Continuing education: 1.0 AIA & IDCEC Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) Learning Unit DESCRIPTIONLight-manipulating materials use internal channels to capture, bend, scatter, and redirect light and create visually stunning spaces. Panels and slabs in resin, glass, and terrazzo create an experiential surface for privacy screens or signage, primary or accent lighting, countertops or flooring—anywhere the interplay of light and shadow is desired for beauty and inspiration. This course describes the different types of light-manipulating materials and substrates as well as the design and installation options for a wide range of dynamic, unique applications LEARNING OBJECTIVES1. Compare and contrast light-filtering, light-emitting, and interactive light-manipulating materials in terms of how they capture, bend, and redirect light from ambient sources with no power needed or with energy-efficient LEDs2.

Explain how materials maximize light while reducing glare, extend light deeper into and distribute it within a space, provide privacy without seclusion, and operate as energy-efficient primary or accent lighting3. Discuss the performance attributes of resin, glass, and terrazzo substrates and their available design options including sizes, surface finishes, lighting solutions, color, shapes, and graphics4. Describe application examples and mounting options for secure installation, and5. Integrate designer/architect feedback regarding how these materials enrich the experience of a space through various case studies ABOUT THE SPONSORSensitile® is an internationally-recognized designer and manufacturer of inspiring and sustainable materials for a wide range of architectural and design applications.Material design, prototyping, manufacturing, detailing, fabrication, packaging and shipping, all occur exclusively from our only location, in Michigan USA.

Each material line has a unique aesthetic that dynamically integrates and interacts with different environments and its inhabitants to create unforgettable experiences. Our hand-crafted materials are not simply stamped from stock but start from raw materials. Each has a unique story as it goes through the iterative, detailed process of production. We offer a spectrum of solution packages, which include combinations of materials and hardware and/or lighting. Each component is carefully customized to the design intent and fine-tuned to integrate with each other and, as a whole, to the installed environment. Alternatively, for a more hands-on approach, our materials can be purchased by the sheet and fabricated for installation. We are very experienced with large orders, international projects, roll-outs, and brand standardization, and provide full support to our customers from early design to installation and through the life of the material.

Just as we are committed to excellence and innovation in the creation of our award-winning materials, we strive to find new ways to integrate environmentally-conscious practices into our work culture and the manufacturing process, from procurement through shipping. No volatile compounds (VOCs) are emitted during the production of our materials or during their installed life-cycle. Our commitment to sustainability and the environment also fuels our tireless efforts to increase the recycled content in our materials. The high degree of optical clarity required of our raw materials makes this quest challenging. However, we are pleased to announce a milestone achievement - nearly all our materials, including light fixtures, now incorporate recycled content.
