The newly (re)launched Lighting magazine has commissioned a series of features from Lighting Design House’s Mary Rushton-Beales. The series explains issues related to lighting all types of surfaces and uses a ‘sketchbook’ format with illustrations of the type often used to explore concepts at an early stage of lighting design. It begins with the ubiquitous but tricky medium of glass. The series is mainly aimed at the magazine’s large readership of architects, as well as lighting professionals.
Although Lighting magazine has been in existence since 1969, it was recently relaunched with new publishers in the UK and USA. The revivified magazine has a new high-end format and production values. Mary’s ‘sketchbook’ sits alongside extensive articles on subjects such as architect Jorn Utzon’s use of natural light; bioluminescence and other topics relating to ‘illumination in architecture’.
