Event Details

Light plays an important role in our daily lives. We are surrounded by it and dependent on it. Light is also key to design. There’s design for light—lamps, for example—and design with light—illumination of art, say. At this symposium you’ll learn how light affects design and new trends in light sources.

Our first event in a new series on light, Light and Design welcomes

  • Yves Behar, a Swiss industrial designer and founder of San Francisco-based firm fuseproject, famous for his innovative approach;
  • Patrick Reymond, co-founder of Swiss design company Atelier Oï, involved in architecture, design, and scenography;
  • Patricia Glasow, a leading light designer in the Bay Area for Auerbach Glasow French, an international architectural lighting design and consulting company.
  • Steven Mesh, Lighting Programs Coordinator for Pacific Energy Center, leads the discussion, which is focused on light as the center of design, how light is used, and new trends in light sources.

Free. Advance RSVP required.
