The Local Council of Lissone are promoting a new edition of the Premio Lissone Design that is focused on lighting design. This award initiative follows the widely-acclaimed and very successful first edition of the Premio Lissone Design, whose theme was playing design and the children''s sector, that received 238 qualified applications from 22 countries.

The award is targeted to the generation of new product concepts with precise reference to the lighting market, i.e. the broad range of innovative applications in interior design, furniture accessories and outdoor lighting equipment. The main goal of the award is to bridge the gap between young designers and furniture manufacturers, lighting equipment makers, interior
decorators and city planners. The broader aim of the event is to involve the local manufacturing industry and market makers, in their role as supporters for research and innovation. Considerable emphasis is given to the implementation of new lighting technologies and innovative lighting energy sources.

- Nurture and support young creative minds in the world of design.
- Offer manufacturers new product concepts and new market development opportunities.
- Establish Lissone as an international “center of gravity” at the forefront for creativity and professionalism in the design sector.
- Promote Lissone as an international centre of research, experimentation and prototyping of products related to the world of design.

The proposed theme requires that participants design new product concepts for lighting design and / or lighting equipment, with reference to the field of innovative lighting technologies and its multiple applications in interiors and exterior design.
