About us



Team IGNITE is a student team with currently 40 students from the Eindhoven University of Technology and the Fontys. Together, they form a community of people who design and build lighting installations. 

We want to show the world the potential of light, and what influence it has on human behavior. We combine light, tech and design in light installations, with the purpose of bringing people together by creating sustainable, interactive, innovative and magical light art. All our projects include the following three elements: they bring people together, they focus on problems in society, and they make use of technologies in ways they have never been used before. 

Nowadays, we are a student community with a management team and multiple light design projects. We stimulate our team members to help each other out, to share knowledge and to cocreate. The team aims to create a safe environment where community members can explore and improve their technical, design, and management skills. The most unique aspect of the team is that we collaborate intensively with the BrainPort area, by designing solutions for light design challenges for a great variety of stakeholders, and by collaborating with other businesses in the realization of our projects.

Mission & Vision


Our mission is to create an active and engaging student light community, which collaborates with stakeholders from the BrainPort area (and beyond).  We want to show the potential of light and the influence that it has on human behavior, by working on a diverse range of light projects that aim to redesign the environment using light. We combine light, tech and design in light installations, with the purpose of bringing people together.


Student team IGNITE is a team of students that fully focus on light and its social impact. Our ambitions are to show the world the potential of light and to show how light influences our lives.

We do many different projects. In 2018 we started with Loop for GLOW, the next year we made Hypar. After a pause of 2 years, we returned with something completely new.  This was Ballroom; an experience where people could dance with light. And now, in 2022, we have presented 3 different projects on GLOW. Down below you can see an overview of the projects so far.
