We just returned from beautiful Porto, being awarded for the Feel the Planet Earth CIFIAL design award!!!
The award was nominated to our team “Lumen“, for the design of the Moonlight. A solar-powered LED lantern, we designed last year in Cambodia for the rural population of the country. The lantern was designed for Kamworks, a company specialized in providing affordable energy systems in Cambodia. This is the second time Moonlight is awarded, after the Toonvantuijl design prize at the Dutch Design Awards.
We all hope that the third prize, and most important, will come from the people; now that the Moonlight is coming to the market 😉
