For more than 10 years now, Luminale has been held every two years, alongside the Light+Building trade fair. With its 140,000 visitors at the last event (in 2012), it is now firmly established internationally as the Biennale of Lighting Culture.
Luminale forms the evening programme for the 195,000 or so visitors to Light+Building. The combination of trade fair and city event transforms Frankfurt and its surrounding Rhine-Main region into a unique centre for lighting-related issues and brings together anyone who is anyone in the sector from manufacturers to designers and artists. It is an opportunity to see and be seen; an opportunity that occurs – in this concentrated form, at least – only once every two years during Light+Building. A shuttle service links the trade fair and the city.
Luminale is a platform for ideas and innovations that relate to lighting, energy efficiency, the application of new technologies and materials and to the quality of life in our towns and cities. Participation in Luminale is a tried and tested instrument for gaining public attention.
