K Lamp Rendering Competition

Design Burger x Vitamin x KeyShot

20 / 03 / 2023

In collaboration with KeyShot and London-based interior brand Vitamin, we are launching our very own design & rendering competition. Vitamin will be releasing the original CAD from the product’s formulation 10 years ago, with 5 x K Lamps available to the winners and 2 x KeyShot Pro Licences, after being judged by a panel of top designers and industry leaders.

The Brief

The brief is simple, Vitamin would love to see how you would re-imagine the K-Lamp whilst retaining the lamps’ iconic identity, putting your twist on the product, whether that’s in its CMF or an environment you imagine for the lamp. It is totally up to you.


Simply follow @vitamin_living and @keyshot3d and @design_burger on Instagram, submit your design via our Submit page with the project title ‘dbxvitaminxkeyshot’, and post your design on Instagram using the hashtag #dbxvitaminxkeyshot. The competition is open from now until April 10th, 2023. Can’t enter the contest? We still want to see your designs! Share it with us using the hashtag #dbxvitaminxkeyshot.
