darc awards: A Celebration on the best International Lighting Design Products and Practices
darc awards is a unique concept utilising the reputation of mondo*arc and darc magazine as being a widely spread and respected lighting design publication in todays lighting world. The inaugural darc awards event was launched to critical acclaim and huge success in 2015 culminating in darc night, the awards celebration in London.
With a database of over 1,400 international lighting design practices – both interior designers and architects – and, in collaboration with creative consultants Light Collective, mondo*arc has created a unique opportunity to get every practice involved in the awards process.
The competition is open for the full lighting profession, so any lighting designer, lighting architect, interior designers or OEM manufacturer or collective can enter , but here’s the exciting bit – once the shortlist is chosen by an international jury of independent architectural lighting designers, each of the 1,300+ lighting design practices and their designers are invited to vote on their favourite projects via our specially developed darc awards website.
All the projects and the companies who have submitted their projects will be showcased on the official event website www.darcawards.com. The intenntion is that the website over time becomes a comprehensive online lighting design resource that can be used by designers and clients alike for lighting inspiration. There are also categories for products that follow the same philosphy resulting in a comprehensive online database of products.
