BDP’s lighting team walked away with impressive wins in three categories at this year’s Lighting Design Awards, including the top accolade of Lighting Designer of the Year. The awards were announced on 20 March at a ceremony in London.
BDP won Lighting For Leisure with Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Large Retail with Trinity Leeds, and Mark Ridler, lighting director at BDP, took the top prize.
The judges said: “Mark’s work consistently excels year-in, year-out. His guiding hand has driven the success of some outstanding BDP projects this year. He preaches a common-sense approach to lighting in the numerous presentations he has delivered at industry events and his contributions to some significant guidance documents in 2013 are also worth acknowledging. Lastly, his work with the Institute of Lighting Professionals has really helped bring the industry together.”
Mark Ridler said: “It was a great night for BDP and a big thank you to our clients for giving us great projects and to the team for delivering great design.”
Ben Cronin, editor of Lighting commented: “Congratulations once again to this year's winners and finalists, who have all demonstrated that they are leading the way in the lighting industry. Our judges had such a tough time this year deciding on the winners. With more people in the room than ever before, the Lighting Design Awards continues to be the biggest night in the lighting calendar.”
