Trends in Lighting 2017

Trends in Lighting 2017: The First International Forum & Show Dedicated to Smart Lighting & IoT

Light and how it is used affects our lives. Light creates our environments, enhances our moods, it can alter our health and it is pivotal to our very existence. By combining LED/OLED technology with the infinite possibilities of today’s connected ‘smart’ world, light and lighting design are now open to a whole new world of possibilities and solutions. We now have Smart Lighting that will affect us all today, and in the future Trends in Lighting 2017 perfectly addresses these novel future lighting solutions and trends.

TIL 2017 – A Carefully Curated Hub

The event has been created to address the questions being asked in modern light design and technologies. The event comprises of exclusive lectures, panel debates, workshops and exhibition. A carefully curated hub, TiL 2017 will offer architects, planners, designers, manufacturers and systems integrators a unique experience, a place to learn about modern lighting and connect with international experts. There is also a chance to get hands-on with the latest technologies, making it a truly immerse experience.

Trends in Lighting 2017 is the perfect place to discuss the latest lighting technologies and innovations.

The Art of Design

Lead architect Thomas Kinzler of Zaha Hadid Architects will share his passion and ideas about the role of lighting design in modern architecture. Lighting designer Massimo Iarussi will present the excellent lighting project for the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo in Florence, where lighting, design and the forms all contributed to finding new solutions.

“The space, the geometry, the light of an architecture in great proportions must remain the core aim, while engineering aims for zero carbon, ultra-green architecture. But this balance between the poetry of architecture and its green engineering is crucial,” Steven Holl, Architect.

In addition to the design and forms of the architecture, practical lighting system solutions will be presented and discussed. Philips, Zumtobel Group, Osram, Trilux and other industry trailblazers will explain the latest insights into light and present some of their intelligent system solutions.

Smart, Intelligent, Internet of Things

A key trend is the agility of modern networks that allow lighting solutions to evolve and adapt, increasing the efficiency in cities and buildings. The diverse questions of networking and connectivity are central to the TiL 2017 lectures and workshops. The aim of which is to generate a greater understanding of smart lighting and to present solution concepts from global brands such as Huawei.

“TiL 2017 is an interactive and practice-oriented hub created by, and for, experts in order to collectively experience the future of light. It will close the gap between application, design and technology.” Event Director, Siegfried Luger.

Hands-On Workshops

In addition to the lectures TiL 2017 offers interactive workshops. The wide range of topics for these workshops include, data transmission via light, an exploration of visual perception, the theme of “Design meets Technology” and the balance that must be stuck, miniaturization of lighting systems, and the issue of cyber security.

Hands-On Show

In the parallel hands-on show, attendees can experience a showcase of the current light trends. This will include Amazon echo in the Experience Lab; APIL realized light projects; energy-saving and intelligent lighting controllers, innovative lighting assembly; colored and intelligently controlled floor plates and ‘Internet of Lighting’ products. Also this year, the best application system will be awarded the TiL Award.

Trends in Lighting 2017 (TiL 2017) will take place on the 26-28 September 2017 in Festspielhaus Bregenz, Austria and runs in parallel with the LED professional Symposium 2017 (LpS 2017).
