It is said that all good documentaries start with a question. We are not saying that we have made a good documentary but we have definitely asked a question…
The development of light and lighting has always been about the search for the “Perfect” Light. Unlike any light source development before, LEDs have superseded all other sources and potentially rendered them obsolete. Is LED therefore the Perfect Light? Are we in the middle of the greatest revolution since the invention of the light bulb?
Our film asks lighting designers around the globe for their thoughts, memories and opinions on light sources, lighting design and how they would define the Perfect Light.
