Managing Editor, Line Goyette When performance steps back and beauty steps up

It happens sometimes that we have an opportunity to shift our focus from technical performance and admire instead the results of technological prowess combined with design expertise. In this issue we present peer-reviewed projects. Lighting is definitely no longer a matter of just lightbulbs.
