From London to London, passing through the world. The exciting experience of the workshop series Social Lightscape
comes to an end, and iGuzzini is proud of having been part of the program with the London School of Economics,
the King's College London
and the Social Light Movement.
As a part of the Configuring Light/Staging the Social
project, Social Lightscape
aimed to promote the application of the sociological research into the lighting design process using a creative and practical way. The biennial program, composed of a series of international regenerative workshops across underprivileged areas of London, Muscat, Timisoara, Brisbane, Rome and Paris, has served as foundation for a lighting design manual which incorporates social science methodologies into lighting schemes rather than only relying on technical data (illumination levels, standard compliance, etc.). This manual will be released on 8th March 2018 and the launch will be hosted by the London School of Economics.
iGuzzini, awarded Best Partner in the Industry 2017
by PLDC 2017 thanks to the partnership with Configuring Light, supported the program by providing the research grant to the architect and lighting designer Elettra Bordonaro, lighting solutions as well as logistics and technical support in each stage. Improving collective spaces through light is the most recent in a long history of social innovation projects that iGuzzini has been promoting since the early 1990s - with the early biodynamic light studies and campaigns against lighting pollution.
