IESNYC Congratulates 40under40 New York Winners

Lighting Magazine has selected this year’s 40under40, an international program to identify the most talented and promising individuals working in the lighting design industry.

To recognize and celebrate the new generation of lighting design talent, 40 young lighting designers, from 14 different countries, were selected as representatives of this new generation. Their mission is to take the craft forward in the twenty-first century, and to build on the work of the pioneers who created the profession and achieved recognition for it in previous decades.

To be eligible for consideration in the 40under40 Class of 2019, nominees must be under the age of 40. The selection panel looks for nominees who have specific achievements in the field of architectural lighting design. The judges also look for evidence of the nominee’s passion for the craft of lighting. 2019 selectors were Glenn Shrum, Parsons School of Design; Asst. Prof. Dr. Karolina Zielinska-Dabkowska, Designs4People and GUT LightLab; Peter Raynham, University College London and Jill Entwistle, editor, Lighting magazine.

The designers will receive their trophies at the prestigious Lighting Design Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 16 in London.
