The following article was written by Yolanda Adornato from the Lighting Application Center.

Come visit the Lighting Application Center (LAC) in Somerset, New Jersey, U.S. to experience what light can do. Once you enter the center, you’ll be immersed in a variety of lighting applications in a dozen separated vignettes presenting various retail, hospitality and working environments.

You’ll see dynamic lighting at its best! Walls will change color and reveal texture, LED lighting gives the impression of being in a warm fire-flicking environment while the chandelier projects the ambience of fresh falling snow.

Whether you visit the LAC to attend an open-enrollment course or customized workshop, our  experienced faculty will engage you in discovering alternative lighting systems that enable you to compare different lighting effects and technologies.

If you are a user or supplier of commercial, industrial, institutional lighting or in the design community, then a visit to the Philips Lighting Application Center is a must.
