Description

For Billings Jackson, one of the leading industrial design firms in the world, the design process begins with understanding the needs of the entire product ecosystem: end users, specifiers, architects, lighting designers, manufacturers, sales and marketing teams, contractors, installers, building owners, and regulators. Working from the bottom up, the firm builds design briefs based on performance requirements across all stakeholder groups and specific manufacturing processes and technologies. This enables high quality, practical design solutions that prioritize ease of production and economy in delivery and in use. This talk will look at developments in integrating IoT into lighting projects and projects over the last 5 years, and describe the valuable lessons learned from an industrial design perspective.
