Interior design student Emma Hille won the European Product Design Award in the "Students" category with her "moborm" luminaire design on the topic of "Interactive Lighting Projects" in the "Illumination" category alongside nine other students. Her submitted mobile, rod-shaped indoor and outdoor luminaire with a simple, robust design functions in a modular way thanks to magnetic connections. Emma Hille developed the "moborm" luminaire as a free project in the 2022 summer semester and was supervised by Prof. Gerd Baron.
For the European Product Design Award 2022, individual design projects, which were finally selected by a jury of around 20 experts in the summer of 2022, could be submitted for an entry fee. In addition to a certificate, the winners will appear in the yearbook of the European Product Design Award 2022 and may use the award seal for their submitted project. The worldwide competition is organised by the Farmani Group, an organisation that promotes photography, design and architecture.
Emma Hille also took second place in the university's internal "KickStart" ideas competition, organised by the Robert Schmidt Institute at Wismar University of Applied Sciences, with her "moborm" luminaire. The award ceremony took place recently, on Thursday 29th September 2022, on the Wismar University Campus in the StartUpYard.
