About The LIT Design Awards

The LIT Design Awards ™ was created to recognize the efforts of talented international lighting product designers and lighting implementers. We believe that lighting is both an art and a science, and it is one of the most important elements of design. LIT was envisioned to celebrate the creativity and innovation in the fields of lighting products and application.

“Light in Theory” (LIT) was derived from the theory of light on an abstract, more encompassing level. Without this electromagnetic spectrum of waves that brings color and illumination to the world, we would not have lighting products or implementation of those products. Thus, we draw attention to lighting, designers, and the theory of light that keeps our homes and communities lit.

LIT is open to submissions on a global level, accepting entries from lighting manufacturers, designers and practices from all around the world. Selected by our esteemed jury of designers and leaders in the lighting, interior design and architectural fields, the annual winners will receive the LIT trophy, extensive publicity showcasing their designs and products to an international audience, and more.

Farmani Group assembled The LIT Design Awards to bring attention to achievements in lighting product design and to promote the winning designers and implementers to a worldwide audience. Farmani Group, established in 1985, is the organizer of International Design Awards (IDA), Prix de la Photographie in Paris, London International Creative Awards, and The Lucie Awards for Photography, which has emerged as one of the world’s most prestigious annual photography awards.
