Focus on Integrated Design

The LIGHTFAIR® International 2015 Conference curriculum will champion integrated design as a central theme linking all courses, workshops and seminars in common focus to illustrate how technology, tools, problem-solving and inspiration converge in contemporary practice.

The integrated design focus is advanced by the 2015 LFI Conference Advisory Committee to recognize the need for the creation of socially responsible, effective and aesthetically pleasing environments.  The LIGHTFAIR 2015 Conference will create a vibrant atmosphere in which experts from diverse disciplines come together to present, discuss, debate, exchange and explore best practices and emerging concepts.

Focus Areas/Tracks

The LIGHTFAIR 2015 Conference provides knowledge and perspectives on how a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach can improve design outcomes for the betterment of the human experience through four themes/tracks:

LFI 2015 Focus Areas
  • Inspiration – Rule-breakers, trailblazers and visionaries dramatically influence our industry.  Sessions provide a synthesis of factors from inside and outside of the established lighting community.
  • Applications Research – Scientific analysis related to how we interact with the environment around us informs design.
  • Technology & Tools – Innovative lighting equipment, software, studies and legislation are introduced every year.  Using these elements to shape the design, or enhance and challenge the collaborative process, builds a stronger solution.
  • Methodology – Processes using collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches can result in more effective project solutions.  Working together and exploring diverse methods can streamline these processes.
