Light Middle East Awards Glitter

A glittering gala awards dinner provided a fitting finale to three days of busy networking at Light Middle East 2015, which concluded in Dubai on October 8, 2015.

Box Park and Souk Al Manzil in Dubai, along with Qatar’s Banana Island Resort by Anantara, were among the big winners at the third Light Middle East Awards, attended by 500 industry professionals to recognise and reward the region’s most outstanding lighting projects and products.

Designed by Delta Lighting, Box Park won the Exterior Retail Lighting Project of the Year and Public Lighting Project of the Year categories, as an independent judging panel evaluated the merits of 32 shortlisted finalists competing across 10 categories.

The Banana Island Resort by Anantara, designed by Studio Lumen Lighting Design, won the Exterior Hospitality Lighting Project of the Year Award, while Souk Al Manzil and Thani Murshid Establishment, both from the UAE, were joint winners of the Sustainable Lighting Project of the Year award.

“Every year, the Light Middle East Awards attracts an increasingly diverse range of projects and products with energy efficiency and the use of new LED technologies a constant theme,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, organiser of Light Middle East and the Light Middle East Awards.

“It’s very important to highlight the thought process behind these amazing projects, and share with the public the reason why lighting, whether in public spaces, exteriors or interiors, is so stunning.”
