Forty seven lighting designers have been interviewed in twelve countries across Asia, Europe and America. These lighting designers are famous for their work, considered to be trendsetters and opinion makers. They come from different lighting fields: interior, exterior, art, stage and cinema lighting. The interviews are about the aesthetical and emotional aspects in the field of architectural lighting. Beautiful project pictures illustrate the vision of the lighting designers at hand. Their stories will introduce you to the fascinating world of lighting design.
The book “Light & Emotions, Exploring Lighting Cultures” was already published in 2009 by Philips. After an overwhelming response from designers, architects, engineers, students and the general public all over the world, the 2nd edition of the book is now official. In order to ensure a global availability of the book, we have handed over the re-publication of the book to publishing house Birkhäuser GmbH.
