Eskom invites invites professionals, students and learners in the fields of electricity, electronic engineering, art and design, to design an eco-chic lamp that blends creative flair with clever functionality.
The goal of the competition is to demonstrate that efficient lighting technologies, such as discharge, fluorescent and LED technologies, can be used in very contemporary and attractive luminaires and lighting design systems intended for residential lighting.
Criteria include innovativeness, ingeniousness, creativeness, functionality, attractiveness, and efficiency.
The Competition includes three (3) categories:
- Residential Luminaire Design (Students)
- Innovative Energy Efficient Lighting Design (Professional)
- Most Promising Young Designer (Learners)
Several prizes will be awarded in each of the competition categories. One Special Award will be awarded to the Most Promising Designer (PDI).
The Eskom Energy Efficient Lighting Design Competition (EELDC) was founded in 1999. The key objective of this initiative is to introduce and entrench a culture of harmonious co-existence between design and energy efficiency in lighting.
