smart phones and an obsession with social media. Other panelists will include: Phil Coffey, director, Coffey Architects; Paul Raftery, architectural photographer; and Sam Jacob, Sam Jacob Studios. ‘Lighting London’ will focus on lighting in its role of shaping our experiences of urban landscapes.

This talk will be chaired by David Michon, with participation from: Sarah Gaventa, director, Illuminated River; Helen Marriage, director of Artichoke; Simon Keeling & Set Benson, founders of In Situ; and Joy Nazzari, director of dn&co.

Leading lights in workplace wellness will look at how many of us spend the majority of our waking hours in the workplace where often the lighting is uncomfortable, if not detrimental to our health. Employees understand the importance of health at work and now often choose their future roles based on the quality of life they will get in the office. The questions of why we are so far behind with the design of artifi- cial and natural lighting in the workspace and who the bright sparks are leading us out of the dark, will be addressed. Clare Dowdy, freelance design journalist, will chair this session whose other contributors are: Simon Allford, director of AHMM; Catherine van Der Heide, associate at HASSELL Studio; Inessa Demidova, light-
