Delighted to announce our LED lighting innovation 'Light Emitting Concrete' has been shortlisted for DESIGNBOOM's 'Happy LED Life' competition and it has been selected for the prestigous exhibition at Gwangju's 2015 International Design Biennale, where the winner will be selected.This competition was about discovering new ways of experiencing the familiar and realising the potential of design on a social, cultural and environmental level through LED lighting.The brief was to explore smart lighting ideas and products for public and private spaces seeking to improve our lit environment through LED technology, while raising awareness around low-energy consumption, developing sustainable and imaginative LED lighting solutions for production by Korean technology companies, supporting the local design community and the greater Asian economy.The theme of the 2015 Biennale is 'Conviviality with Design'. It seeks to portray the way in which good design is not only functionally outstanding, but how it accompanies our lives in a way that improves our existence; adding energy and pleasure to our daily activities through tangible and intangible values.Gwangju International Design Biennale 2015 aims at getting the public to rediscover the essence of design, and the power it can bring to individuals and corporations in contemporary times, particularly in relationship to the growing presence of standardized technology.

We have been selected to appear in The Architects Journal (AJ) 'The Architecture Tomorrow Gallery' for our project Park Bridge in the Bridges category at MIPIM UK this year (2015). The AJ had a huge volume of entries this year, the quality of which were of a very high standard so being curated is a superb achievement. This is Fantastic news!
