I’m currently in the throes of preparing course content for my Griffith College students for the new term starting next month. Looking at the material for my first lecture on lighting history, it is so impressive the explosion of lighting creativity at the end of the 19th Century, start of 20th. Electric lighting arrived on the scene with Thomas Edison’s light bulb in 1870. And was followed a myriad of new lighting technologies, and professions.
It’s looking like 2019 will be one of our most exciting and interesting years. At the heart of what we do is bring stunning design and designer lead lighting products to our customers. With that in mind we’ll be working hard in 2019 to bring new exclusive brands and light products to you. Our team will be hitting the biggest and best shows in Europe as well as travelling to visit the designers and crafters of the stunning lighting we supply.
LZF’s new campaign “Telling Tales” is inspired by the works of the painter Edward Hopper. Their 1950’s photoshoot was the coming together of a novelist, a design studio, a stylist and a film industry to create a collection of illuminated stories.
The office fitout sector is really moving in Ireland at the moment, and one topic is coming up more and more as we talk to architectural and engineering consultants. It’s the question of LEED certification and designing lighting for LEED. It’s something I’ve been looking into for a little while and I’m currently preparing for my LEED Associate exam.
