With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

What light through yonder window breaks…?” If it’s not the sun, then it’s likely artificial light. Considering the number of ways we can manipulate light – including colour, shape, intensity, reflection and more – are we using it to the greatest advantage to make our winter spaces more pleasing, safer, and better for our mental and physical health?

In this episode, we chat with Darío Gustavo Núñez from the Icelandic engineering firm Verkis and Sabine De Schutter from Studio De Schutter in Berlin. We explore about the goals and opportunities of lighting, the many ways that we can control light or, alternatively, manage darkness, and the impacts and implications of lighting on our health and well-being.
