Dezeen Awards 2019 judge Danilo Mandelli

Danilo Mandelli is director of lighting design brand Delta Light.

Italian designer Danilo Mandelli uses the role of light to highlight its importance to architecture. Developing bespoke lighting solutions and consultations, Belgian company Delta Light has collaborated with internationally acclaimed architects and designers from hinged tubular fixtures with OMA, streetlights by Dean Skira adaptable for various urban environments and Arik Levy’s mushroom-like fixtures for his Butler collection.

Mandelli's project management and creative solutions for high-profile projects have highlighted his talent in design consultancy, where he has been invited to speak at events such as Dubai Design Week in 2017 and NextGen Design Forum.

Last year, the brand worked with architect Sarah Izod to create a series of light installations for the Dezeen Awards 2018 ceremony.
