      Panel discussion: The challenge of human-centric design

      John Mcrae of Orms, Karen van Creveld of Karen van Creveld Lighting Design, Mark Ridler of BDP, Mary Rushton-Beales of Lighting Design House
      The advent of human-centric lighting represents a huge challenge to the lighting design community. Will we stand on the sidelines while a new design community of specialists develops? Or do we embrace it as part of our role? Should we accept a role as quasi-medical practitioners? How do we responsibly turn scientific knowledge into practical application? Our panel of designers and scientists debate the issues.
