Lighting Design & Specification

LCC Grand Opening

On June 20, 2017 Philips held the grand opening of its new Lighting Concept Centre (LCC) at 281 Hillmount Road, Markham. The LCC is designed to demonstrate the fundamental principles of lighting and design.

Philips has been promoting education through its Lighting Concepts Centres for many years, and this newest location is their latest demonstration of commitment to education and advancement of lighting technology.

The opening was kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony that saw Mike Gentile, President and CEO at Philips Lighting Canada, Frank Scarpitti, Mayor of Markham, and Ellen Godson, Senior Manager for Philips Lighting University, officially open and lead a sizeable crowd into the new centre.

From the entranceway in Philips has incorporated varied lighting technology and research into an open and intuitive area. LDS received a fully guided tour and breakdown of the centre from Chad Mitchell, Director of Product Marketing at Philips North America and Annie Stavridis, Integrated Communications Manager for Philips Lighting Canada.

The LCC showcases lighting in the environment it is expected to perform. The centre has a hospital room, retail setting, office space, lighting control panel displays and agriculture zone to mention but a few. Our guide Chad Mitchell was highly knowledgeable in these areas and stressed how far lighting has come and why it is important to consider lighting beyond simply illumination.

Philips is focused on human-centric lighting and take this into consideration when developing lighting for facilities like hospitals, where Philips has taken lighting to the point where the lighting in your hospital room is healthy and can help in the healing process. Each area of the centre uncovered new and exciting advances including Visual Light Communication (VLC), assorted options for office lighting, illuminated textiles, and the ability for lighting in grocery stores to not only better highlight food products but even prolong the shelf life of fresh foods.

The Centre not only showcased technology that is available now but through a virtual reality experience Philips took attendees into the future and explore a fully integrated Smart City.

These features make the center a hub of lighting knowledge, and through Philips seminars it is possible for anyone to learn about this technology and the science behind advanced lighting. For information on available courses and registration see, https://www.education.lighting.philips.com
