Christa Pineda Named People's Choice Award Winner
Earlier this year, Golden Lighting teamed up with Florida State University faculty members, Dr. Jill Pable and Amy Huber of the Department of Interior Architecture & Design to host a collegiate-level lighting design competition. Lighting Fundamentals students led by Dr. Jill Pable who were also enrolled in Professor Amy Huber’s CAD2 course were asked to design LED bath fixtures.
Judged based on creativity, functionality, and marketability, three winners of the contest were announced this summer. Golden Lighting later announced a plan to ask retailers and sales representatives in the lighting community to vote for their favorite design to determine the winner of Golden Lighting’s People’s Choice Award.
This summer, during June Lightovation, Golden Lighting displayed all of the FSU students’ lighting designs in its showroom at the Dallas Market Center. All of the concept boards were displayed and Golden Lighting showroom visitors were given an opportunity to vote.
Congratulations to Christa Pineda, creator of the “Infinity” sconce and winner of Golden Lighting’s People’s Choice Award. Ms. Pineda was also awarded Honorable Mention by Golden Lighting judges during the initial lighting design contest.
“We would like to thank Dr. Jill Pable, Professor Huber and all of the FSU students who participated in this year’s contest. We are excitedly looking forward to next year,” said Golden Lighting’s Creative Director, Danielle Dzurik.
