Two CBB designers honored: Lighting Magazine’s “40 under 40”

CBB’s Jeff Hoenig (Associate) and Monica Llamas (Designer) were celebrated at the Lighting – Illumination in Architecture Magazine 40 under 40 North America award event on March 12, 2018. The UK-based publication selected 40 young lighting designers as winners of the award, from over 120 competition entries submitted by designers across the continent. This category of the magazine’s annual lighting awards recognizes emerging talent – young  designers who are “raising the bar on the creativity and quality of projects around the world.”

To select the winners, the judging panel assessed a range of criteria including educational achievements, project experience and awards, and personal lighting design philosophy. The winners were announced at Lighting Magazine’s awards dinner and gala, held at New York City’s Parker Hotel.

The magazine has commended the group as “representatives of the new generation [of designers], and ambassadors for their industry.” Congratulations, Jeff and Monica – we are so proud that you are part of CBB’s team!

UPDATE, APRIL 10, 2018: Jeff Hoenig has been elected for an additional honor: the 40 under 40 Global Class of 2018, in which Lighting – Illumination in Architecture Magazine recognizes the best young designers worldwide. Congratulations, Jeff!
