Lighting Design is a complex discipline, but fortunately there is a raft of people out there trying to help you understand what on earth all this stuff means. There are several lighting trade fairs in the UK where speakers will lecture on all sorts of aspects of lighting design practice and technology. Along with others from the industry I will be presenting at Light School, a lighting education initiative presented by Light Collective and hosted by the Surface Design Show at The Business Design Centre Islington, 4-6th February 2014. (www.light-school.co.uk).
Apart from this type of direct presentation, there is a huge amount of information on the internet. Large companies like Zumtobel, Erco and iGuzzini tend to have reference sections in their websites where you can find out about general lighting topics as well as their own products. There are plenty of places to find inspiration too. Try our updates page at www.mindseye3d.com/updates to find out what we are getting excited about today.
