Focus on Integrated Design

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the LIGHTFAIR® International 2014 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 2014 LFI Conference Advisory Committee to recognize the need for the creation of socially responsible, effective and aesthetically pleasing environments.  The LIGHTFAIR 2014 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.

Theme Areas

Inspiration sessions address rule-breakers, creators of new pathways, re-defining the human experience within the built environment.

Technology and Tools sessions address new and innovative elements in areas such as software, sources, luminaire components, controls, alternative/solar energy sources, daylighting and beyond.

Problem-Solving sessions address the process of achieving a viable solution through the successful combination of ideas. Situations may range from business-related issues to technology and design.
