Cundall lighting shines at the Australian Design Awards

Australia 06 February 2024

2024 is off to a brilliant start for Cundall’s Australian Lighting team, with three Silver Awards in the Better Future Awards Australian Design Awards 2024 lighting design category.

Sydney Harbour Art House with Michelle Astudillo Interior Design was a highly bespoke residential lighting design, which including a clever smart lighting solution to enable the homeowners to flexibly customise illumination lighting for their priceless collection of artworks. The project also won a Silver Award in the Sydney Design Awards 2023, a LIT Award in 2022 and was also a finalist in the prestigious international d[arc] Awards in 2022.

The 99 Mount Street EOT project with Nettleton Tribe demonstrated the effectiveness of intelligent, human-centred lighting in strategic retrofit interventions to help reposition an ageing commercial workplace. In addition to the Australian Design Awards win, the project received a Gold Award in the Sydney Design Awards 2023 and has won other accolades including kudos in the IES and d[arc] awards.

Burra burawa birrung gili (eel above countless generations of starlight) by Cundall with Uncle Jim Carrol and First Nations artist Matt Fellingham, for the City of Paramatta, is a dramatic place-making intervention to bring light, colour and First Nations narratives to a previously underwhelming laneway in the heart of Parramatta’s dining district.

“I believe awards such as the Better Future Awards showcase the power of illumination to bring delight, curiosity, connection and a sense of belonging that weaves an element of enhanced wellbeing into the urban fabric,” said Cundall Australia Associate and Head of Lighting, Bettina Easton.

“All three of these projects emerged from a process of considering the human experience within a space or a place, and how light can augment and enhance those moments. Seeing them recognised for design excellence is always a source of pride for our team, and also, we hope, a source of pride for the clients who have commissioned our expertise.”
