Lighting design is still a new occupation and many people are not yet aware of the role and value of lighting design.

Ms. Konishi will speak about the attractiveness, role and value lighting design, and how light impacts our culture, living space and lifestyle, asking...
What is light? Why become a lighting designer?
What are some of the differences in the sense of light between Western and Japanese designs?
How to unravel lighting design from art and architecture?
She will also cover the lighting design revealed in the Tokyo American Club; discuss the latest lighting trends from the Lighting Fair in Frankfurt in 2018; and broaden discussion to SDGs and lighting to give a view on the world we hope to achieve in 2030 through lighting.
