Free space for light designers at Tent London

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
