After weeks of submissions and an intense week of online voting, we’re excited to finally announce the two winners of Inhabitat’s Lighten Up! Lighting Design Competition. We received hundreds of entries featuring projects that employ LEDs in innovative and interesting ways, ranging from a colorful art installation that reacts to changing light to a restaurant donning beautiful ceiling lamps to a research campus adorned with LED back-lit wood walls. We narrowed all the entries we received down to just 30 finalists, and then left it up to Inhabitat readers to decide which two designs were most deserving of $1000 prizes from Elemental LED. So who won? Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

Drumroll Please……….

The winner of the residential category is the Air Turbine Rotor LED Light by Margot Krasojevic! Her unique 3D-printed light also acts as a vertical axis wind turbine. The shell traps the wind and rotates the axis to generate and transform energy into light.

Congratulations to both winners! They will each receive a $1,000 prize from Elemental LED to use towards their next big LED project.
