SHADE is an international lighting design competition open to all.
Often absent in lighting considerations is a critical evaluation of the taxonomy of form and the act of conveying and animating illumination. SHADE seeks a purposeful integration of lighting and space. Both as object and effect, the fixture performs as a catalyst for re-imagining the potentials of the spaces we inhabit. To this end, a range of explorations that extend the breadths of the light-form-space interaction from the spectacle to the nuanced, the dramatic to the banal and superfluous, are encouraged.
