For the inaugural darc awards / decorative, Applelec created illuminated award trophies based on a design by Light iQ's along with art deco themed event invitations.

Glowing trophies were designed by Light iQ for darc awards / decorative.

Manufactured by Applelec to a concept by Light iQ's Jenny Bland, the award trophies feature the same design as last September's darc awards / architectural.

The cubed trophies were created with multiple pieces of acrylic, layered vertically to create a floating infinity effect. The optically clear acrylic sheets were etched with the darc awards / decorative logo and brought to life with Applelec's LED Light Sheet.

The integration of the light panel surrounded each trophy in light and subtly highlighted the cube design of the awards. Completing the design of the trophies, the awards were wrapped with brushed stainless steel and engraved with the winning category details.

Sandi Moolman, Applelec's business development manager, said: 'We're delighted to have contributed our manufacturing capabilities to another successful darc awards event. The design by Light iQ is very special and the trophies looked wonderful as little lights around the venue.'

The ceremony took place at the Bloomsbury Ballroom on Thursday 18th May, where Sandi Moolman presented the award for Best Decorative Floor Standing Fixture. Congratulations to all the winners, we hope you like your glowing trophies!
