Designed to celebrate and reward both creativity and sustainability in lighting, the Lux Awards will take place from 19:00 on the final day on the show, Thursday 14th November at the new location of The Hilton, Park Lane in London. The Lux Awards recognise clients and end users that have used lighting in exceptional ways to improve their lit environment, reduce energy and achieve business objectives. This year’s shortlists include…

 

Hospitality, Leisure and Faith Project of the Year

Illuminate, London

Sutton Vane Associates

Recognised for their creativity, innovation and commitment to sustainable solutions, Sutton Vane Associates responded to Illuminate’s brief of a dedicated, future-proofed events space that would meet all manners of event requirements while being aesthetically sleek and customisable. The grid lighting system installed by SVA in Level 4 and halo lights in Level 5 have been designed to be controlled as a whole or individually, with each line of the grid and each halo having the option of a standalone colour and brightness.

SVA also developed a hybrid system combining DMX lighting control with Bluetooth LE buttons. All lighting systems can also be controlled via an intuitive app for an additional cost when hiring Illuminate, which allows the in-house production team to easily customise and adjust every aspect of the lighting in the space for their needs.

Office, Education and Healthcare Lighting Project of the Year

Värde Partners Office, London

Susan Lake Lighting Design

Susan Lake Lighting Design worked with interior architects KKS Strategy to create a lighting design scheme for the London office of Värde Partners. Being an international company, Värde require video conferencing facilities in all the meeting rooms. Although it was necessary to provide light to tables and even illumination to faces, it was essential that members of a video conference could see to work and would not be seen on the cameras in shadow or silhouette. To achieve this objective, Susan Lake Lighting Design used a combination of light sources that produce the effect of layering the lighting. The meeting rooms have also been transformed with a unique ceiling feature which washes light around the edges of the pale timber slat ceiling perimeters.

In the reception, Susan Lake Lighting Design created a sense of drama and understated elegance by turning the main focal point of the space, the reception desk, into a spectacular visionary by creating a “floating” effect by concealing linear LED in the top element of the desk.

Outdoor Lighting Project of the Year

Kimpton Fitzroy, London

Lighting Design International

The Kimpton Fitzroy is a landmark Grade-II listed building. The striking grandeur of the terracotta facades and immaculate detailing required a restrained lighting design, respecting the building’s illustrious history.

Lighting Design International were tasked with forming a strategy to lighting the exterior of the building without overcomplicating an already busy façade and ensuring the lighting effects didn’t merge together. The key to the success of the scheme was balancing the intensity of each lighting effect. Senior Designer on the project, Ben Ferris, repeated general lighting effects at high-level, collectively creating linear compositions of light across each level, framing each façade and outlining the architectural form of the building with areas of intrigue created at street level for guests.

The festival will be made up of four strands with their sessions split over the two days: Emergency Lighting, Smart Lighting, Workplace and the Lightspace Festival, focusing on lighting in architecture.

In addition to the headline acts, the festival will also offer sponsored keynote presentations as well as case studies and interactive learning.

LuxLive 2020 postponed until November 2021

July 8th, 2020 | Latest News | 0 Comments

Today, 8th July, Clarion Events, owner of Revo Media, announced that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on large scale events, that the LuxLive 2020 trade exhibition will be postponed until November 2021.

In the absence of clear indication from the Government on the timeline for a return to large scale exhibitions, the UK has seen a continual postponing and cancelling of trade shows across all sectors.

The organisers of LuxLive believe that even if a green light is provided to run trade shows this year, there is not enough time remaining to deliver the high quality event that the industry expects and deserves.

However, the organisers are pleased to announce that in the absence of a physical LuxLive trade event, it is launching two exciting new digital events, scheduled to take place in September and November.

Taking place on September 22nd will be a special LuxLive Digital Kicker Conference on the timely and urgent topic of UV-C lighting and its role in helping building managers ensure the highest levels of safety and wellbeing.

Taking place during the original LuxLive dates of 11th and 12th November will be the LuxLive Digital Festival, representing the most ambitious and comprehensive digital education programme ever seen in the industry.

The festival will have a central theme of Health and Wellbeing.

Stressing that the lighting industry has a huge opportunity to be seen as a major facilitator of health and wellbeing to communities and societies, the organisers of the LuxLive Digital Festival have announced four strands to the event – Emergency Lighting, Smart Lighting, Workplace and the Lightspace Festival, focusing on lighting in architecture.

Each strand will take centre stage at certain times throughout the two-day festival and will deliver compelling educational headline content.

In addition to the headline acts, the festival will also offer sponsored keynote presentations as well as case studies and interactive learning.

The event will also allow one-to-one meeting facilities, roundtable discussions, video presentations, live polling and Q&A sessions throughout.

The popular Lux Awards will close the festival as it makes its digital debut edition in the award’s celebrated history.

James Samuel, Portfolio Director, Clarion Events stated: “It is obviously disappointing that running LuxLive in it physical state will not be possible this year.

Having seen so many events in the sector cancelled or postponed there was a real sense of excitement about bringing the industry together in November.

Unfortunately the Government’s current position where no restart date has been given to large events means that running the physical event is not going to be possible.

However, in preparation for this scenario the team has been working hard to ensure that the industry can still come together.

I am delighted that LuxLive will still bring the great and the good of the lighting industry to share, connect, learn and motivate each other through the LuxLive Digital Festival in November and prior to that via the very topical LuxLive Digital Kicker conference on UV-C Lighting.”

On the announcement of the event’s themes, Samuel added: “The topic of health and wellbeing is so important now more so than ever.

I am really looking forward to sharing with the industry our headline speakers, and other compelling initiatives that will allow the LuxLive Digital Festival to play a significant part in the lighting industry calendar.

In addition, I cannot think of a better way to finish the festival with the iconic Lux Awards where the industry can take time to celebrate outstanding achievement in what has been a very challenging year.

LuxLive will be different this year but what remains is our commitment to provide unparalleled learning, discovery and connections.

We invite everyone to be part of our digital gathering to really promote how the lighting industry will take the lead in providing health, wellbeing and safety to our communities and societies at large.”
