Be inspired by light at Light School, located within Surface Design Show 2015

For the second year running, Light School will be holding true to its school motto: Inspired by Light, giving its ‘students’ inspiration and ideas on how to use light within spaces and buildings.

Hosted within Surface Design Show, at London’s Business Design Centre between 10-12 February 2015 and presented by Light Collective and the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) is Light School an area dedicated to lighting.

Light and surface are inseparable partners; the interplay between light and surface can change a building’s interior or exterior dramatically creating breath-taking results. Light School consists of three parts: The School Room, Product School and the School Newspaper all of which are designed to educate and inspire visitors about the latest in lighting design and lighting products.

Light School & the School Room:

The aim of Light School is to provide architects and designers with education and knowledge about lighting design and lighting products. The inherent connection between light and surface is addressed providing a platform for the lighting design community to talk to other design sectors.

Sponsored by iGuzzini, there will be more than two days of lessons in the School Room featuring hands-on demos with top UK lighting designers who will be taking on the role of lecturers. The lecture programme includes amongst others Carl Gardner – Lighting for Landscapes; Jeff Shaw – Light & Day; Sally Storey – Hotel Lighting in all Shapes & Sizes; Paul Nulty – Saving the High Street and Doug James – Light & Surfaces.

Product School:

Product School provides architects and designers with a comprehensive review of lighting innovation and interesting technology. Visitors can come to touch, compare and learn about products and services. Product School is made up of contributions from the Friends of Light School who consist of Applelec, Atrium, Spectral, WILA, ANOLIS, Commercial Lighting Systems, Concord, Deltalight, LED Linear, Atrium, iGuzzini, Louis Poulsen, Optelma and Radiant along with the Institution of Lighting Professionals.

As well as supporting the education programme, the Friends of Light School will be setting up their own demo spaces to ensure that everyone can experience the unique and ground-breaking differences that their lighting products can bring to design projects.

School Newspaper:

Every school has a newspaper and Light School is no exception. The School Newspaper, sponsored by Deltalight contains articles on lighting design to help ‘students’ remember what they learnt during their visit and Product School information from the Friends of Light School to inspire future projects. The free newspaper is sent to architects and designers as well as being given to Light School attendees.
