Knoll Showroom
281 Summer St.
Boston, MA 02210

With lighting being such an integral part of any successful Interior Design solution, the International Interior Design Association of New England (IIDANE), as part of our Professional Development Committee and the Illuminating Engineering Society of Boston & Rhode Island (IES-BOSRI) invite you to join us for an in-depth overview of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting technology and its relevance to Interior Design.

The four (4) options for an Interior Designer’s path to the resources available for knowledgeable LED lighting technology will be discussed.  Relevant LED lighting terminology, such as Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), Color Rendering Index (CRI), R-9 Values, the IES Technical Manual 30 (TM-30), Diode Binning and the MacAdam Ellipse color chart will be covered, all with the intention of increasing the knowledge of those who attend; the end goal being to increase the knowledge of Interior Designers to better design and engage with Architects, Lighting Designers and Electrical Engineers with more confidence when discussing lighting. 1.5 LU/HSW AIA Credit’s will be extended to all who attend.

Presenters Ira Rothman, IES Boston Chapter President and Matt Hyatt, IIDA NE Immediate Past President, will guide us through this topic. All attendees will leave conversant in the realm of lighting design so they can have more productive & meaningful work sessions with their lighting teams – from in-house staff, to electrical engineers, to sales rep houses, to professional lighting designers.
