Due to the COVID-19 situation, this event has been canceled. Our priority is not only the education of lighting professionals, but to the health and well being of all our associates.

IALD DC and IES DC Team up for a Chase the Dark Event featuring an LED, Glare, and Metrics Lecture by Naomi Miller, FIALD:
Please join us on Thursday, March 19th at 5:30 P.M. at the Herman Miller Showroom in DC! There will be appetizers and refreshments as we test our creative abilities with the 2020 Chase the Dark theme: “One Beam of Light.” Attendees will play with Lucifer Lighting’s LED cylinders, putting their own creative spin on the theme. We encourage attendees to join in this global event by posting their lighting designs to social media with #IALDChaseDark. IALD members around the world will be posting throughout the night to the same hashtag!
Following the activity,  we will enjoy Naomi Miller’s much-anticipated discussion: LEDs, Glare, Metrics: We’re getting closer!
Discomfort glare has been the intractable bugaboo of lighting for decades. Whether it’s interior or exterior lighting, we’ve all sensed that LEDs can be worse than conventional lighting. Why? This talk will address what has been learned about luminance distribution across luminaire apertures, how and why edges and SPD affect glare perception, and how glare metrics are being modified to be better predictors. This topic is a prominent issue for specifiers and manufacturers. How do we improve products so that LEDs are not automatically associated with discomfort glare? Yes, there are tradeoffs between efficacy and ideal light distribution. Is there a happy medium between stellar efficacy and visual comfort?
The IES DC and IALD DC are so excited to share this creative & educational event with our local chapters! Thank you to our generous sponsors: Lighting Environments and Lucifer Lighting for making the event possible!
