Students – and this year non-students are included too – don’t forget to enter the SOLVE New Talent Search, where they’re looking for a design of a standing lamp. Entries close at the end of July, and you’ll find out all about it by following this link.

To inspire, I’ve found a couple of student lighting designs from all over the world.


This detatchable light is by Daniel Svahn, who is at Swedish design school, Beckmans.


The DearLight is by Gabriella Matheny, also of Beckmans.
