Light for Public Spaces / Lighting

Light for Public Spaces



Light For Public Spaces is an inspiring thought leadership piece about digital light aimed at city stakeholders, covering how long-standing design principles are changing, the importance of interactive design plus how we develop meaningful metrics. Moving the smart cities debate from technology-based to a human-focused, experience-based view, Light For Public Spaces combines expertise in architecture, urban planning, design, technology and communication design into a holistic perspective on how light can improve the economy, health and well-being of the modern city and its citizens.

Light is a blessing for us all – but lighting in many places is nothing less than environmental pollution. That’s why the lighting concepts developed by Philips are so delightfully different, forward-looking and create new quality for public spaces. The public space is lit more intelligently to enhance the quality of that space. Poor light makes us ill, good light spreads joy.
