Design Plus powered by Light+Building

Whether these involved innovative, energy-efficient light sources or smart digital controls for highly complex intelligent buildings – many of these pioneering products have prompted a quantum leap when it comes to sustainability and comfort. The Design Plus competition powered by Light+Building is proof that these innovations also serve to inspire a whole host of aesthetic design possibilities.

The Design Plus award offers exhibitors an outstanding platform to demonstrate their creative and technical innovative drive. Students and recent graduates of creative study programmes are eligible to take part in the competition with visionary concepts and solutions. For up-and-coming designers the award is a unique chance to network with the industry and establish important contacts for the future.

Entries are evaluated by a jury of renowned experts according to the three aspects of design, ecology and innovation. The winning products of the Design Plus powered by Light+Building competition will be exhibited in a special section at the world’s largest trade fair for architecture and technology. For prize winners, Light+Building, with more than 190,000 international visitors, is a top-class venue for the presentation of the outstanding winning products to a specialist audience.
