Golden Lighting and FSU Lighting Design Competition 2017
This year, Golden Lighting teamed up with the staff and students of Florida State University for its lighting design competition. FSU students were invited to design LED bathroom fixtures. Students were taught the basics of lighting design and asked to use what they learned to create a design. Contestants were judged based on the creativity, functionality, and the marketability of their products. “We learned a lot the first year,” said Golden Lighting’s Product Design Manager and contest judge, Danielle Dzurik. She continued, “One of the most important things was that we needed to very clearly state our requirements and expectations. We chose to work with Florida State University because the school has a great design program and it is local”. All of the design concepts are on display in Golden Lighting’s Dallas showroom. The winners of the contest were recently announced. Golden Lighting awarded a cash prize to First-Place winner Brianna Langman for her design, Vertex. A prototype of the design hangs with the concept board. “The design impressed because of its ability to take the environmental consideration of the bathroom mirror into account and use it as a design feature,” said Dzurik. The two honorable mentions, Shannon Burger and Christa Pineda each received gift cards for their designs.
