We are proud and honored to announce that we have won the 2020 Illumination Award of Distinction for our GTC Matrix project, the highest level of recognition by the IES Illuminating Engineering Society.⠀

“On behalf of my team and me, I thank the IES members of the jury for recognizing the result of an enormous multidisciplinary effort and hard work that we performed on this project. We are very proud to have accomplished such an extraordinary achievement acknowledged by one of the most prestigious institutions of lighting profession among so many amazing projects.⠀
GTC Matrix is an excellent example of total lighting design and engineering. Light fixture Trick that we designed in 2014, which became a paradigm in graphic lighting was then uniquely customized, together with the control system and wiring, for this particular project. Now that customized product became a standard that can be used in countless ways and possibilities. Designing lighting instruments, implementing them in an unexpected way but also convincing the client GTC Group and iGuzzini manufacturers to trust and work with us, demonstrates the strengths of innovation and creativity of the team but most significantly the importance of lighting as the creator of nocturnal landmark architecture.” commented Dean Skira the receipt of this distinguished Award.⠀
