 また、2003年第16回「コイズミ国際学生照明デザインコンペ(ILDC)」においては、過去上位入選したもののなかから創造性豊かな作品を「i-ACTION」と名づけ、製品化いたしました。学生と企業とのパートナーシップと若い優れた才能を広く社会に知らせる事ができたこの試みは、各方面より多くの関心が寄せられました。この試みはさらに発展を遂げ、世界の著名デザイナーとのワールドコラボレートプロジェクト「D-ACTION」プロダクツにおいて、第9 回 銀賞受賞者Sara Dal Gallo(サラ・ダル・ガロ)氏の「CAMMINO(カンミーノ)」シリーズを発表し、大きく成長していくクリエイターとのコラボーレーションとして、さらなる広がりを見せています。




New Power, Illuminate Our Future

Koizumi International Lighting Design Competition for Students (ILDC) that accepts submission of lighting design by students celebrated the 25th anniversary this year. Over the 25 years, more than 33,000 students have submitted their works from 42 countries. We are proud to have been able to continue the tradition this long, and to see the event grow this big. This would not have been possible without the strong support from the jury, professionals in related industries and teachers at each school. I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to them. I am happy to say that many of the award winners have become successful designers in various fields worldwide. The initial purpose of this competition was to foster a young generation of designers working in lighting, and I believe we have successfully achieved this goal.

Also, we launched a product series called i-ACTION at the 16th competition in 2003, where we chose some of the most creative works from past high-rated award winners for commercialization. This project successfully displayed the collaboration between students and a corporation, and also the excellence of young talents. It received quite a lot of attention from various fields. This further evolved into an international collaboration project with globally renowned designers called D-ACTION Products, in which Ms. Sara Dal Gallo, the former Silver Award winner from the 9th competition, released CAMMINO series. It was wonderful to work with a growing creator who started with our competition.

Today, students around the world are producing energetic, romantic works while addressing the protection of the environment. It was such a pleasure and inspiration to be able to feel their passion every year. We would like to continue our support for students in various countries and help them illuminate our future with new ideas.

This is the last of our ILDC, but we would highly appreciate your continuing support for our other future projects.
