With the new year around the corner, we are thrilled to share with you the outcome of our research-in-practice project on sustainable lighting design!
This publication is intended to provide knowledge in the areas of daylighting and electric light planning and the integration of both in practice with the aim of achieving a high quality of light fitted for users' needs at minimal environmental impact, referred to in this report as 'sustainable lighting design'.
The final report presents selected information about state-of-the-art research in the field, gives suggestions for how these topics can be integrated into practice and presents case studies from third parties as well as conclusions from studies carried out by the authors.
With this publication, we intend to inspire those who work or plan to work with lighting design to reflect on the decisions they make throughout the design process. We hope that, in some way, it will inspire them to find new ways to continue searching for sustainable solutions and share them with the lighting design community.
The time has come to seize this opportunity to provide better lighting for all – lighting that improves our quality of life, performance and health and causes the least possible harm to the planet.
We would like to thank everyone who took the time to be part of this project, it has been an amazing journey, and we could not have done it alone. Special thanks to Marina Roa and SenseTribe for the 5 main illustrations, including the beautiful cover image . We would also like to thank Belysningsstiftelsen for their trust in us and for financing this project.
