The Code is Lumens for 2015! CODE, the International Conference on Design of the School of Fashion and Design at GD Goenka University (GDG-SoFD), India, will have as its theme ‘The Art of Attraction: Lighting Design for Retail Interiors’ aimed at bringing together international experts to discuss lighting design & technology for the retail and commercial establishments.
The lighting industry in India is 95 billion rupee worth, growing steadily at 12% CAGR and is expected to maintain this growth rate over the next decade. The growth is being fuelled by rapid development of infrastructure & real state, exponential growth of middle class income and the upsurge of the retail boom across India. At the same time the lighting industry has undergone a huge transformation in terms of technology upgradation, new product innovation, creative lighting design and new areas of application. In addition there has been a strong emphasis on energy conservation and sustainability as lighting alone consumes 18% of the energy generated in India.
