NLB Hosts Inaugural Tesla Awards

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Last June, the National Lighting Bureau (NLB) launched its inaugural Tesla Awards. Nine Tesla Awards were given, five of which went to Fisher Marantz Stone:

Staying true to its mission, the NLB created the Tesla Awards to honor lighting projects that provide High-Benefit Lighting®, or lighting that promotes human performance, health, safety, and commerce. Not only do the winning projects showcase the value of lighting, but they also demonstrate the best practices in lighting design, as well as the importance of collaboration.

Initially, the awards were to be presented during LightFair, following the format of a traditional awards show. However, because of the pandemic, the NLB conducted the awards online, giving awardees the chance to speak in-depth about their projects and the challenges associated with them. At the end, the judges were able to ask probing questions in an open-mic format.

Randy Reid, Executive Director stated, “To my knowledge, there has never been a more detailed award presentation in our industry. It is an excellent tool to learn the secrets from some of the best designers in lighting.”
