And the Winner Is...

Spent the eve before the opening of Lightfair attending the 25th Annual GE Edison Awards ceremony. The competition is for lighting professionals who use GE lighting sources in a design project.

Drum roll please...
The overall winning project went to the Office of Visual Interaction Inc. (Enrique Peiniger and Jean Sundin) who designed the lighting for the United States Air Force Memorial in Arlington, Va.

The award was well deserved, in my opinion, as I am constantly noticing this striking memorial from everywhere around my D.C. home. The lighting definitely makes it stand out.

Congratulations to all the winners, for whom I'll post a link on Wednesday.

Lighting the Way to Lightfair!

Tomorrow dawns once again in Las Vegas, once again for Lightfair in the West. Electrical Contractor magazine once again will be exhibiting and there's quite a bit on the agenda. We'll be meeting and seeing what is happening at TCP, Schneider Electric, Philips Lumileds and other Philips divisions. We'll also be at GE Consumer and Industrial's lunchtime press event and visiting Lightcontrol's press setup at the Wynn.

Check back for updates tomorrow night, Pacific Standard Time.
