Lightspace California

The lightspace concept was launched in London last November, and its unique blend of inspiration and innovation proved an instant hit with the architectural and lighting design communities. Now we’re delighted to bring the format to California.

Lightspace California is co-located with The LED Show and Strategies in Light. Taken together, the events represent an unparalleled diversity which spans the lighting supply chain and again breaks down barriers between manufacturers and specifiers.

A line-up of thought leaders – including leading lighting designers and architects –will explore themes of integration of light and architecture, the role of darkness and shadow and collaboration across the disciplines.
