The winners of the 2014 Lighting Design Awards were announced at a ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane last night.

After another record breaking year for entries and an astounding shortlist, the judges had their work cut out in picking the most deserving winners.
Since their inception, the Lighting Design Awards – now in its 12th year – have been at the heart of the industry calendar, shining a light on the most talented companies the industry has to offer.
The awards were hosted by Simon Evans and post awards, guests enjoyed entertainment at the acdc 80’s themed after-party. The entertainment carried on until 3am.
Big winners on the night included BDP who took three awards home, including the Lighting Designer of the Year award for Mark Ridler. Hoare Lea Lighting and Maurice Brill Lighting Design were hot on their heels, taking away two trophies each. Hoare Lea Lighting was rewarded twice for the Western Transit Shed project. Philips went home winning the outdoor category and Cree won manufacturer of the year. Relative newcomer LED Engin took the prize for best Light Source.
My personal favourite was the OLED Moon chandelier by Cinimod Studio
Thank you to the expert panel of judges who put so much time and effort into deciding all of the eventual winners. It must have been a difficult job for all the categories.
