KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design wins IALD Award of Merit at the IALD Awards 2019

KSLD are delighted to celebrate the latest achievement for their Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber project. On behalf of the project team, Kevan Shaw received the IALD Award of Merit on 22nd May at the 2019 IALD Education Trust Benefit Dinner + 36th Annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards ceremony in Philadelphia, USA. KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design wishes to extend its congratulations to all who worked on this remarkable project.

Kevan Shaw said, “I am extremely proud to receive our first IALD Award of Merit for the Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber. We are of course also extremely proud of this project and the international recognition it has received for excellence in lighting design.”.

The judges called the bespoke LED lights a “technically brilliant solution” to the challenge – how to light a room that functions effectively as a TV studio for parliamentarians and visiting guests, and an accessible public space.

The project was judged as a winner in a field of more than 200 entries and has been formerly recognised at awards ceremonies across the globe. Significantly in 2018, the project was winner of the First Prize for Lighting Design at the Codega Awards; Highly Commended in the Office, Education and Healthcare Lighting Project of the Year category at the Lux Awards; Commended in the Workplace category at the Lighting Design Awards and Commended in the Lighting category at the Scottish Design Awards.

Kevan was also speaker at LIGHTFAIR International 2019, 23rd May, on the subject of ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Architect as Lighting Designer in the 1900s’ – The talk showed specific examples of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s lighting design and illustrated from research undertaken, the working methods of the period. Kevan has travelled in Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s footsteps twice; to recreate the original lighting in the construction of his competition winning House for an Art Lover and also in the restoration of the fire damaged Glasgow School of Art.

KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design goes from strength to strength as they also celebrate Associate Director Natalie Redford’s recent recognition as one of Lighting Magazine’s 40under40 class of 2019, announced at the Lighting Design Awards 2019. KSLD’s Icelandic colleagues’ beautiful project, The Lava Tunnel, Raufarholshelir, Iceland was also Highly Commended in the Public Realm and Landscape Project of the Year category at the same ceremony in London on 16th May.
