Webinar: Bold, Brash, or Benign? Color in Design Panel Discussion

10 February 2022 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

IES Boston Section

A three-person panel consisting of a lighting designer, graphic designer, and interior designer discusses the aesthetics of color. How does the application of color evoke emotion, create mood, define form, or punctuate a rhythm of a space? Color can be perceived as material finish, a wavelength of light, tinted glass, or anything in-between.

Each panelist has 10-15 minutes to do a deep dive into their design process when it comes to working with, applying, and specifying color.

After individual presentations, there will be time for the panelists to both query one another as well as answer audience questions.
