Bringing you exclusive conversations between leading lighting figures, the Society of Light and Lighting announce new online series in association with Signify

This brand new, online series from the Society of Light and Lighting (SLL) in association with Signify will bring leading figures from the lighting industry together in conversation.

With the volume of webinars currently available, the SLL and Signify want to offer something different. This series will feature prominent lighting figures, engaged in exclusive conversations about their journey in lighting, their specialisms and the key issues which are driving change and innovation. 

This series includes conversations with the likes of Dr Ruth Kelly Waskett FSLL, President of the SLL and Senior Associate at Hoare Lea and Florence Lam FSLL, Global Lighting Design Director for Arup discussing light, health, and humanity-centric lighting.

The aim of this series is to engage the lighting community and beyond in discussion about the work and challenges that face the industry. We wanted to showcase some of the excellent people, initiatives, research and innovative approaches which are informing the direction of change, in the face of political, economic, and environmental uncertainty. 

The series will also include the following topics and speakers:

• Reducing waste and impact through reuse, with a focus on the ongoing Re:Lit project with Roger Sexton FSLL, Stoane Lighting and Michael Grubb FSLL, Creative Director of Michael Grubb Studio

• Circular economy and the development of best practice guidance and assessment methods with Kristina Allison MSLL, Senior Lighting Designer for Atkins and Tim Bowes MSLL, Head of Lighting Applications for Whitecroft Lighting

• Climate-based daylight modelling and the intersection of light, architecture, and human perceptions of wellbeing with Eleonora Brembilla, Assistant Professor at Technical University Delft and Kynthia Chamilothori, Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology

With more speakers to be announced shortly, sessions will be held in October and November, with the option to join live and participate in an interactive Q&A or to catch up on-demand at a time that suits you.
