Task Lighting invited interior designers, architects, builders, remodelers and other NKBA-certified trade professionals to submit photos of their personal favorite projects for a chance to win up to $3,000. The contest ran from May 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, and winners were selected by a panel of design professionals including Jay Bartek, General Manager of Task Lighting. 

“It has been such a pleasure to see how our Task Lighting enthusiasts love to utilize our products in beautiful and unique ways,” said Bartek. “We want to again thank the many entrants who took the time to submit their favorite project for consideration in our first-ever contest!”

The first place winner for a prize of $3,000 was Fabian Vacca, who displayed LED Tape Lighting in every possible square foot of a stunning kitchen. Vacca remodeled the winning kitchen by refacing all of the cabinets then adding Task Lighting both inside and underneath the cabinets as well as in the toe kick to highlight the brilliance of the kitchen. Additionally, Vacca helped save the backsplash in the kitchen by utilizing the Angle Power Strip. 

Second Place – Kelly Fanta, Crystal Paisley Cabinet Design, Cincinnati, Ohio

Coming in second place for a prize of $2,000 was Kelly Fanta with a kitchen that utilized upper cabinet LED Tape Lighting and the Lighted Power Strip to protect the ornate backsplash. The display island’s unique wood paneling was also protected by Fanta’s use of the Angle Power Strip. 

Third Place – Kristi Williams, McManus Kitchen and Bath, Tallahassee, Florida

The third place winner of $1,000 was Kristi Williams of McManus Kitchen and Bath. When Williams started this kitchen remodel, she found her client had previously used off-brand under cabinet lighting that worked inconsistently. So, when she remodeled the kitchen, Williams replaced the prior under cabinet lighting with Lighted Power Strip Fixtures and she added Angle Power Strip Fixtures to the new kitchen island. Then as a final touch, Williams included LED Tape Lighting above the cabinets.  

Honorable Mention – Danielle Cambre, DC Home Interiors, New Orleans, Louisiana

Finally, the $500 Honorable Mention winner was Danielle Cambre who truly showcased the ability of RGB Tape Lighting’s micro-waterproof coating in a Master Bathroom addition to an existing home. Cambre’s client wanted to have mood and accent lighting whether they were showering or relaxing in the bathtub. They also added color-changing RGB Tape Lighting to the bathroom cabinet’s toe kick. 

Task Lighting’s team was thrilled by the photos received during this contest and would like to extend congratulations to each winner for creating such beautiful spaces for their customers then capturing these images.
