NEO Architectural Lighting launches The Flindt Project contest

30th April 2024

(USA) – NEO Architectural Lighting, Louis Poulsen’s exclusive partner for commercial lighting in North America, has launched a contest inviting designers and students to envision any of Christian Flindt’s award-winning Louis Poulsen designs in a conceptual installation project for an indoor or outdoor setting. These designs include the Flindt Bollard, Flindt Garden, Flindt Plaza, Flindt Wall, LP Grand and LP Xperi.

The public will then be invited to vote online for the best project in each of the six categories of the contest, pertaining to each of Flindt’s six products designed for Louis Poulsen. In addition, NEO Architectural Lighting will select an honorary winner from the votes for their participation.

The contest opened for submissions on Monday 29 April, and will remain open until 26 May. Following this, the public voting period will be open from 27 May to 2 June, before the winners are announced on 3 June.

Kent Pederson, Co-Founder and CEO of NEO Architectural Lighting, said: “We are excited to celebrate Christian Flindt’s talent and success with this unique competition. We can’t wait to see all of the projects and visions from our incredible design community.”

Christian Flindt has become known for his fresh and daring designs in conventional constructions, proving that he is a designer with the courage to experiment. Through his work with LEDs, he has succeeded in blending disparate fields such as lighting and furniture design.

Flindt began working with Louis Poulsen in 2006, when he developed the Flindt Bollard, the LP Xperi, the LP Grand, and the Flindt Wall. The latter won the Danish Design Award in 2019. His lighting designs have garnered multiple awards including the Bo Bedre Design Award in 2005 and the Bolig Magasinet Design Award for the Louis Poulsen Flindt Collection, as well as the ELFORSK Prize in 2014 by the Danish Department of Energy and Electricity for the Louis Poulsen Flindt Bollard.
