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.
