We explore the two most elusive building elements, water and light and their interactions. Learn how to safely and efficiently make use of their full combined potential.
This seminar is aimed at system designers and integrators for lighting solutions in public and private swimming pools and water features. Considering the most important parameters and the interaction of light and water is critical to the choice of the right lighting instrument for the mission requirements.

In the area of interior design, the role of light goes beyond its functional duty, i.e. to make it possible for us to see something. Light transcends its rational frames and moves into the zone of irrational, even spiritual. This is particularly the case with natural light which, unlike artificial light, is much more complex in its appearance and besides, it is also hard to tame. Despite its »non-materiality«, light represents a unique building material. That statement can be supported by numerous architectural creations which, due to their exquisite lighting design, are raised above an ambient level to the level of milieu, where an architectural experience shifts from worldly to spiritual. Light, and consequently shadow, can make architecture meaningful and set it into a certain geographical and cultural context of place and time. Between the Sun, which still remains our most durable and sustainable source of light, and a candle flame, which is considered the most intimate lighting, lies an endless sea of possibilities which are, on one hand, supported by modern technology, and on the other by creative excellence and well-considered, innovative use of light in interior design.
Exploring the above-mentioned aspects is precisely what this year’s Big Architecture Festival will be about.
This workshop will give an overview of generic lighting concepts for water/underwater features, will present the general guidelines and showcase the possible lighting tools. Furthermore it intends to show the potential of these elements within the overall lighting scheme, present new conceptual approaches as well as technical developments around the topic. Technical and design-related limitations, restrictions and principles will be reviewed for alternative approaches and solutions to positively develop a more pleasant lighting scheme. The intent is to share and co-create potentially new applications, ultimately leading to the benefit of more designers and planners.
The Arpool series is growing with the addition of the IRIS solutions, the first fully submersible adjustable lighting solutions on the market. The IRIS comes in 3 versions, the Arpool Iris, Arpool Iris Bifecta and Arpool Iris Trifecta each offering a unique application and variations in lighting effects for underwater architecture.
The uniqueness of this solution requires an in-depth understanding and techical knowledge about this instrument to start implementing it in your projects.
Our underwater lighting proffesionals are at your complete disposal for an online training session to provide you all you need to design lighting in underwater architecture.
The workshop is going digital! Check in at Hall 4.2. Stand J41 and get a taste of the most hands on workshop in the industry. See the products live and learn how to enhance your water features and pools with light.
Finally a workshop under the clear blue sky. No need for closed and heated pool here. Join us for the classic "Make a Splash" workshop. Pool lighting talk by the pool!
Feel free to bring a swimsuit, plenty of room in the pool for everybody!
Co-presented by lighting designer Paul Ehlert who was actively involved in the concept of this workshop. Paul is currently Head of Lighting at Lenum AG/LI and EK Energieonzepte AG/CH and has extensive project experience on lighting projects around the world.
The focus of this half-day workshop is how to work with lighting on water, in water and around water in a holistic way, acknowledging the possible effects of lighting and the importance of water features in architecture, interiors and landscape.
It will provide an overview of generic lighting concepts for water/underwater features, present general guidelines, and showcase possible lighting tools.

A warm (34°) welcome and a cold drink greeted our lighting enthusiasts for our second UK demo of submersible lighting.
Continous linear, anti-glare louvres, different beam spread and colours were explored and discussed.
The showcasing of pool fittings actually in the water and not just against an office wall has proven useful and appreciated and we love the level of participation and involvement from the crowd.
