    Burlington Sessions #2: A New Language of Lighting

     

    Listen to Lighting Designers and Artists to find out more about their passions on lighting architecture.

    A New Language of Lighting intro

    Signify Design and Lighting Academy hosted the 2nd edition of the Burlington Sessions, a CoCreate aimed at bringing together lighting artists & designers that inspire us, push the limits, and create a new language of lighting. This is a small group, by invitation only, of internationally recognized disruptors leading the way into the future of lighting.

     

    These sessions are very hands-on, Signify shared some of the solutions we are developing in a very early stage, our guests were able to experiment and explore, and share their ideas on what/how would these concepts work for them and their customers.
