Lux Awards 2016 shortlist revealed

The shortlist for the 2016 Lux Awards has been announced and this year the list features a whole host of impressive projects and inventive new technology. 

Our team of expert judges – including experienced specifiers and end users of lighting – have considered the projects entered, visited the sites, spoken to the key people, and whittled down the list to just those schemes that they believe have a shot at winning a coveted Lux Award trophy.

These are the projects that have struck that balance between looking great, fulfilling the brief, and keeping energy and maintenance costs down.

The Recycling category in association with Recolight and Lumicom, the SLL Young Lighter of the Year in association with the Society of Light and Lighting, the Client of the Year category in association with the Dextra Group, and the Lux Person of the Year in association with Samsung, will be announced soon.

The awards will be held on the 24th of November 2016 and this year the ceremony is transforming. The awards will take place in a brand new venue – The InterContinental London – The O2 on the Greenwich Peninsula.

Sitting just below the Emirates cable cars, which zip from one side of the Thames to the other, the hotel, with its views over the glittering Canary Wharf skyline, will make this year’s Lux Awards look and feel like no other.

Tables for the Lux Awards 2016 are now on sale and you can find out more here.
