This project has been shortlisted in the “Award For Research” category.

The motto of the 6th PLDC, which is expecting to attract more than 1700 attendees from all over the world, will be “Shift happens!” – pointing to the changes on the lighting design landscape and the impact of digital technologies on this transforming conditions.
