12 speakers not to miss at LuxLive 2020 Digital Festival

November 5th, 2020 | Latest News | 0 Comments

The line-up of speakers has been named for next week’s LuxLive 2020 Digital Festival and includes world class designers Mark Major, Dean Skira and Robyn Goldstein, scientists Christopher Cuttle and Stephen Lockley, and tech innovators Sami Salomaa and Szymon Slupik. 

LuxLive Digital Festival – which takes place on Wednesday 11 November and Thursday 12 November 2020 –  will have a central theme of Health and Wellbeing and is divided into four main strands: Emergency Lighting, Smart Lighting, Workplace and Lightspace, focusing on lighting in architecture.

Each strand will take centre stage at certain times throughout the festival and will deliver compelling content.

Here’s the top 10 speakers not to miss:

1 MARK MAJOR

Mark Major, co-founder and director of London-based lighting design practice Speirs + Major will explore his relighting of the 900-year-old Norwich Cathedral at 1.20pm on Thursday 12 November.

2 DEAN SKIRA

Dead Skira, director of Skira Architectural Lighting, will present a session called ‘The simple Trick that created a dramatic office exterior’ and in it he will look at the clever use of an exterior ‘blade’ fitting to create a dramatic and dynamic lighting installation at a prominent office development in Zagreb.

The design used IP-rated fittings with 360 degree blade optics – the iGuzzini Trick luminaires – to illuminate the brise soleil, which in turn acts as a secondary reflector. The talk takes place on Thursday 12 November at 2pm.

3 ROBYN GOLDSTEIN

Robyn Goldstein of HLB Lighting Design will walk us through the lighting at the global headquarters of cybersecurity firm Akamai Technologies in Massachusetts at 11.40am on Thursday 12 November.

Drawing inspiration from the idea of network connectivity, the Akamai HQ features a concept that begins in the lobby, with lines of light guiding people throughout the 19-story building along a continuous mile-long path, known as the ‘AkaMile’.

This high-concept design is both visually stunning and energy efficient, designed to both LEED v4 and WELL v2 Gold certification levels.

4 CHRISTOPHER CUTTLE

Christopher ‘Kit’ Cuttle, the well-known lighting scientist and educator, will argue that it’s time to replace the lumen in his presentation at 12.40pm on Thursday 12 November.

The lumen, a measure of lighting since the 1920s, is outdated and needs to be replaced – but with what? Cuttle will explain why the notion of a fundamental unit of light is no longer tenable and how it could be revised.

5 & 6 STEVEN LOCKLEY AND SAMI SALOMAA

Steven Lockley, associate professor of medicine in the sleep medicine department at Harvard Medical School will discuss ‘why circadian lighting is important’ with Sami Salomaa, the founder of Nordic lighting startup Light Cognitive, at 2.10pm on Wednesday 11 November.

Dr Lockley and Salomaa discuss how we can benefit from circadian lighting.  Circadian lighting is smarter and more realistic than ever before – allowing us to benefit from convincing artificial skylights and natural light features in all spaces.

7 SZYMON SLUPIK

Szymon Slupik, CTO and co-founder at Silvair will join Alan Jackson, ‘chief evangelist’ at Helvar and Paul Drosihn, general manager of The DALI Alliance (DiiA) in a panel discussion entitled: DALI-2® and Bluetooth® mesh: A game changer?’

The organisations behind Bluetooth mesh and the DALI-2® protocols have worked together on a specification for a standard interface, allowing DALI® light fittings to talk to Bluetooth mesh wireless lighting controllers and accelerating the development of intelligent and connected lighting systems.

8 LARA JIAD

Lara Jiad, associate in the lighting team at WSP, will explore street data and connectivity.

Jiad currently has a number of trail sites in the UK looking at highway sensors that monitor drainage to help local authorities with maintenance.

9 SOPHIE PARRY

Sophie Parry, technical applications consultant at the Society of Light and Lighting, will give a vital and timely presentation on emergency lighting entitled: ‘Your responsibilities under the law’. She will run though our current obligations to ensure compliance in terms of emergency lighting standards, testing and maintenance, including the new ‘points of emphasis’ additions to the regulations. It takes place on Wednesday 11 November at 9.30am.

