Session Survey
Lighting product design is experiencing a period of creativity and growth as new designs and technologies bring more options to designers and end users. Both architectural and residential lighting products are seeing tremendous innovation in manufacturing methods like 3D printing; controls and systems integration; new forms and systems driven by the unique characteristics of solid state technology; radically new materials that challenge the traditional dominance of metal, plastic and glass; and in a growing understanding of not just biophillic or biomorphic elements, but of deep biomimetic design. This talk will explore the process of designing individual luminaires and connected systems, while incorporating strategies like mass customization, circular economy, and sustainable manufacturing.
