Isabelle Corten

Isabelle Corten

Light and the city are central to the preoccupations of Isabelle Corten. The professional experience of this lighting designer has been gained through successful projects in Belgium and abroad. Light cannot be confined within the overly restrictive constraints of a sometimes narcissistic exercise in style. Rather, it is an issue of social cohesion. Isabelle Corten does not, therefore, limit herself simply to designing the lighting or illumination for a site. She adds that extra something that is the hallmark of a resolutely political approach. No doubt, her training as a town planner leads her to constantly question the meaning of her approach. The town, a living space inhabited by men, women and children reflects its social framework. A street, a square, an avenue or a tree, all become another prism through which to comprehend the urban reality. It is therefore possible to develop different types of lighting to reflect a social order. Isabelle Corten has shown that this is so.

What is Guerrilla Lighting?

For the first time in Sweden, be part of a guerilla light event

Guerrilla lighting is a war on bad lighting, guerrilla lighting is a protest against wasteful use of light but most of all, guerrilla lighting is about having fun and raising the awareness of the power of light Professionally designed architectural lighting enhances the nightscape of our cities and towns but requires the use of energy. In order to ensure that a correct balance is achieved between the benefits of good lighting and irresponsible use of energy more control is required. We believe that this control should include the control of architectural lighting of buildings. required. We believe that this control should include the control of architectural lighting of buildings.

  • not all buildings need or deserve to be lit – strategic lighting plans should exist for all cities
  • architectural lighting is not a competition – brighter is not better
  • poorly designed and installed lighting should be prevented – cities should establish and enforce a minimum standard of quality
  • all wasteful use of light should be prevent – leaving the lights on all night in large glazed offices should be a criminal offence

Guerrilla lighting creates ephemeral and magical moments of quality lighting that are recorded and sent to the media and politicians to instigate action against bad lighting
