It's all about education at Light School.

Light School is not your usual, run of the mill exhibition for the lighting industry.

Co-located with the highly respected Surface Design Show in London’s iconic Business Design Centre, Light School sets out to educate architects and designers in the importance of lighting in the design of both the interior and exterior of buildings.

London is now the world's capital for lighting design specification, home to 101 lighting design practices (out of a total of 209 in the UK). Responsible for specifying for projects not only in the UK, but around the globe, UK practices secure on average almost 12 projects each abroad.
