Norwegian Lighting Award 2021

Light Bureau wins the Norwegian Lighting Award for the design at the DNB Coin Collection in the Open Class Category.


Last night Light Bureau’s team in Norway took home the Norwegian Lighting Design Award 2021 for the lighting concept at DNB Coin Collection, with the following statement by the jury:

The project’s impressive attention to detail shows how much of an impact light has on our perception of the world around us. In this exhibition, something as simple as a coin is depicted as an almost sacred object. The demanding task of creating miniature lighting is solved in a successful way, and the result is lovely and inviting. The way the luminaires are integrated in the showcases, drawers, niches, and ceiling gives the coins full attention. This project testifies to a strong and close collaboration between the interior designer and the lighting designer.
