Honouring BC’s Best Lighting Designers

Vancouver, Canada, 2019-06-03 - 

On May 30, the Illuminating Engineering Society of British Columbia (IESBC) awarded its 2019 ‘Vision Award’ recipients, which honours outstanding BC lighting designers for their work. The gala event held at CBC Studio One served up canapés and cocktails followed by the awards ceremony celebrating the best in BC’s lighting community. 


“The lighting projects received this year showcased a variety of organizations utilizing new lighting technology to create new spaces and upgrade existing ones,” says Marty Geusebroek, IESBC’s chair member and account manager at CDM2. “From universities to public outdoor areas, it’s remarkable to see how subtle lighting additions can enhance texture, emphasize colour, and support the structure of the built environment.”


This year’s IESBC’s Vision Award and Award of Merit recipient is:


Additional Award of Merit recipients include:


 

The 2019 BC Hydro Power Smart Lighting Redesign Award recipient is:


This year’s honourable mention is:


  • The Origo Club (Joy Chao & Michelle Tse) for Interior Lighting Design located in Richmond, BC.

Submissions for the IES ‘Vision Awards’ open yearly in January and projects are judged based on how well the lighting design meets the program criteria. It is not a competition, and it is stage one leading up to IES’s national ‘Illumination Awards,’ which will be presented on August 8 at the IES Conference in Louisville, KY.

This prestigious award recognizes good lighting projects that exemplify the effective use of lighting controls in nonresidential applications. Guidelines suggestive of what to include in your submission are available. 


Illumination Award for Interior Lighting Design
In 1902 Edwin F. Guth founded the St. Louis Brass Company and later renamed it the Edwin F. Guth Company. Mr. Guth's profound creativity, entrepreneurialism and focus to improve interior lighting are partially represented through 147 patents awarded to him prior to his passing in 1962. This award recognizes exceptional interior lighting projects that balance the functional illumination of space with the artistic application of light to enhance the occupant's experience.


Illumination Award for Outdoor Lighting Design
The Outdoor Lighting Design Award recognizes excellence in lighting design and application in all aspects of exterior lighting.
