One of the finalists with her entry for Eskom’s 2010 eta Awards. Entries from the finalists in Eskom’s 2010 Energy Efficient Lighting Design Competition are on display at Radiant’s Wynberg, Johannesburg showroom until 31 October.

The finalists have been chosen from a record 567 entries received this year. The lighting designs feature natural fibres and beads through to high-tech lamps using wire, metal, granite and glass. The wide ranging submissions will give designers, suppliers, architects and lighting engineers insight into the cutting edge of contemporary energy-efficient lighting design.

The criteria on which the entries were evaluated include: aesthetics, innovation and uniqueness of design; cost-effectiveness, ease of practical implementation, marketing potential and the environmental friendliness of the design. All designs incorporate energy-efficient discharge, CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) or LED (light emitting diode) technologies.

Eskom will announce the winners at the eta awards ceremony to be held in Johannesburg on 4 November 2010.
