Lighting Design

In recent years, lighting technology has undergone a revolution, including intelligent and interactive control of light in rooms. Moreover, new lighting technologies and use of interactive screens are becoming increasingly visible in the public space. Therefore, professional and highly educated lighting designers are sought after. Companies are looking for people who understand lighting design, are able to work with existing technologies and to develop new and smart solutions.
