Comments on PLDC 2009
Every presentation I went to had value, and the conversations throughout the event were fun, interesting and informative.

PLDC is a demonstration, that lighting designers have a lot of power. In Berlin, all this power comes together. We can achieve a lot – only through the power of light!
PLDC offers me a platform to see how my colleagues use light – what are the “pluses” they use, what are the “minuses” they have eliminated from their work. PLDC is a chance for me to seize upon new ideas.
