UNITE WITH LIGHT slogan glow.png


As Team IGNITE, the first Art & Tech student team in the Netherlands, we focus on displaying the potential of light for societal impact.

This is achieved through the multidisciplinary efforts of students from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Fontys, Avans and the Design Academy. This student community consists of a management team, multiple design projects, forming an ecosystem of students interested in lighting in which knowledge is shared and ideas are co-created with and in assignment of stakeholders from the BrainPort area (and beyond). As a result, a safe environment is created where community members can explore and improve their technical, design, and management skills.

After a kick-start in 2018 through the development of IGNITE’s first installation for GLOW Eindhoven, a foundation was formed to iterate on in the future. As a result, a range of new GLOW projects has been developed with success up until 2022. From evoking an interactive experience while social distancing in pandemic times by dancing with light, to navigating GLOW visitors in an innovative manner. Down below an overview is given of all projects so far. To broaden IGNITE’s impact, we are now busy exploring additional application areas for light design, leading to wonderful new projects and increased societal relevance.
