Lighting magazine recently celebrated 40 years in publication and to mark the occasion, at the Lighting Design Awards published a list of the 40 most promising lighting designers under 40. We are very happy to announce that Light Bureau’s Associate Designer Joe Vose was included in this prestigious list of international designers.
Drawing up the list, Lighting Magazine acknowledges the contribution of a new generation of lighting designers who are “more driven, diverse, collaborative, curious, global, tech-savvy and passionate” than ever before.
Joe Vose says “I feel extremely honoured to be included amongst the quality of individuals on this list. I’m grateful that my contribution has been recognised in this way. It’s also a credit to those close to me who have supported and inspired me to aim higher. It’s part of my nature to look forward, and I hope that the next group of 40 under 40 will look to exceed the collective achievements of my peer group and to continue to push the boundaries of our profession.”
Joe has made a growing contribution to the London and International lighting scene, speaking at events such as the ILP’s ‘How to Be Brilliant’ series, Surface Design Show’s ‘Light School’, PLDC in Rome, the forthcoming IALD Enlighten conference in Mexico this Autumn and creating the #MakeSomeLights workshop series. As well as contributing significantly to life at Light Bureau, Joe was the lead designer for the CMS office project with MCM Architecture and KKS, which recently won the BCO ‘Best Fit Out Award’ London & SE region.
Paul Traynor says ” In a growing profession it has become ever harder to stand out from other lighting designers, but Joe has distinguished himself by being an innovator and resourceful contributor within our industry. We’re proud of him and we are happy that his talents have been recognised by other people beyond Light Bureau and our clients, who continue to trust in his ideas and judgment.”
