Croatian Designer Wins Award for Moscow Evolution Tower Lighting

Lauren Simmonds

Croatian innovation is well known across the world as some of the best. In an ironic twist of fate, Croatia continues to export its brightest minds abroad, allowing them to realise their ideas in countries which recognise the need for less draconian laws, Croatian products which have been made in Croatia continue to receive awards and gain recognition around the globe.

As Lara Bagar/Glas Istre writes on the 14th of August, 2019, as many as eighteen projects were awarded, and Croatian lighting designer Dean Skira’s project was the only one awarded in the category of energy efficiency and environmental protection.

Otherwise, Moscow’s “Evolution Tower”, for which this extremely talented designer from the Istrian city of Pula designed the beautiful lighting, is a project realised for Transneft, Russia’s largest oil company in the world.

Another prestigious award has thus arrived in the light incubator of the Pula designer Dean Skira. The lighting design of the magnificent Evolution Tower in Moscow, designed by Dean Skira and his team, won the prestigious IES Award of Excellence for outstanding contribution to the development of science and art in the field of light design.

The award ceremony took place during the 46th Annual Conference of the International Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), this time in Louisville, USA. Special honours were awarded across various categories for a mere eighteen of the international projects out of 200 selected.

As stated, this talented Croatian designer’s project was the only one of all to have been awarded in the category of energy efficiency and environmental protection.

“We’re proud to contribute to the promotion of our homeland and in such a specialised segment as is lighting design in architecture,” stated Skira’s innovative team.
