Martinelli Luce was founded in 1950 thanks to the intuition of Elio Martinelli, one of the most significant designers of the sixties and seventies in the field of lighting. With an aesthetic language inspired by nature and the purity of geometric shapes, Martinelli products are the result of investment in production technologies, materials and innovation. Some lights are in fact, true icons of Italian design, winning numerous awards, including the Compasso d’Oro.
Strengthened by its constant research towards innovation, Martinelli Luce is now launching the “Martinelli Luce Lighting Contest” on the Desall platform. Desall, which specializes in online design contests, has a community of over 130,000 creatives, planners, architects and designers in over 200 countries worldwide. The company is looking for a suspension lamp dedicated to the domestic environment and in particular to the living area of the house. The product should best express the company’s design philosophy, which offers collections characterized by minimalism, dynamism, modularity, seriality, geometric shapes and references to the natural world. The lamp to be designed must also have a premium character that expresses high aesthetic level, quality, innovation, synthesis and/or eco-sustainable research.
All materials suitable for industrial production are allowed, preferably reducing the use of plastic material. Solutions that use innovative and/or eco-sustainable materials capable of exalting the high quality character of the product will be particularly appreciated. It will be possible to submit proposals until April 28, 2022, while the winning project will be announced by the end of June 2022.
