May 27, 2011 – No Canadians picked up any awards at this year’s GE Edison Awards competition, an international contest to lighting professionals who demonstrate creative and significant use of GE light sources (lamps and/or LEDs) in a lighting design project completed during the previous year.

GE presented the 2010 awards to the recipients earlier this month on the eve of Lightfair International, which is arguably North America’s largest lighting show.

This year’s GE Edison Awards winners are:

Alexander Rotsch and Andreas Schulz of Licht Kunst Licht AG, a lighting design firm in Bonn, Germany.
The Science Storms at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (Illinois, USA) designed by Paul Gregory, JR Krauza, Joshua Spitzig, Kenneth Schutz and Dan Henry of Focus Lighting (New York, USA), Architect – Evidence Design (New York, USA).
David Yurman Townhouse (New York, USA) designed by Renée Cooley, Renée Joosten and Andressa Lopes of Cooley Monato Studio (New York, USA), Architect – Gabellini Sheppard Associates (New York, USA).

A panel of five judges selected this yearʼs winning entry in the following categories: functional excellence; architectural compatibility; effective use of state-of-the-art lighting products and techniques; appropriate color, form and texture revelation; energy effectiveness and cost effectiveness.
