“Simply the best… And thank you for all you do for us both individually and as a community… ”
“Light Collective UK, Sharon Stammers and Martin Lupton you are an inspiration to lighting designers the world over.
You embrace and stand for every value that the words ‘lighting design community’ mean in the truest sense of the word.
Your recognising and empowering of women through your Women in Design Initiative is a huge force for change that is gathering momentum and which has my full support.
I was so glad that I was in attendance to see you both receive The Lux Awards Lighting Personality Award which is richly deserved!
I will wear glitter on my face in unity with you guys ANY day of the week. Hats off to you guys!”
“Truly deserving winners especially for their WIL initiative…justice is finally served! Kudos to Lux Awards for awarding the deserving candidates… unlike another award that only hands out awards to its favourites…”
