CannonDesign’s Sara Schonour recently contributed her ideas and experiences to a Building Design + Construction story – Beyond LEDs – that just published in their April issue. The story features numerous opinions and ideas about how LEDs are becoming a preferred technology for designers, including data from Forbes – that projects LEDs will capture 70% of the global lighting market by 2020, up from 31% in 2015 – and – that estimates the value of LEDs’ market share las year at $25.7 Billion.

The full story can be read online and in print and quotes Schonour extensively while also featuring an image of the team’s recent EMD Millipore project. Below are key excerpts from the piece as well.

On LEDs and Change
“LEDs proved that this industry could change – and the lighting industry is now asking, what’s next?”

On LEDs and the Need for Standardization
“There is a lot of junk out there (when it comes to LEDs). Most suppliers have specific niches, and just because somebody’s down lights are fabulous doesn’t mean their lineals are great.”

On Research Partnership
“Schonour says CannonDesign is looking for a partner to engage in research to test LED color tuning synced with circadian patterns in a classroom setting, to see if lighting can be used as a teaching tool.”
