 Light in         Space

Attend this webinar to  understand how light in space is envisioned


Live on Thursday December 6, 2018             4:00 PM CET (Amsterdam, GMT+02:00) 



Light in Space

This month’s webinar is a visionary roundtable. Listen to these 3 professionals and hear what they have to say from their point of view. Being an artist, being a space designer or product designer. A product designer looks completely different to this theme, compared to a lighting artist. Is this so? Or Not? Maybe it is the same…


In these time of rapid technology innovation, designing a space is something completely different then 5 years ago. What is the relating between material & light and how does this relates to beautiful products around us?

Do these different perspectives come somewhere together or do they have a different live?

Can they work together?


In this round table, Vesna Petresin, Maarten Jamin and Gernot Oberfell will share their vision on Light in Space from these 3 different perspectives.

About the Presenter


Dr. Vesna Petresin is a transdisciplinary artist and thinker. She has a practice as a time-architect, composing and performing with sound, light, rhythm, space, movement, text and code. The format of her work ranges from mixed reality, augmented live performance, immersive ambients, and audio-visual installations that build on the principle of a smart city.


Currently a Visiting Fellow at Goldsmiths and a Visiting Lecturer/Artist in Residency at the Netherlands Film Academy, she has lectured and published internationally (Springer, Thames & Hudson, Wiley Academy). Petresin’s practice explores embodiment, transformation and time, alongside the barriers between the intimate and the public sphere. Using her voice, movement, sound, image and light, she creates experiences that highlight body, movement, space and emotions.


The Methods and techniques for creating immersive experiences using light in spatial context will be the main theme during her presentations. Vesna will address scale and size in interiors as well as in urban settings, aesthetics and affect, inviting emotions and painting with coloured light creating illusory spatial experiences. To compose a lightscape she is using light and colour phenomenology. For the dynamics and narrative she is using rhythm, pattern and colour variations.

About the Presenter


Before forming their Munich-Berlin based practice in 2007, Gernot Oberfell (1975) and Jan Wertel (1976) studied industrial design in Stuttgart at the State Academy of Arts and worked several years for Ross Lovegrove in London.


Their work ranges from furniture, lighting and industrial products to experimental research pieces for companies such as Braun, Gillette, OralB, Neff, Philips, Sony, Panasonic, Bulthaup and others.


Design Approach:


Gernot and Jan share a strong interest in new technologies and manufacturing processes, and at an early stage in their careers discovered the possibilities of computer aided design. Software is not just used as an everyday tool, but becomes through experimentation a source of inspiration. Their work combines these experiments with the logic and beauty of organic forms and the reality of product design: the right use of materials, production processes and ergonomics.


Gernot will be talking about the making of & the design process and the importance of design and inspiration. What are the technical considerations as well as what will be the purpose. You will get insights in the complexity in lighting design - technical, functional & emotional as well as in a view on process based design development.
