Countless designers have tackled the problem of lighting, trying to obtain satisfying light quality and quantity for objects that are decorative as well as functional, with pleasing forms, easy to put together, easy to purchase, materials that neither deteriorate nor yellow with age, objects that offer themselves as magical light sculptures.

The contestants had to make a lamp of Tyvek, a polyethylene material that filters the light in approximately the same way as opal glass and plastic.
