2022. Please email the committee chairs for more details.
