Designers Lighting Forum lecture by Heather Libonati / Luminesce Design, on Tuesday, November 12, 2013


3M Headquarters
A Corporate Makeover 50 years in the making
“3M’s 1960s corporate headquarters was in need of a makeover; the goals: bringing light levels and energy consumption in compliance with current standards, conveying a sense of innovation ad show-casing 3M’s products.


The Designers Lighting Forum presents lighting designer Heather Libonati to demonstrate how this project combines open spaces, higher light levels, energy efficiency and the owner’s own lighting products into a cohesive design.”

Heather Libonati is President of Luminesce Design and a Senior Lecturer in the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors Department where she teaches Lighting Fundamentals and Advanced Lighting Design. Prior to founding her own firm, Luminesce, in 2006, Heather was an Associate Lighting Designer with Kaplan Gehring McCarroll Architectural Lighting Design, and with Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design. Heather holds an M.F.A. in Theatre Design from California Institute of the Arts and a B.A. in Theater from Loyola University Chicago.
