Down with Downlights!    Viva la iluminación!

Tight budgets tying your hands?
Energy standards dampening your creativity?
Greater efficiency doesn't have to mean the death of eccentricity.
LED has given us more than lumens per Watt, it gives us the chance
to rethink forms of lighting fixtures-from the breathtakingly large scale, to the refined and demure-and to produce them at a price point
rivaling less ambitious designs.

         Our Presenter:

Mike Miner

 is the VP of Sales for Axolight USA. Based in Virginia, educated in Spain, he started his career in lighting in China, and since helped to design, manufacture and market lighting products around the world.
