Interior design student Poormehr Honarmand won Luraline Product Co.'s second annual “It's Your Light” student design competition for his concept for a lighting fixture that becomes part of the architecture of a building.

Honarmand, 24, of the Columbus College of Art and Design, in Columbus, Ohio, took top honors for the luminous “Lucent,” an interior fixture for indoor lighting in hospitality applications.

“Lucent curves in an arc from the ceiling to the wall and appears to be an architectural support,” said Honarmand. “It's meant to be installed in multiples to further enhance the structural shape of the space, whether in a hotel, restaurant or bar.”

The contest jury chose “Lucent” from more than 100 entries it received from interior design schools and universities. Honarmand received a $1,500 prize. “Not only was his design a true original,” said Luraline President Howard Levine, “but it had real potential to be developed into a lighting fixture with great appeal for the hospitality market.”

The annual “It's Your Light” competition solicits concepts for interior, exterior, commercial and residential lighting fixtures from design and architecture students throughout the United States. For more details, please call (800) 940-6588 or visit
