Join us for L A M P’s 2nd Annual International Lighting Design Competition and Vancouver Exhibition starting Nov. 20th, 2014.  Exhibit runs Nov. 21-24. Get your tickets now! 


Sponsored by GRAY Magazine, L A M P is an international design competition created to offer designers an opportunity to engage their talents in unique conceptual explorations and to connect the local community to architecture and design. Expect to see exceptional installations from the lighting industry’s brightest, up-and-coming designers.

Join us for L A M P’s Opening Celebration Event on Nov. 20, 2014. This year, the top 10 lamps were chosen from over 50 global submissions and entries were critiqued by some of the industry’s most influential design professionals in the Pacific Northwest. The exhibit will feature 10 original jury-selected lighting entries, this year’s LAMP winner, and a one-of-a-kind installation by Ricky Alvarez of Tinto Creative and Leanne Kriz.  Event hours 6:00pm -11:00pm. Expect beer, wine, beats, and stunning design. Tickets can be purchased through We Love Lamp.
