Light and its effect on human beings – how much responsibility a lighting designer has

Light and its effect on human beings – how much responsibility a lighting designer has

Since 2001, we know that light also has non-visual effects on human beings. Continuing research shows that lighting designers can influence users’ feeling of well-being in architectural spaces. How do we practise in this new and evolving field, which is blurring the lines between lighting specifications capable of behavioural and biological manipulation, and those defined for delivering light for visual acuity alone?

Confirmed as taking part in this discussion are:

Prof. Michael Rohde, University of Applied Science, Wismar/DE and L-Plan, Berlin/DE

Deborah Burnett, Benya Burnett Lighting Design/US

Dr. Sergei Gephstein/US, Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Dr. John Lincoln, LightAware trustee

Further experts have been invited and pre-registered.

The discussion will take place on Saturday, 4. November, 2017 at 13.30 in the PLD Alliance lounge.
