1. Can architects/building architects participate in the competition?
Yes, architects/architects are allowed to participate in the competition. The rules refer to design professionals and students, but other designers are also welcome to participate in the design competition.
2. Does the product family requirement apply to both categories, or just category two?
Primarily, product family thinking applies to category two. The scalability of the product into a product family is counted as an advantage for the competition proposal.
In category one competition proposal can be a single product. However, you can combine both categories in your proposal by adding a bright light as part of a lighting product family, or by designing a product family consisting of several bright lights.
3. Does the E27 light source requirement apply only for the CORE collection? Is it possible to use something other than E27 for the HEALTH collection products
Only in the competition task of the CORE collection is the lamp designed for an E27 light source (one or more). You can use other options in the proposal of the HEALTH collection.
4. Will applications from abroad and in English be accepted?
