178 TECHNOLOGY / THE ARC SHOW WORD ON THE TWEET


#thearcshow was creating a buzz online...


Tim Donkin @TimDonkin Well I’ve had a very productive Arc. Thanks to all the exhibitors for funding our industry get together. #arcshow


Wandsworth Group @WandsworthGroup We’re busy down at @thearcshow stand M22A. Why not pop in and see Kung KNG technology and Wandsworth latest designs


Kevin Theobald @kevintheobald Giulio Antonutto demystifies daylight design at #IALD Enlighten Conference. #TheArcShow


creatmsophere @creatmosphere Great day at @thearcshow exploring the latest LED modules, fibre optics and new lighting controls. #arcshow


Suzie Durham @durhamdesigns #arcshow Talk went well. Some good Qs incl. what’s the differrence between us and the #greendeal. Who knows: GD hasn’t been tested yet!


simon shuck @designlights What an exhausting but fruitful day @thearcshow with lots of new contacts.


BRUNEL UNIVERSITY DESIGN CHALLENGE


Each year undergraduates from Brunel University’s highly rated Product and Industrial Design courses take up the LED Architectural Lighting Challenge with over 100 second year students given the op- portunity to respond to a brief set remote controlled spotlights specialist RCL. This year’s brief was to design and de- velop an LED architectural light fitting, innovative either in the lighting effect it produces, its operation, its mounting arrangement, or in the way it fits into its surrounding. Only commercially viable designs were accepted, those with an ef- ficient, functional light output and a realistic manufacturing process. Ten finalists were shortlisted and invited to The ARC Show to showcase their designs and hear the judges announce the overall winner. Such was the standard of entries that in fact two winners were announced: George Killaspy for his Polarescent fixture and Xander Dawoods Arclite. The RCL competition is part of Brunel’s ongoing commitment to creating links with industry - preparing students for roles in today’s demanding business envi- ronment, whilst giving companies valuable access to the creative ideas of over 100 students.


John Allison @johnallison_ Enjoying seeing what’s going on in the wolrd of lighting @thearcshow so far! Linear Technology has impressed me the most so far.


Paul James @mondarceditor Inspirations Gallery emphasises #lighting #design about creativity, not just numbers.

Amanda Baker is part of the Design Plus team at Brunel, who help forge these connections with real world designers and manufacturers. “A lighting project has been a feature of the second year of our design courses for many years,” she says. “This has led to many of our graduates working in lighting design related roles


in industry. But also, from an educational point of view, the subject of lighting design requires a balance of technical know-how with design creativity which is the precise balance of skills that differen- tiates Brunel from many of our competi- tors. Focusing on the architectural lighting market introduces students to a market sector they are not necessarily familiar with and using LED light sources under- lines important environmental design considerations in addition to all the usual design challenges of identifying opportu- nities, ideation, development and testing and production of prototypes and commu- nication material.” Baker had much praise for all of the ten finalists on display at The ARC Show. “Together they all represent projects where a number of the challenges within the brief from RCL have been effectively addressed: Innovation, suitability for the architectural market, lighting perfor- mance and manufacturability. But each finalist, in different ways has had to demonstrate some additional quality to be selected. For example the sheer ingenu- ity and effectiveness of George’s use of Polaroid filters or the highly efficient design engineering of Xander’s mecha- nism. We are very proud of both the skill, knowledge and ideas demonstrated, but also the diversity of approaches from our students.” www.brunel.ac.uk www.designplus.org.uk
