A Chorus of Voices: CannonDesign's Lighting Studio Commits to "mindful MATERIALS" Pledge

We are pleased to announce that CannonDesign’s Lighting Studio has signed onto the Lighting Advocacy Letter, inspired by the AIA Materials Pledge as part of the mindful MATERIALS Library.

The mindful MATERIALS Library is a global collaboration hub designed to bring the best and brightest minds in the built environment’s healthy materials economy together. The lighting design community recently came together to make a commitment to prioritize sustainability by ensuring that healthy, high-performing luminaires become the industry standard. The Lighting Advocacy Letter provides structure and a public pledge for designers, specifiers, building owners, developers, manufacturers, and contractors in the lighting industry.

CannonDesign’s award-winning Lighting Design Studio became one of the first signatories on this pledge.

“Like the mindful MATERIALS mantra states, individual voices make noise, but when we work together, we can create a signal,” said Sara Schonour, LC, IALD, Director of the Lighting Studio. “I’m proud to add CannonDesign to the chorus of voices that are finding harmony and amplification around the critically important topic of sustainability, and I’m excited for the wave of change I hope we’ll see as a result of designers and specifiers asking for the next generation of sustainably-conceived products.”
