LEDforum.21 will be held online November 5, 2021 and is guaranteed to be met with the same success as 2020!

The 12th LEDforum, Latin America’s premiere lighting design conference, ushers in some new additions. This year, the program and speaker line-up have been drawn up in partnership with the unstoppable lighting designers behind the Light Drops Project, Diana Joels and Paula Carnelós. Together with Thiago Gaya, LEDforum’s creator, the three are preparing an unforgettable theme-based event complete with lectures and content that mesh, converge and complement each other and that culminate in a harmonious round-table dialogue at the forum’s closing.

The feature article “In Praise of Design,” published in the March edition of the L+D Magazine, is both the starting point and the common thread of the LEDforum.21 publication. The event’s four themes were drawn from the article in which Diana shares her thoughts on design and its particularities as a complex, integral and human discipline: REPERTOIR, VOCABULARY, APPROACH, and HOLISTIC DESIGN.

And the speakers who will be addressing the selected themes are: Manaus-based Belgian architect Laurent Troost (REPERTOIR); New York-based lighting designer, phototect and photectural critic Nathalie Rozot (VOCABULARY); Catalan architect Josep Ferrando (APPROACH); and Middle East-based Tanzanian lighting designer Sakina Dugawalla-Moeller (HOLISTIC DESIGN). And to round off this journey of knowledge and exchange, Jan Ejhed, professor emeritus and founder of the Lighting Laboratory at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, will lead a panel discussion with our guest speakers.

True to its stellar reputation, LEDforum is once again proud to present a vibrant, intense and inspiring program: LEDforum.21 digital | In Praise of Design
