As LEDs and lighting controls continue to advance, the healthcare industry is about to undergo a revolution. Light has become an effective therapy for everyone touched by the healthcare system—from patients to medical personnel. Picture this: you’re at the doctor’s office. Instead of leaving with a prescription for medicine from the pharmacy, the doctor prescribes light. Yes, light. With the multitude of possibilities presented by tunable white lighting—that is, light matched to our bodies’ internal clocks—healthcare lighting will soon be about much more than mere visibility.

Webinar: RP-43, Lighting for People in Outdoor Environments
Mar 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

RP-43, Lighting for People in Outdoor Environments, is also new guidance from the IES, and complementary to the design process of LP2. In this session, physical characteristics of outdoor space will be discussed alongside the importance of pedestrian reassurance. Our RP-43 discussion will walk attendees through thoughtful examples and the ground-breaking illuminance recommendations of pedestrian applications. Spoiler alert, you may achieve better results using less light. Highlighted within the RP-43 illuminance tables are a newly organized structure based on the design process itself. Additionally, ranges of acceptable illumination are offered based on responsible design choices such as glare and spectrum, thus giving the designer increased flexibility to achieve their goals.

Webinar: A Second Language of Light
Apr 22 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Stop pushing lighting; start sharing light.
“We don’t need anything fancy; we just need regular lighting.”
We are all in sales of some kind. Designers sell ideas and concepts that require the sale of light fixtures. Engineers lay out precise solutions that require the purchase of product and the labor of installation. Manufacturers create lighting products that must sell to keep the doors open and food on the table. Client and customer comments like the one above may strike fear in your heart, and it should. Lighting is not often an easy sell.

Someone else does it faster, cheaper, or better so hurry up, lower your prices or fees, and improve your game. The end user doesn’t want what we have and would rather not pay for it. Nobody cares about our calculations but us and lawyers, the client does not know TM-30 from R2-D2, and the only thing selling like hotcakes are the glare bombs shaped like them.

Now for the good news: you are the keeper of a sacred ancient magic that has the power to transform lives. Life depends on this magical force. Light is a fundamental element of our existence, but we need to learn a second language of light if we are to share this amazing gift with the world.

Join David K. Warfel for a romp through the lighting industry where no one is safe from over-simplification and pithy remarks but where everyone can laugh a little and see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
And it is brighter than ever.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTER: David K. Warfel
David K. WarfelDavid K. Warfel is an overly sensitive, marginally materialistic, pseudo-tree-hugging Midwestern farm boy turned lighting designer. His hyper-sensitivity means he dims everything including his dashboard, and his marginal materialism means he loves high quality light fixtures, elegant controls, and French cuffs. He calms his enviro-consciousness by using energy-saving lighting solutions and wearing hiking shoes to work, and is always ready to roll up his literal shirt sleeves to solve client problems with baling wire and duct tape (although now he prefers gaffers tape). He uses the title “Convergence Designer” since he cannot decide what he wants to be if he ever grows up (unlikely at this point), and practices at the overlap of architectural and performance lighting. He’s as surprised as you are by the list of credits to his name that range from New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Las Vegas’ Luxor and MGM Grand casinos, from Chicago’s Hyde Park Arts Center and Museum of Science and Industry to residential and hospitality projects in Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nevada, Oregon, California, and Arizona. He has worked with award-winning firms Schuler Shook and CharterSills, and weathered the recession safely cloistered as the head of lighting design at the University of Illinois. David’s work has been featured in Lighting & Sound America, Lighting Australia, Live Design, and Theatrical Design & Technology, but he is usually reading Inspector Gamache novels or other similar educational materials.

Webinar: Top 10 (Surprising!) Things That Impact Lighting
Apr 28 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Webinar: Top 10 (Surprising!) Things That Impact Lighting

SPEAKERS: Lisa Reed and Dominick Ehling

This presentation is taken straight from real-life past project experiences, and all the times a designer said something like, “Oh, I didn’t know dark maroon walls, plus black floors and ceilings were going to impact the lighting.” (Yes. That happened.) Whether it is the color of the paint of the sheen of a ceiling, everything in an architectural space can impact the lighting design. This sometimes cringey list will help YOU remember to ask all the right questions during design in order to avoid lighting disappointments after construction is complete. Don’t miss it!
