35 Entries Demonstrate Range of Creativity

SAN JOSE, California (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

Xicato, enablers of the Internet of Lights, was a proud participant and product partner of last weeks annual LightCycle competition, produced for the fourth time by Electrolight. There were 35 entries to the competition, primarily from architects and interior designers but also from a half-dozen universities. Each participant was given a Xicato LED module along with reflectors and accessories and challenged to use their creativity and design a light fixture that embodied the principles of environmental sustainability, Judging took place at the Second Story studios in Melbourne where all the entries are displayed.

Regarding the winning luminaire from Aspect Studio, Ian McDougall, judge and director of ARM Architecture said, It worked on two levels: a conventional spherical and patterned translucent pendant, but on close viewing an incredibly detailed, honeycombed structure with an air of the organic. Intriguing.

Electrolight's founding director Paul Beale said, "This has to be one of the best community lighting events that we have ever organized. The creativity of the entrants and the excellent equipment from Xicato was second to none".

This years event was held in association with Melbourne Indesign Australias go-to event for design lovers which showcases the best in new products and talent in architecture and design. To learn more about the event visit, http://www.electrolight.com.au/blog/2014/08/best-lightcycle-ever/.
