What makes an evening out at the hottest new restaurant memorable? The food? The service? Your date? Or maybe it was the lighting? Ever wonder how lighting influences your dining experience? Yeah, us too!

Our team designs lots of restaurants, so we have no shortage of opinions on what makes that experience really wonderful – but we wanted hard facts and statistics to back it up. So, we put our “scientist” hats on and analyzed lighting in dozens of New York restaurants, and then tested all different kinds of lighting treatments to uncover the magic recipe. Come see what we learned!

A Diamond Pass to this year's Lightfair International conference in Chicago will be raffled off to one lucky attendee!

This presentenation is in partnership with Lightfair International

His goal has been to blend architecture and light in unique ways that create memorable experiences. Brett has collaborated with world-renowned design professionals on projects such as Atmosphere Restaurant on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Tavern on the Green in New York City, and the Space Shuttle Pavilion at the Intrepid Museum, among countless others. Brett has been honored with multiple lighting design awards, including multiple Lumen Awards and IES Awards of Excellence. Some of his speaking experience includes the HD Expo, the National Arts Club, the IES's International Lighting Journey, and the Professional Lighting Design Convention in Rome.
