Sponsors and judges for the ongoing 3D Printed Luminaire Design Competition were treated to a tour of Immensa Technology Labs.
Huda Lighting, in partnership with Immensa Technology Labs, has launched the competition to introduce 3D printing technology to the lighting and interior design industries.
Designers from the MENA region are challenged to design a bespoke light fitting for residential and commercial use, which will be 3D printed by Immensa.
The tour began with an insightful presentation about 3D printing process and moved on to a tour around the lab, where they saw a wide range of 3D printed items as well as a variety of machines.
Huda lighting thanked the judges Sumaya Dabbagh from Dabbagh Architects, Kristina Zanic from Kristina Zanic Consultants, David McNeil from DPA Lighting Consultants, Khalifa AlQama from Dubai Future Foundation and Hercu Viljoen from ALEC, as well as the sponsors Autodesk, WILD (Women in Leadership Deliver) and CID (Commercial Interior Design), who they say have been "showing continuous support throughout this exciting journey."
The 10 shortlisted entries will be evaluated by the judges towards the end of the third quarter of 2020.
