The use of light and illumination in architecture and design is currently evolving and making an increasingly significant impact in various creative disciplines. Today, architects use light installations to create a different night-time identity for buildings that allow for additional functions and presentations. Light is also important for designers who use it to illuminate locations, or conjure works of art, forms and images in commercial or cultural contexts. In short: light is a magical medium for creative experimentation that today’s designers are using to produce a broad spectrum of exciting work.