10 RUTH KELLY WASKETT

Hoare Lea associate Ruth Kelly Waskett will explore lighting for productivity and wellness and outline a comparison briefing for end users. She will answer questions such as: What is difference between colour-tuneable lighting and circadian lighting and how do they apply in a workplace? What are the measurable benefits to occupants of using these systems? Are they worth the investment in terms of productivity?

Colour-tuneable white LEDs are currently fashionable for offices – but do they deliver any real circadian benefits?

Kelly will explore the issue with reference to real-world installations.

11 & 12 ELETTRA BORDONARO AND MANEL KHALE

Bordonaro and Khale will explore ‘light and the social impact’ in a special ‘Women in Lighting’ session.

Bordonaro, the founder and creative director of Light Follows Behaviour, will discuss how light enables us to evaluate the inequalities in public space and how it can be a vehicle to improve the society we live in.

Khale, of Makali Design, will speak specifically on a ground roots project using solar lighting to tackle problems caused by the recent devastation in Beirut.

 

In addition to the headline acts, the event will also offer sponsored keynote presentations as well as case studies and interactive learning.

The Emergency Lighting strand includes presentations of the responsibilities of building owners under the law, how to do a risk assessment, emergency lighting for social housing, how to manage emergency lighting across an estate and emergency lighting controls.

The Smart Lighting stream sponsored by Bluetooth will look at how to monitor social distancing using the lights, how circadian lighting transformed life at a Derby care home, the lighting controls behind the City of London become a ‘smart city’, the compatibility of DALI-2 and Bluetooth mesh and what it means for lighting control, and how street lights that monitor air quality and footfall.

The Workplace track will focus on lighting for productivity and wellness. Seminars will explore how to light to the WELL v2™ pilot standard as well as some high profile case studies.

The event will also allow one-to-one meeting facilities, roundtable discussions, video presentations, live polling and Q&A sessions throughout.

The popular Lux Awards will close the festival as it makes its digital debut edition in the award’s celebrated history.

LuxLive is being supported by Bluetooth, Thorlux Lighting, the Lighting Industry Association, the Society of Light and Lighting, the Institution of Lighting Professionals, Women in Lighting, the Wi-Sun Alliance, Helvar and the  Digital Illumination Interface Alliance.

LuxLive 2020 postponed until November 2021

July 8th, 2020 | Latest News | 0 Comments

Today, 8th July, Clarion Events, owner of Revo Media, announced that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on large scale events, that the LuxLive 2020 trade exhibition will be postponed until November 2021.

In the absence of clear indication from the Government on the timeline for a return to large scale exhibitions, the UK has seen a continual postponing and cancelling of trade shows across all sectors.

The organisers of LuxLive believe that even if a green light is provided to run trade shows this year, there is not enough time remaining to deliver the high quality event that the industry expects and deserves.

However, the organisers are pleased to announce that in the absence of a physical LuxLive trade event, it is launching two exciting new digital events, scheduled to take place in September and November.

Taking place on September 22nd will be a special LuxLive Digital Kicker Conference on the timely and urgent topic of UV-C lighting and its role in helping building managers ensure the highest levels of safety and wellbeing.

Taking place during the original LuxLive dates of 11th and 12th November will be the LuxLive Digital Festival, representing the most ambitious and comprehensive digital education programme ever seen in the industry.

The festival will have a central theme of Health and Wellbeing.

Stressing that the lighting industry has a huge opportunity to be seen as a major facilitator of health and wellbeing to communities and societies, the organisers of the LuxLive Digital Festival have announced four strands to the event – Emergency Lighting, Smart Lighting, Workplace and the Lightspace Festival, focusing on lighting in architecture.

Each strand will take centre stage at certain times throughout the two-day festival and will deliver compelling educational headline content.

In addition to the headline acts, the festival will also offer sponsored keynote presentations as well as case studies and interactive learning.

