The Norwegian Lighting Prize is the most generous honorary award for lighting design and lighting products in Norway, and has since 2001 been awarded annually under the auspices of the non-profit organization Lyskultur.
The winners of the Norwegian Lighting Prize 2021 were chosen during the Day of Light on 17 November, where the nominees were present and streamed live from DOGA in Oslo. The prize has in recent years experienced an explosive increase in the number of applications, and the jury’s assessment of the applications resulted earlier this autumn in 21 nominated projects.
In the wide range of nominees, there were some clear trends that the jury hopes will inspire future projects. Among other things, there was a particularly strong focus on sustainability combined with new technology and lighting design with good visual and aesthetic qualities.
Seven winners were chosen and 14 diplomas were awarded.
