SuperLux is an international celebration of the ingenuity and artistry of the latest lighting technology and the ‘Smart Light’ movement. As our buildings, public spaces and even homes become more interactive, smart-light design will become more significant in our lives.

‘Smart Light’ is an increasingly common term for the new technologies and ecological ideas that are being creatively applied to transform urban environments at night. There is even a new genre of public Smart Light festivals – family-friendly, ethical, energy-audited celebrations.

More than fifty public artworks, design installations and architectural-scale projects are presented in three main sections:

– Animating buildings and architecture through illumination, media screens and projections
– Bringing light to former industrial zones and new public areas, including wayfinding and streets
– Interactive installations in urban spaces and public interiors.

The sections are punctuated by essays by leading experts and designers in the field, including Peter Weibel, CEO of the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe and Peter Droege, General Chairman of the World Council for Renewable Energy.
