Entries open for Casambi Awards 2023

16th February 2023

(Worldwide) – The annual Casambi Awards celebrate the many innovative ways in which architectural lighting projects and products have deployed Casambi technology to life-enhancing effect.

Casambi’s technology provides lighting designers and manufacturers with the ability to wirelessly link devices together enabling the creation of customizable smart lighting networks. To date, more than four million Casambi Ready products have been sold worldwide. The technology has been specified in over 150,000 projects, spanning every application from small high-end residential to 10,000+ node industrial spaces.

The two special award categories, adjudicated by this year’s judges, are Best Product and Best Project. The jury is looking for exemplars of great lighting design and products built on big ideas, whether that’s marking a sustainable step forward, taking lighting design in a totally new direction, or going the distance to deliver intelligent, “automagic” lighting control.

Last year, the award for Best Project went to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens for its wireless lighting system. Ordered by the Hellenic Olympic Committee to protect the sacred building while significantly enhancing the venue’s sustainability claims, it comprises more than 3,600 LED bulbs, and features Casambi-enabled DT8 DALI Tunable White with an Electron Elegant Max custom lighting projection system. Luminaire manufacturer, Coelux, won Best Product with CoeLux HT25 Mini, an artificial skylight that introduces chromatic tuneability – reproducing the scenarios, colour, and light intensity of the sky across a clear day, from sunrise to sunset.

This year’s winning entries will hit the smarter, safer, greener trifecta yet also bring a touch of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the lighting game. It’s free to enter and the submission deadline is March 03, 2023. Winners will be announced at the Casambi Summit in April.

Adjudicated every year by a top-class international jury, the 2023 panel boasts a great breadth of expertise within the architecture and lighting professions with each member excelling in their field: Chris Lepine from Zaha Hadid Architects, Sebastian Aristotelis of SAGA Space Architects, Francesco Funari from Flos, Light Lab principal, Yah Li Toh, Cameron Girgus of Diode LED, and Aileen Herpell, co-founder of Aimotion.

Entering the Casambi Awards is a great opportunity to get your work in front of this fantastic panel, receive exposure for your innovations and connect with the 1000+ attendees expected at the Casambi Summit this spring. The prize also includes a dedicated feature in arc magazine, and the firm will include a Casambi demo cube set in the winners’ booty bags.
