Artificial light has revolutionized our environment like almost no other medium. Today, we are experiencing a profound change in the world of artificial light, with as yet unforeseeable consequences for people's lives. Lightopia presents icons and examples of lighting design, setting them in a broader cultural and historical context.

The publication comprises three separate books in a slipcase.

In volume 1, renowned authors take a close look at the cultural history of light in a number of essays dealing with topics as diverse as the scenographic significance of light or its psychological aspects.

Volume 2 presents a selection of the 100 most important luminaires from the collection of the Vitra Design Museum dating from 1900 to today and includes texts on the development of lighting design.

In volume 3, interviews with well-known lighting designers and artists explore how new illumination technologies revolutionize the creative use of light today.

With its three volumes, Lightopia constitutes a unique compendium of lighting design. It is opulently illustrated and encompasses an exceptional spectrum of examples from design, art, and architecture; with works by Olafur Eliasson, Gino Sarfatti, Ingo Maurer, Mischer Traxler, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Richard Sapper, Achille Castiglioni, Ulrike Brandi, Pieke Bergmans and many others.
