[d]arc THOUGHTS

Brought to you by Lutron and taking place on the Magazine Mezzanine, [d]arc thoughts took place over three-days and featured insightful discussions from leading industry professionals working with light. Included in the line-up were designers from BDP; Hagen Hinderdael; Hoare Lea; JPLD; Kate & Sam Lighting Design; Mistry Lighting; MSLD; Nulty; and Speirs Major to name just a few.

As well as covering technical elements of light, the [d]arc thoughts platform was also used to concentrate on issues around diversity within the industry. Each day, there was a panel focused on Diversity in Design – aiming to highlight issues around gender, ethnicity and sexuality in the lighting design community and how we can all work towards a fairer playing field.
