Editor's note

As a part of Lumec's efforts to make a continuous outreach to our counterparts, we have created The Focal Point. Sent to you three times a year, our goal is to improve the flow of information to those that work with outdoor lighting and to foster a sense of community amongst them.

In our newsletter, leaders in the field will learn about the latest technological and design breakthroughs. We'll include articles on the subjects that make all the difference to those who work in this field: specs, emerging technologies, art, green trends (LEED, L.E.D.'s, Darksky, and even turtle friendly beach lighting), standards, codes, norms and many other issues that concern us all.

Recently we have commissioned a research firm and discovered that 48% of professionals who work with outdoor lighting say that lack of clear information is the main hindrance to efficient product selection. In order to address this issue, we'll include a suggestion link so that you, the landscape architect, the artist, the designer, the engineer, the city official and the city planner, can inform us of your needs. Tell us what you would like more information about, and we'll make it happen in ways that will benefit everyone in the industry! You build the world; let us supply you with the means to find beautiful, durable, low-maintenance blocks that shine inspiration on everything they illuminate.

Please send suggestions to: lumec.suggestions@philips.com
