LED-Incorporated Lighting
Light of the future, light of hope
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the people affected by the 2011 Great Eastern Tohoku Earthquake. From that date forward, we have been able to reflect upon many things. In the midst of electricity blackouts, we were able to recall and consider the times which were lit. We repeatedly kept the importance and value of light in our hearts and minds.

The Architectural Lighting Design Competition has been upon us five times. This year, XXIV UIA World Congress: UIA Tokyo 2011, will be held. Thus, we are extending invitations for participation globally. The theme will be gLED-Incorporated Lightingh. As everyone is well aware, LED lighting is energy-efficient, and has a long lifespan which is expected to be a predominant source of lighting. We look forward to your ideas which will be considered with a view towards mass production. As a basis of the expression of freedom, please consider LEDs- the light of the future and light of hope.
