Burlington 2019 - A New Language Of Lighting | Leni Schwendinger

Signify Design and Lighting Academy hosted the 2nd edition of the Burlington Sessions, a CoCreate aimed at bringing together lighting artists & designers that inspire us, push the limits and create a new language of lighting. This is a small group, by invitation only, of international recognized disruptors leading the way into the future of lighting. These sessions are very hands-on, Signify shared some of the solutions we are developing in a very early stage, our guests were able to experiment and explore, and share their ideas on what/ how would these concepts work for them and their customers. Leni Schwendinger is an award-winning authority on city lighting & creator of illuminated environments. This work is shared through her public speaking & envisioning engagements, including NightSeeing™. She directs International Nighttime Design Initiative, establishing an interdisciplinary profession. Leni is a Visiting Research Fellow at the London School of Economics and a Design Trust for Public Space Fellow (NYC) Contact us: Find more about Signify Lighting Academy: Follow us on Social media: Twitter: LinkedIn: Facebook: Youtube: #Signify #LightingAcademy #BurS2 #BurlingtonSessions #Lighting #SignifyDesign #LightingDesign #LightingArtists #PioneersofLight


Luminous Legibility: an online presentation and discussion about the trends and innovative methodologies that are rocking the world of public lighting design.

Connecting Communities through Smart and Responsive Lighting: Using the newly released Smart Lighting Guidebook, Leni presents a holistic approach to digital technologies — valuing safety, welcome, walkability, and social capital -- to consider the practical the advantages of connected lighting as a critical tool for around-the-clock placemaking.


LUCI recently commissioned Leni to compile a report about the state of the field of urban lighting in the U.S. The report submitted by Leni is excellent. It showcases her curiosity and her expertise on the topic. It uncovers interesting differences in nighttime lighting values and governance between European cities and those in America. We are looking forward to continuing our collaborations with Leni on this research.
