Philips Lighting signs MoU with IIID

Our Bureau Pune | Updated on July 09, 2012 Published on July 09, 2012

Lighting company Philips Lighting, and Institute of Indian Interior Designers (IIID), the nodal body of interior designers in India, have formed an academic partnership to offer a professional certificate course in light and lighting (technology & application) for architects and interior designers.

Pune is the first city to offer this three-day certificate course for the members of the IIID Pune Regional Chapter. Philips will conduct this course in different IIID chapters across India and will provide the course curriculum, content, faculty support, product samples and other teaching aids.

Mr Sumit Joshi, Senior Director, Marketing, Philips Lighting India, said, “Light today is no longer purely functional, something to switch on and off as required. Today, light is being used in all sorts of ways to create the desired backdrop to our lives, whether to relax and unwind, to play, or to work, lighting can be used to create the right mood and ambience. With this MoU, we hope to enhance the interior designers’ and architects’ ability to bring together both art and science of lighting and give the perfect finishing touch to their work.”

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
