Lux Awards 2019 Shortlisted projects

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.
