L A M P (Lighting Architecture Movement Project): Thursday, November 20, 2014.

We are excited to be part of the judging panel for the 2nd Annual L A M P International Design Competition and Exhibition this Thursday night. Join us for the Opening Celebration Event this Thursday at 188 Kingsway, Vancouver, 6-11pm for beer, wine, beats and stunning design!

Tickets available at: welovelamp.ca


L A M P is an international design competition created to offer designers an opportunity to engage their talents in unique conceptual explorations and to connect the local community to architecture and design. Expect to see exceptional installations from the lighting industry’s brightest, up-and-coming designers.

This year, the top 10 lamps were chosen from over 50 global submissions and entries were critiqued by some of the industry’s most influential design professionals in the Pacific Northwest. The exhibit will feature 10 original jury-selected lighting entries, this year’s LAMP winner, and a one-of-a-kind installation by Ricky Alvarez of Tinto Creative and Leanne Kriz.

Arne Jacobsen’s SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen: Michael Sheridan speaks at Inform Interiors.

SASsheridan_IMG_7208Evoke was lucky enough to attend the inspirational lecture by New York-based architect Michael Sheridan about the SAS Royal Hotel on Tuesday. The lecture was part of the Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life Speaker’s Series.

Mr. Sheridan spoke at length about the Arne Jacobsen designed Hotel in Copenhagen, and of the inspiration he drew from his experience of staying in Room 606 (for which he subsequently wrote: Room 606 – The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen).

The SAS Royal Hotel, designed for Scandinavian Airlines Systems, has also become known for being the birthplace of both the Egg and Swan chairs which Jacobsen designed specifically for the Hotel, in collaboration with Fritz Hansen

Thanks, as always, to Inform Interiors for continuing to present such inspiring events.
