In his second blog from the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair, Lux's applications editor, John Bullock, fights his way through five floors of lighting fun.

Derby Cathedral is the jewel in the city’s crown. Designed by James Gibbs, one of Britain’s most influential architects who was responsible for St-Martin-in-the-Fields in London and the Radcliffe Camera at Oxford University, the cathedral is Neo-Classical in style, yet simple in nature. James Morse Lighting Design approched developing a new lighting scheme for the cathedral with this very much in mind and as a result the project has been nominated for a Lux Award. In the latest of our Lux Awards project profiles we take a look at Morse's attempt to light Derby's most famous building.

Hackers harnessing Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including smart lights, have crashed some of the world’s biggest websites including Spotify, PayPal and Twitter. It is no secret, as revenues from LEDs fade, that the lighting industry is placing a big pile of gambling chips on the success of the Internet of Things, but the hack marks the second major security breach in as many months, suggesting IoT is not yet ready for the big leagues.
