Linus Lopez/IN, Lirio Lopez Electrical + Lighting Design Consultants
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics Engineering and a Masters in Architectural Lighting Design, Linus believes he will be a student all his life. Passionate about travel, music, world cultures and nature-based design, he seeks to deploy his experiential learning in his work. Together with his partner, brother and mentor, Lyle, they choose the innovative, but contextual, creative yet practical approach to lighting design.
Linus Lopez is partner in the firm Lirio Lopez Electrical + Lighting Design Consultants in New Delhi, India. Founded in the 1960’s, the firm has successfully realised electrical engineering projects all over India and the sub-continent. Since 2001, in response to more creative callings, Lyle and Linus began specialized lighting design services and have since designed lighting solutions for several projects all over India and a few other countries across the spectrum of hospitality, entertainment, heritage, residential and commercial along with museums, art galleries and exhibitions.
Working in India, and learning from all over the world, has resulted in unique solutions combining tested technologies with cost-effective practicality. This approach helps balance the tighter budgets in emerging economies with good design and happier environments.
The subtext of context in lighting design
Presentation date: 27. October
Presentation time: 10:10
Good Design is about, around and significant to … people!
The presentation will focus on the approach and the process of lighting design and less on the results, with the intention of enabling those attending to distil their own process and develop an intuitive template for ascertaining context of place, time, application, philosophy and motivation.
Although the primary focus of the presentation will be the design process, Linus Lopez will also be weaving a parallel narrative of human behaviour, genetic and cultural thinking, nature and nature-based design, and spatial involvement. There are a number of ways in which design decisions are taken. Many times, a design iteration is governed by “design by instinct” and “I just feel this is right!” Linus has tried to analyse this so that the design community can tap into an inner consciousness and connect some dots to resolve design that is emotive, believable and experiential.
