Lighting in Design Q2 2018

Light + Building, the biennial architectural design and technology trade fair focused on the fields of lighting, electrical engineering, building automation, and civil-engineering software, is seen as a forerunner for the industry – much like the latest motor vehicle designs and nifty additions at auto shows, what emerges at the fair as a latest innovation, tends to filter through the industry over the next few years, as the standard.

Lighting in Design Feb March 2018Light Fidelity (LiFi) technology was invented in 2005 by Suat Topsu, president of Oledcomm – a global leader in LiFi solutions, and is a new technology that enables wireless connections between mobile devices and other networked devices using LED lights to carry data. LiFi provides data transmission by imperceptibly modulating the light emitted by an LED light. The resulting data connection is ultra-fast, secure and free of harmful electromagnetic emissions. Light signals are received and converted into data by a LiFi dongle connected to the mobile device.

LightinginDesign AugSep 2017For the founder of Lightemotion, Francois Roupinian, 180 Wellington is an important lighting design project. It is one of the first illumination projects within the Master Plan for the Parliamentary Precinct of Ottawa to be completed, and demonstrates what the capital aspires to portray; a lighting plan that brings the subtlety of grand architecture to light and sets the tone for a luminous environment at night.

Lighting in Design June 2017In his article, Contemporary trends in lighting design, Paul Pamboukian makes the point that the lighting industry is relatively young. When we consider this, and the fact that for much of lighting’s 130-odd year history the incandescent lamp was the prime light source, we can only be amazed at the transition of the industry in the past twenty or so years. As Pamboukian says, like a whirlwind, the solid state revolution has changed our lives.

LightinginDesign FebMarch 2017Although there are instances where flicker from a light source can be desirable – the flicker of candlelight is one such example and, to be honest, the only one I can think of – for the most part it is annoying and, in some cases, debilitating. Electronic ballasts virtually eliminated the infuriating flicker that was for years the curse of many workplaces, but an old problem has been made new again in the age of LEDs.
