ÅF Lighting wins 2 prestigious lighting awards in Chicago!

This award season has been great for ÅF Lighting so far. With several shortlisted projects for the Swedish and Danish lighting design awards, and two highly commended projects in the Lighting Design Awards in London last week, we can now add two international awards to our list!

On Wednesday, ÅF Lighting took home two prestigious Awards of Merit at the International Association of Lighting Designers’ (IALD) 35th award ceremony in Chicago. One for the pedestrian tunnel Story Wall in Eskilstuna, Sweden and one for the glorious Svindersvik Bridge in Nacka, south of Stockholm. The projects won in a field of more than 200 entries.

 ”We are truly honoured to have our designs recognised in the world´s most prestigious lighting design awards. Even getting shortlisted would have been an honour, so picking up two awards gives us tremendous joy as well as affirmation that we are well on the way of establishing ÅF Lighting as a world class lighting design practice. Fantastic job team!” says Jim Collin, Head of ÅF Lighting.
