19-20 SEPTEMBER 2018 • SHOREDITCH, LONDON

darc room : workshops

Wednesday 19th September

Ambient Communication

12:00 – 18:00 (2 hour sessions)

Experience the future of digital content creation for media facades and architectural environments – straight outta Finland!

LED Education

12:00 – 13:00

Everything you wanted to know about LEDs* (*but were afraid to ask). If darc room was set in an American High School we’d call this LED 101 – using hands-on demonstrations and simple, easy to understand explanations join Jeremy Fielding from Atrium on a journey through the basic concepts of colour rendering, colour temperature, flicker, dimming, consistency, spectral power distributions, control and much more – all the hot topics with live demonstrations of key elements.

Human Centric Lighting

13:30 – 15:30

Human Centric Lighting was the key buzz phrase at this year’s Light + Building – almost everyone was claiming some form of Human Centric element in their product range – but what exactly do we mean by Human Centric Lighting? Is it the ability to change colour temperature and intensity, is it a more sophisticated mapping of light over time or is it mainly a marketing band wagon that everyone is jumping on. The biological effect of light cannot be denied and therefore the responsible use of light needs to become the cornerstone of our industry.

Control

16:00 – 17:00

Control is always at the top of the list when you ask lighting designers what they want to know more about, but now sophisticated lighting control is available to everyone from tech-savvy designers to anyone with a smart device. darc room brings you a hands-on workshop where you can get to experience the latest Casambi Bluetooth based lighting control technology applied to dynamic LensVector beam shaping, output control and colour temperature. In this workshop, you will get to see the hardware that normally sits behind the scenes, learn how to use a simple iPhone or Android app to create group, set static scenes, and create animated scenes.

Connected Light

14:00 – 16:00

It’s time to get your lighting geek on! We’ve all heard of the Internet of Things and Connected Light – it’s everywhere but no-one really knows what to do with it! darc room has asked Francesco Anselmo, from Arup to break it down for us. He’s not selling anything, not promoting a specific standard but he is passionate about the future of connected light. He wants everyone to see where this technology can take us as it gradually becomes part of our daily lives in the same way that e-mail has taken over from handwritten letters.

How to be brilliant…

16:30 – 17:30

darc room is delighted to welcome special guests and collaborators the ILP with a one-off edition of their incredibly successful how to be brilliant series. Developed especially for students, interns, apprentices and new entrants to the lighting profession.

Rebecca Hutchinson, Senior Lighting Designer at John Cullen Lighting, will review the latest Building Regulations, consider where best to position fittings for optimum effect, consider how to layer light for added interest and flexibility of mood, review circuiting, control and integration for maximum impact and look at how to finesse lamps, lenses and control to maximise the scheme.
