Hess Lightletter 1/2018 is out now

The Hess Lightletter 2018 focuses on the Topic of "The Smart City of Today and Tomorrow", that we illuminate from very different angles and let top-class experts have their say about the subject.

The current edition is entitled "Smart City" and marks the beginning of the new title series "Smart City of Today and Tomorrow". It is structured as a three-part series and focuses on the topics of “light”, “multifunctionality” and “design”. As a central element, we conduct high-profile interviews with experts on the respective topics.

The first issue of our Lightletter is dedicated to the topic of “light”. For this we spoke with Prof Peter Andres and Katja Schiebler from the planning office of Peter Andres Consulting Engineers for Lighting Design in Hamburg, Germany.

Smart lighting and design solutions were also the focus of our trade fair presentation at Light + Building 2018 in Frankfurt. We presented a large number of newly developed products for smart cities and attractive urban spaces, which we introduce again in our Lightletter.

Our reference report is dedicated to the successful lighting and design solution for the newly designed Willy-Brandt-Platz in Lünen (Germany). With a combination of luminaires and site furnishings, the marketplace is now very attractively set in scene - during the day and at night. The lighting concept gives it a unique, even color accentuated appearance - according to mood, occasion and season.

These and other topics await you in our Lightletter.
