Report on the warm-up in Paris/F
The first of a series of warm-ups leading up to PLDC 2017 took place in Paris.
Newly confirmed Platinum Partner iGuzzini, together with the French lighting designers’ association ACE, hosted around 70 guests.
The networking opportunity included a presentation by Emrah Baki Ulas, lighting designer and former PLDC speaker. Emrah shared an updated version of his “Nineteen short stories on how little we know about light”, which he formerly presented at PLDC.
The President of ACE, Sara Castagné, together with Virginie Nicolas presented the association’s activities in the course of the coming 15 months in preparation for PLDC and at the event itself.
In the next few weeks a writing workshop will take place to coach and encourage members of ACE to submit proposals for papers when the official Call for Papers is released on 1. September. A further highlight was the presentation of a recently published French-English dictionary on Lighting Design comprised specifically in preparation for PLDC in Paris. The first ten copies were available at the warm-up.
