Managing Editor, Line Goyette The importance of staying in sync with demographic trends

In this issue we invite you to meet Serge Le Myre, the founding president of Éclairage Dimension Plus. The course of his career and his company illustrate very well the connection between the different industry segments that exist at the core of lighting projects that can be industrial or minimalist. It reminds us of the importance of combining market trends with demographic changes to better reflect and meet contemporary demands. A new vision for illuminating the City of London offers important lessons for urban lighting. Read more about it here. Also, understand the link between the Internet of Things and intelligent lighting. Are they inseparable? Good reading!
