The 2002 Lumen Awards honored projects from Manhattan to Sao Paulo

You couldn't ask for a more diverse slate of winners at this year's Lumen Awards, sponsored annually by the New York chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society. The Awards are not meant to be competitive, but a selection of the year's finest designs. This year's winners are a particularly interesting group, spanning the globe and driven by very different mandates. The 2002 Lumen Awards were selected by a jury that included Eliot Soffes, Soffes Wood Architecture & Interiors; Frank Lorenz, AKF Engineers; C.J. Mapletoft, Eclipse Lighting Corporation; Dan Blitzer, Contract Marketing; Alicia Kapheim, Philips Lighting Company; Jim Conti, Jim Conti Lighting Design; and Bill Weathersby, Architectural Record.

Additional awards included a Section Service Award to Henry Muller, “in recognition of outstanding service to the New York Section of the IES that has significantly furthered the purpose of the Society continuously, over the past five years, in programs and other activities,” and a Section Meritorious Service Award to Addison Kelly, “in recognition of exceptional service to the Society, for having significantly furthered the purpose for which the Society was founded, and having continued over 15 years in various programs and activities at the section level.”

In addition, the 2002 Richard Kelly Grant was awarded to Yuiko Kobayashi, for developing an educational program introducing the world of lighting to grade school children ages six to 12. There were four winners of the IESNY Student Design Competition. In first place was Philipp Metternich, of the Parsons School of Design (instructor, Jim Conti). Second place winners were: Chiao Yun-Yu, New York School of Interior Design (instructor, Patricia Di Maggio); Kumiko Jitsukawa, New York School of Interior Design (instructor, Steven Mesh), and Chien-Chun Chen, Parsons School of Design (instructor, Randy Sabedra). The judges for the Student Design Competition were Frank Conti, Barbara Horton, Diana Mesh, and Christina Trautwein.
