Calling lighting designers: Tent London is offering dezeen readers the chance to exhibit FREE in London later this month during the London Design Festival.

Tent London, a new, multi-show event taking place at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane from 20-23 September, is looking for up to six designers for their newly expanded lighting hall.

Accepted designers will get 50-100sq m of exhibition space free of charge. Other exhibitors in the lighting hall include Lionel Theodore Dean of Future Factories, whose Creepers light is shown above.

Interested designers with a ready-to-go installation should contact Jimmy MacDonald at Tent London as per the details below.

Here is the announcement from Tent London:

--

Tent London is hooking up with dezeen to offer 6 lighting designers between 50sqm-100sqm free spaces at Tent London in which to create a lighting installation.

Tent has had overwhelming interest in the lighting area due to the flexible nature of the venue (huge ex-industrial spaces) and would like to formalize this in the form of a lighting hall.

Ideally we are looking for designers with ready made free standing concepts/installations which can be simply relocated to Tent London (2 day set-up period by designer).

The hall is 800 sqm in total and the aim is to show a range of installation illustrating the various approaches to lighting design (lighting design rather than lampshade design).

This offer is aimed at independent designers rather than lighting companies. If you are a company and are interested in showing product please contact us separately.

If you want to be considered for one of the spaces, email jimmy@tentlondon.co.uk with one 300dpi jpeg or PDF by Friday 7th September.

See a 360 degree view of the exhibition space here. It is just one of 13 ex-industrial now exhibition spaces which will be habited by Tent London events this September.

Tent London runs from the 20-23 September 2007 during the London Design Festival and is an independent development of 100% East by the co-founders of 100% Design and 100% East.

Trade visitors can gain FREE entry if you register online by the 14th September 2007 at www.tentlondon.co.uk

    Finally someone is interested in

    “Lighting design rather then lampshade design”

    Hurray!!!

    The amount of people desinging lamp shades and calling them selves lighting designers is crazy. And note: They are not called energy saving bulbs they are “compact fluorescent lamps”.

    Dear Jimmy

    I have only just seen your email. I would love this opportunity and am writing in the hope that you might extend the deadline to today – Please!

    I use found/discarded materials producing sculptural/ambient lighting. My website can be found using google search as I have not entered my website on other search engines yet.

    I previously showed at undo with my Drawing Table and Tumbleweed light.

    Kind regards