The event will also allow one-to-one meeting facilities, roundtable discussions, video presentations, live polling and Q&A sessions throughout.

The popular Lux Awards will close the festival as it makes its digital debut edition in the award’s celebrated history.

James Samuel, Portfolio Director, Clarion Events stated: “It is obviously disappointing that running LuxLive in it physical state will not be possible this year.

Having seen so many events in the sector cancelled or postponed there was a real sense of excitement about bringing the industry together in November.

Unfortunately the Government’s current position where no restart date has been given to large events means that running the physical event is not going to be possible.

However, in preparation for this scenario the team has been working hard to ensure that the industry can still come together.

I am delighted that LuxLive will still bring the great and the good of the lighting industry to share, connect, learn and motivate each other through the LuxLive Digital Festival in November and prior to that via the very topical LuxLive Digital Kicker conference on UV-C Lighting.”

On the announcement of the event’s themes, Samuel added: “The topic of health and wellbeing is so important now more so than ever.

I am really looking forward to sharing with the industry our headline speakers, and other compelling initiatives that will allow the LuxLive Digital Festival to play a significant part in the lighting industry calendar.

In addition, I cannot think of a better way to finish the festival with the iconic Lux Awards where the industry can take time to celebrate outstanding achievement in what has been a very challenging year.

LuxLive will be different this year but what remains is our commitment to provide unparalleled learning, discovery and connections.

We invite everyone to be part of our digital gathering to really promote how the lighting industry will take the lead in providing health, wellbeing and safety to our communities and societies at large.”

Jordan Reflectors Limited

Frost-UV anti-viral luminaires from Jordan Reflectors Limited

This attractive recessed luminaire offers effective general lighting for many commercial, educational, healthcare and retail applications and incorporates two LED modules providing UVc radiation at 270nm. These UVc modules are controlled by a micro-wave presence detector ensuring the UVc is automatically switched off when someone enters the area therefore avoiding potential health risks associated with the invisible UVc radiation. The Frost-UV also features blue LEDs to indicate that the UVc modules are operating.

The kill rate depends upon the distance between the luminaires and the working surface; the type and density of bacteria/viral particles; the material and texture of the surface; and the length of time the UVc radiation is present.

Architecture + Technology Innovation Award

October 9th, 2020 | Latest News | 0 Comments

Design, texture, mood, body and function – the key factors with which luminaires, lighting components, electrical technology and house and building automation influenced the judges were many, varied and, in some cases, surprising.

This year saw the 21st edition of the ‘Architecture+Technology Innovation Award’ organised by architecture journals ‘AIT’ and ‘XIA by AIT’ in cooperation with the building-technologies events of Messe Frankfurt, ISH and Light + Building, in Frankfurt am Main.

A total of 39 products were entered and, on 1 October 2020, it was the job of an expert jury to select the winners in the fields of architecture and interior architecture. By the end of an intensive day, they had chosen the recipients for an Innovation Award, two special mentions and six honourable mentions.

The Architecture+Technology Innovation Award is aimed at designers and manufacturers of innovative materials and products and emphasises the importance of architectural quality when it comes to luminaires, lighting components, electrical technology and house and building automation. “This quality forms a solid basis for a successful result”, says publishing manager Kristina Bacht. She adds: “Interestingly, quality cannot be measured solely by digital means. The jury examined each product with regard to materiality, weight and surface texture. Accordingly, it benefited from a variety of different perspectives.”

From the numerous products available on the market, the winners were those that correspond to a particularly high degree with the needs of architects and interior architects. The Architecture+Technology Innovation Award honours conceptual solutions for selected objects and products that are convincing in terms of design and functionality. Important criteria for the judging also include material authenticity and the spectrum of potential areas of application.

Moving images

The judging of the Architecture+Technology Innovation Award was captured on film and includes many interesting images and statements by the judges. (English version comes soon).

www.light-building.com/innovation-award

The awards will be presented during personal appointments with the winners in the autumn of 2020. All entries will be published in a special section of AIT 12-2020.
