Lighting the Architectural World, Allie Schieffelin, The Lighting Quotient

Allie Schieffelin, The Lighting Quotient and Ari Santiago, CompassMSP

Architectural lighting may not be something you think about often- but most people notice when it's really great or really bad!


In this episode, Allie Schieffelin, Owner and CEO of The Lighting Quotient, talks about lighting design and engineering and how this 100+ year old company has shifted with the times and trends.

Did you know that LEDs made a HUGE shift in the world of lighting? Neither did we…but the pendulum swings both ways and the direct lighting sources which dominated early LED lighting are now swinging back to reflective lighting that is more decorative and easier on the eyes.   

Allie and Ari also talk about topics like "machine envy", respect for tradespeople and the training needs that every manufacturer faces.
