By its annual event, Philips brings a mixture of fashion, style and lighting with a focus on the retail world. The 2008 theme: ‘Experience fashion in a whole new light’.
The scenography of D’art Design pivoted around the concept of three separate ‘Fashion & Light-islands’, each providing an up-and-coming fashion designer combined with a young, talented light design student. Consequently, three different concepts were created in which the light designers each provided a unique theme to accompany the work of the fashion designers. Each island became a unique showcase for the future in fashion and lighting. ACT Lighting Design was responsible for the lighting and event design. Koert Vermeulen was also in charge of the selection of the young lighting designers and coached them during the realization of their creative concepts in terms of dramatic visual effects.
