OMS Design Competition 2013

We are looking for ideas and concepts from the designers comunity to create an entirely new vision for a luminarie of the future.
The competition is divided in two categories. The category A „Innovative LED luminarie design“ is focusing on conceptual design proposals of a LED luminarie, witout any limits for its application. Therefore you do not need to use existing luminarie design categories as base, but you can create a new luminarie concept or product.
