lightfair 2015: embedded lighting

I’m presenting a 90 minute session at the upcoming Lightfair 2015, titled “Embedded Lighting: The Future of Integrating Lighting into Architectural Systems.

My session brief:

Lighting has historically been fragile, dangerous, objectified. Yet new technologies are being developed to permit lighting systems to be embedded directly into architectural surfaces. This session will survey current embedded lighting systems and how specifiers can use these immediately. We will then explore how new technologies such as conductive inks, flexible electronics, digital fabrication and eco-friendly materials may fuse together to drive future innovation, including the impact on architectural system detailing, maintenance and life-cycle considerations. The session is targeted at creative designers with an eye for “what’s next”.

The session is on Thursday, 07-May-2015, bright and early at 8:30am.  I hope you all can join!  And I’ll make sure to have a bowl of Advil on hand to help nurse all your hangovers…LFI is back in the Big Apple, after all!
