The Art of (Integrated) Lighting Design


Lighting is an important part of interior architecture so it should be integral from the start of a project. Lighting can transform spaces; it can affect mood and create comfort and unique experiences. This program features three experts sharing their knowledge about well-integrated lighting design. Designers will lead virtual tours of their projects and discuss the use of lighting design in projects or present about a specific feature lighting in a project. Join IAKC in this inspiring design presentation!
