How Different Creative Industries Approach Lighting Design

Chris Fordham writes: One of the joys for me of working in this industry is the fact that there is so much variety, and certainly no lack of opinions. To get anywhere in any creative field one thing of massive import is to know your customer, your client and those with whom you collaborate .

Ex-prime Minister David Cameron once used a famous advertising slogan to sum up the state of the coalition government at its halfway point, saying “it is a Ronseal deal – it does what it says on the tin”, this Ronseal slogan is pretty much the exact opposite of opening a 5 Litre can of interior designer, interior architect, you could very well end up looking at a nice tartan paint  !

In the following podcast series, we get the opinion of three celebrated movers and shakers in these fields, seeing how they approach lighting design in their projects. Thankfully they also remind us all of the benefits of a getting good lighting designer on board, and importantly never losing site of the end goal, where as we know lighting plays an integral part .

Thanks to all our interviewee’s, Kar-Hwa Ho, (Head of Interior Architecture at Zaha Hadid Architects), Michelle Wilkie, (Director at TP Bennet), and Juliette Wright, (Director & Co-founder at Stephenson Wright).   As you can see from my huge old school raving mop ( I can’t see me ever having that again) these were carried out over a long period, so we at The Light Review appreciate the patience of all who contributed, and were eager to see the final iteration.

Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity’ ” — Le Corbusier.
