Presenter: Stefan R. Graf, Principal IALD, LC, IESNA
Stefan Graf began his career as a lighting designer in an era that revolutionized lighting design for the concert touring industry. In the late 60's, Graf provided services for a variety of international concert and theatrical productions. In 1975, Graf founded Fantasee Lighting to serve unique lighting needs of video, corporate theater, exhibits and stage shows. While with Fantasee, Graf developed the 1st automated stage light. Graf is a now a leader in exhibit lighting, and was one of the first lighting designers to bring automated fixtures to the North American International Auto Show. As the market changed, Graf saw the need for a design firm that focused on the needs of commercial, retail, and residential architectural projects and founded Illuminart. Graf and his team at Illuminart provide professional architectural lighting design services that deliver value engineered, sustainable lighting solutions for clients such as Walt Disney Imagineering, Ford Motor Land Development, DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, Volvo, Haworth, and Circuit City. Graf has received over 38 International Illumination Design Awards, including two IIDA Awards of Distinction, and his projects have been featured in a variety of industry publications, including Lighting Dimensions, LD&A, and Architectural Lighting magazine. Graf, an active member of the design community, is a proponent of sustainable design through cost effective design programs.
