During this years event, the MissNightingale© lamps were proudly exhibited alongside other sustainable lifestyle products at Yksi – Next Way of Living, Cartoni Design and De Luytervelde restaurant.
Annet van Egmond also joined the Women in Tech Conference at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, to share new insight into the influence that Women are gaining in the field of Technology and Sustainable Design.


To preview the event, Annet van Egmond was invited for a presentation at het Hoofdkantoor, a popular design boutique in Bussum, where she told the story to an audience of influential female professionals and enthusiasts in sustainable design products, the journey of how she overcame obstacles in the manufacturing, engineering and product design process to bring her new Miss Nightingale lamps to the world.

This year, Dutch Design Week was especially focussed on Hi-tech, Sustainable products and materials. This was very beneficial for gaining exposure for the Miss Nightingale© lamps, that are produced using recyclable plastics and features solar charging technology with energy efficient LED with four modes of lighting for up to 60 hours.

There was also a lot of interest in the Miss Solar Light mission for Nature, where Annet van Egmond expanded on what motivated her new start-up which involved her shift from producing exclusive lighting sculptures for hi-profile clients from Rappers to Royalty, to more eco-friendly lighting that’s more accessible, sustainable and conscious of our social responsibility to our Planet.

A special highlight of the occasion was the first Women in Tech Conference at the Hi-tech University of Eindhoven, with an impressive attendance of 300 Women that included inspiring presentations by speakers who joined the VIP dinner where the discussion continued regarding the Miss Solar Light campaign, in co-operation with WWF, to use sales of the Miss Nightingale Lamp to fund Nature conservation at the Southern African Wildlife College as one of their Ambassadors.
