IALD Western Canada Chapter Gets New Leader in Lorin Bordeville

Lorin Bordeville Lights the Way as IALD Western Canada Chapter Coordinator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 27, 2016 — Vancouver, BC The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) Western Chapter is excited to announce Lorin Bordeville of Vancouver's STUDIOBOX as the new Chapter Coordinator.

With more than a decade in lighting, interior design and mixed-media, Lorin brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to his new role. During the past few years, Lorin has volunteered on several  education and sustainability-driven projects, including lighting design for the Miss Representation Action Group’s screening and town hall with Margaret Atwood, procurement of AGi32 resources for the Wilson School of Design, filming of the Co-creation Workshop at KPU with Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and most recently, interior design support for a Make a Wish Foundation project. 

A student of interior design, Lorin first met the IALD through his love of light in the carving of space - a spark fueled by an award supported by the IALD Trust to take part in Enlighten America.  The IALD Trust would continue to support Lorin's return year-after-year thus feeding his enthusiasm for community engagement.  A champion of participation, he has received awards from the IES, Light Resource, Polygon Homes, General Paint and Herman Miller.  While an undergrad, Lorin and his design partner would be the first Canadian designers to win Durkan's annual D*scover design competition at HD in Las Vegas. Lorin is now excited to give back to the community through his leadership role with the IALD Western Canada Chapter.

Vancouver is a city of cutting edge design –  I’m excited to see how our professional lighting designers will respond to opportunities the IALD can bring to promote them on the world stage. 
Lorin comes from a colourful past in technology, adventure and design. As a senior navigation officer, commercial shipping would provide cultural experiences in the Middle East, the Americas, and throughout the Caribbean. His love of design would lay a foundation for studies in design and construction in Singapore, lighting in Nicaragua, and civic architecture in Chile.

From the outset, Pollock’s work has focused on a desire to create and work with his hands. Today he has become an internationally recognized artist who produces art, furniture and sculpture. His materials of choice are concrete, steel and wood. At the heart of Pollock’s work is a profound commitment to detail, artistic exploration and the latent potential of materials. This is achieved through rational inquiry, spirit of curiosity and continued experimentation. The majority of his work is privately commissioned in British Columbia, Canada and typically rests in high-profile architectural homes.
