What is going on?

We cordially invite you to participate in this year's edition of the competition for the best project or realization.
LUG Best Project Contest!

Design a building, façade or interior. illuminate it with LUG and FLASH&DQ luminaires and win attractive prizes!

Take part in the competition in one of the categories:


Creating lighting effects, exposing selected parts of the building, highlighting and emphasizing architectural details to create an attractive image of the illuminated object - this is architectural lighting.
In modern buildings, the external zone often penetrates their interior, obliterating the boundaries of space. Interiors designated only with a glass shell become an ornament of minimalist structures when the dark falls and the light from inside reveals their existence.

In this category, the law of scale applies: not only façades, outdoor, infrastructural and architectural lighting, but also illuminated interiors of buildings are eligible, provided that they have a greater cubature than 1000 m3.


The subject of the competition is the presentation of a REALIZATION of any architectural object of minimum volume 1000 m3, illuminated by means of LUG luminaires, put into service no earlier than 1/01/2017.

The Work should include:

  • photographic documentation of the investment illuminated with LUG luminaires
  • min. 3 pictures, resolution: min. 300 dpi, size similar to 3500 x 2500 pixels, orientation: optional, format: .jpg, .png, .tiff

Interior design is usually the work on a "living body" - in direct contact with the basic human needs. The result is a mood and atmosphere that results in the well-being of people staying in this interior.
The amount of light, the way it is scattered, the choice of the right color temperature are parameters that you need to be aware of when designing a well-lit interior. The quality of design of the elements used has also a significant impact. And here is the place for design.

In this category, the detail counts. Each, even the smallest interior has a chance to become the one, the most appreciated and desirable, if it satisfies both the ergonomic and aesthetic needs indicated in the functional program.

Best Interior Contest

Previous editions winners

Here are some of the works submitted for the previous installments of the competition:

The designed loft living room in the attic is located in a modern apartment building in Krakow. Open space combines several zones, ie living, kitchen, dining room, dressing room, therefore lighting should be precisely and practically designed and adapted to the needs of residents. Starting from the entrance, TETRIS B ceiling spotlight with a blue accent leads us to the wardrobe and further towards the kitchen area, where usually the resident then goes. The main accent in the day zone is a decorative element of the interior ECLIPSE lamp, its round shapes and materials used perfectly match the minimalist interior. The lamp is quite large, but it is interesting to complement the space especially in high rooms. The kitchen part is visually separated from the living room by a multifunctional island, the bar zone is illuminated by CONCRA concrete lamps, which refer to the floor and give the loft character of the interior. The dining table is illuminated by a two-color designer lamp HB 443 referring in color to the ceiling spot lighting, which has an original form and blends in perfectly with this space. Rounded lamps and blue accessories warm up the cold interior and make a more friendly impression, while the designer shapes matched with their shape and color create a harmonious whole. Residents will certainly feel comfortable, because each zone is adequately illuminated.

Michał Wielecki

The service and conference room of Bosh Service. The use of gray, anthracite and counterpoint colors in red, reflects the colors of Bosch. The lighting has a working and decorative function. The red elements in MANASLU and ARCHEO luminaires add flavor. Concrete motifs emphasize the rawness of the technical interior.


Implementation of the project of reconstruction of the main entrance to the building, the hall interior and the main staircase with side corridors. The luminaires used for the implementation are exterior and interior systems, mainly LUG and FLASH&DQ - COMA A.

Good Concept Studio

In the concept have been used CONCRA luminaires, whose design correspond with surrounding interior. The materials used in the interior are brick, concrete and white ceramic tiles. Similar approach is represented in the luminaires - raw, elegant architectural concrete and steel. For the above statement, the modern CONCRA luminaire is a complement to the interior. The application provided by the manufacturer are offices, conference rooms, reception desks, shopping centers, car showrooms, boutiques, however, the form of the luminaire also suits the residential function of both existing and newly designed. CONCRA luminaires decorate and enrich the character of the place in which they are used.

Paweł Klamann

The subject of the study was a project of interior design and stage design of the permanent exhibition of the Theater Museum at pl. Wolności 7a in Wrocław. Due to the nature of the building, all luminaires have high technical parameters and a non-invasive design. Flash&DQ luminaires were used in rooms on the ground floor: in the foyer and communication and on the first floor: in the museum library and office of Prof. Janusz Deglera. Due to the antique and industrial character of the interiors, it was recognized that the best complement to the exhibition will be the use of High Bay HB 443 luminaires from Flash&DQ collection. The luminaires were suspended along the ventilation ducts running through the interior. Due to the dominant colors: black and white in the designed interior it was decided on the color of the black housing and the white detail. In the office of prof. Janusz Degler has a showcase and on the wall there are reproductions of well-known paintings. Due to the office character of the interior it was illuminated by Flash&DQ TLON luminaires in black colour and the diameter of 60 cm.

Amawa Architects

The theme of the presented project is one of the 90 apartments included in the new development investment planned for the first quarter of next year under the name "Golden horseshoe" in the city of Głogów. By design, the project was to be prepared on the basis of the latest technologies available on the market, and the presentation itself was made in the most illustrative way of future apartments. It is because of innovative and modern solutions that the Flash&DQ - MOSAIC, TUBULAR and ECLIPSE luminaires have been used as lighting, which, thanks to their form and advanced technology, perfectly fit into the ideas of the project.

What do others think about the competition?

  • This is the 3rd edition of the competition - previously run as Flash&DQ Best Interior Contest. This year, we are expanding the focus on the entire LUG assortment and the opportunity to submit external and infrastructural projects. We also increased the prize budget (with the whole sum over € 12 000). We are on good the way to reward every year the creativity of architects and interior designers, who appreciate LUG products by placing them in their projects.

  • Light has always been a very important factor in interior design, due to the influence it has later on the user. The contest organized by LUG confirmed my belief that this approach pays off. As a Laureate, I had the opportunity to visit a production facility, find out how LED light is produced and what are the most important aspects of lighting design.

Download 3D models

The design categories of the competition (Concept) require the use of 3D models of LUG luminaires. The competition Partners provide access to them in all possible formats, suitable for use in a wide range of architectural and interior design software: Revit, Archicad, Sketchup, 3ds Max, CAD Decor Pro and others.

The BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology is more and more often required when developing documentation in public projects. That is why the Architecture category partner is BIMobject - the largest and fastest growing digital content management system of BIM objects in Europe. Thanks to that, as an architect, engineer, constructor or designer, you have free access to 3D models, fully adapted to the latest BIM technology standards.
