What we care about?


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


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.


City squares, parks, boulevards, but also parking lots, stations, airports, as well as the space of an ordinary street - this is a lively area with which each of us has direct contact. Properly lit, it becomes a meeting place for residents, a background for various activities, thanks to which the day lengthens. Underexposed space, not giving a sense of security, disappears after dark in anticipation of the next day. It does not have to be that way - provided that the artificial light is man-friendly, designed according to his needs.

What do others think about the competition?

  • This is the 4th 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.

Download 3D models

Part of the strategy of supporting Architects and Designers is to provide a full range of tools for Architects, Designers and Graphic designers. The result of cooperation undertaken with specialists from the 3D model and BIM suppliers industry is a collection of 3D models, 2D blocks, visualization of lighting fixtures in selected architectural spaces and the light distribution files.
