Description
Even as technology keeps advancing, in lighting as in other fields, the world we live in becomes ever more homogenized. The techniques at our disposal (LED lighting, control over intensity or color, preprogrammed lighting schemes, etc...) give us the feeling of a personalized environment, but only within the limits of our own private space. Everyone can live this experience—at home. But when we cross the threshold of our front door, what happens then?
For this third edition of the CLUE competition, candidates are invited to reflect on these questions. Proposals should suit the context of a public space—interior or exterior—and should answer a social need while improving quality of life and having a positive impact on the community, all through the personalization of lighting. There are no budgetary or technological limitations, and candidates are given carte blanche to present inventive lighting solutions. Proposals will be evaluated on the relevance and the originality of their approach.

Jury
The jury will be announced following the launch of the contest.
