SW Ontario IES-User Experience Design Principles for Lighting Design

June 12, 2018
Whistle Bear Golf Club, R.R. #33 - 1316 Dickie Settlement Road , Cambridge, Ontario N3H 4R8

Technical Seminar

Lighting Design has evolved from tired clichés such as “function vs form” or “science vs art” applications. “Device-centric” design approaches are making way for integrated systems design which extend beyond a technical expression of “function” as Lux levels and “form” as decorative fixtures, to enhance user experience.

LED technology, new controls protocols and the promise of IOT is driving this evolution. White tuning, warm dim, colour projection and high-trim tuning are but a few promising new tools for the Lighting Designer using UX design principles as a cohesive, integrated set of experiences. The Lighting Designer is now expected to develop design narratives which address usability of systems, as well as interactive and immersive technologies and methods.
