Can I Learn About Lighting Tech @ #SGID17?

Can I Learn About Lighting Tech @ #SGID17?

Technologies for and around lighting continue to develop, with potentially game-changing effects on how we interact with and experience light. But what is the take-up rate? What do clients, building users and designers want today when it comes to lighting design? What’s most important to each stakeholder group? How is new technology altering our encounters with light? And how well are the experiential qualities of lighting surviving the technological evolution?

 Indesign Media Asia has invited four lighting industry leaders to discuss these questions and provide insights on lighting design today at Singapore Indesign 2017’s Design Conversation titled ‘Interacting with Light and Data’.

 Get to know our industry leaders:
