STIR at the 8th Professional Lighting Design Convention (PLDC 2019) brought forth an enlightening mélange of all things illuminated – from natural to artificial lighting and everything in between.

Lighting conferences are wonderful places of sharing and learning. However, the attendance is predominantly lighting designers. Furthermore, the presentation system is one-sided, necessarily, but sometimes additional follow-up questions are not always possible, and the one-on-one Q&A is not available to everybody.

Presented by Wipro Lighting, Spread the Light is a series of discussions between experts and young professionals in the lighting industry, attending the PLDC at Rotterdam this year. Curated by eminent lighting designer, Linus Lopez, of Lirio Lopez Electrical + Lighting Design Consultants, these conversations are intended to be shared for the benefit of the design community at large. The designers also address some of the profession’s current and future challenges, as well as designer specific issues about personal accomplishments and designs.

Watch this space to find out how each of the designer-duos interacted, expressing their experiences from the lighting industry, the importance of light in various facets of life, the role of lighting designers in the design world, and what they would like to STIR up in the future.
