Message From The Editor

Managing Editor, Line Goyette Lighting at the heart of human gatherings

Lighting brings people together and shares emotions. I don't know if the arrival of the lightbulb aroused as much enthusiasm as that of the LED lighting, because we all believe that our generation is the first to live at the heart of novelty, but the technological and creative possibilities of lighting continually transcend the limits of the imaginary and this is what we see through the many projects and winners presented in this issue. Good reading!
