Zepter International is pleased to announce
12th design competition ARTZEPT for 2015 entitled:
“LET US ILLUMINATE THE WORLD!”
1st Prize €10,000
Light as a symbol of life – its beauty, warmth and cosiness – has had a mythical appeal throughout the history – a notion reflected in the centuries long aspirations of the humanity.
Prometheus, a Greek Titan god, who stole the fire and brought it to the mankind but then suffered a severe punishment for the deed, was the first herald of the human aspiration to illuminate and enlighten the world. Drawing on this spirit, illumination is the theme of this year’s competition. The essence of its task is to bring light into our spaces and surroundings, that is – into our lives, in a creative and decorative way.
From the fire glow in caves, ancient lighthouses and candlelit shrines and castles to the first electric bulbs and the present-day state-of-the-art illumination, neon signs and LED diodes, man has endeavoured to resolve functional lighting problems. Now our competition focuses on the decorative, aesthetical element of the light source, that is – on the illumination as an art and design.
Perhaps the most accurate explanation of what task has been put before the participants – artists and designers – is a piece that radiates light, a luminous object whose aesthetic property bears the same value as its functionality.
The ARTZEPT theme LET US ILLUMINATE THE WORLD is our contribution to “2015 – International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies”
