Atrium Events at London Design Festival 2019

16-19th September 2019

Our programme of events throughout the week will take the visitor on a journey of exploration that seeks to illustrate the relationship between light and colour and just some of the ways they have influenced architects, designers and artists – and how they affect all of us in mind and body.

Unlocking the Code of Colour & Light | CPD Presentation

16th September 2019
12.00-13.30pm

The programme begins by Unlocking the Code of Colour to understand its relationship with light.  Natural light renders everything in true colour, allowing us to see the full breadth of the visible spectrum.  Artificial light attempts to emulate this but there are limitations and bias.  Our RIBA approved presentation explores colour through its three states – illumination, transmission and perception – the known physiological and psychological effects that colour and lighting have on the human condition and describes the evolution of LED as the leading sustainable artificial light source.  Architects and engineers, artists and designers recognise the importance of light and colour in their work. 

Everything you need to know about LEDs (but may have been afraid to ask)

17th September 2019
12.00-13.30pm

Jeremy Fielding of Atrium will explain all there is to know about LED (but you may have been afraid to ask). What is it, how does it work, how do you determine its colour rendering attributes, how should you specify and use it and what is its contribution to energy conservation and the environment?
