Open Talent "Clair obscure in public space"

Open Talent \
Rudolf Teunissen, lighting designer at Daglicht & Vorm and recipient of the International Association of Lighting Designers’ Radiance award for his project Broken Light, will give a conference titled "Clair Obscure in public space" on Thursday, March 10th, at 7:30 p.m. The conference will take place at Fabra i Coats - Barcelona Art Factory (Carrer Sant Adrià 20, Barcelona).

Daglicht & Vorm, a renowned public lighting design company based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, develops functional lighting design solutions combining art and design, with a focus on user experience and sustainability.

Teunissen is the creator of the urban lighting project Broken Light, which brings together design and functionality to give a new identity to a Rotterdam street that stood out as an example of urban degradation. Through a combination of public lighting and lighting design, Teunisser succeeded in infusing the street with a new personality, driving away crime and prostitution and strengthening the sense of community in the area. The project received several international prizes, among them IALD’s Radiance Award, for the successful combination of cultural and social aspects with visual comfort in the creation of a unique lighting experience.
Teunissen’s talk in Barcelona will center on this area of expertise: the perception and meaning of light in public spaces.

The conference will be held in English.
