Milan – Picking the winner of the Best Use of Light provoked a lively, thought-provoking conversation. With such variety in both scale and setting, how could the nominated projects even be compared in the first place? What sparked the judges’ particular interest in Unfluencer is that its creator, George Lendorff – a video and light artist working in the fields of opera and theatre – ‘managed to take scenography into a spatial context, into our worlds. In this project, only light is used to create a space as well as a spatial identity,’ said Daniel Heckscher, interior architect and partner at Note Design Studio.
