The Associations Lounge was, for 2023, the shared home of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID).

Furnished by leading Danish brand muuto, the space saw the two associations host existing and potential new members, while running various social activities throughout the two-day event.

On the opening day of the show, the IALD took on the space and co-hosted a late-night drink offering from 5pm onwards – all visiting designers welcome.

While on the second day of the show, the BIID took over, with a complementary LiGHT LUNCH following its panel discussion as part of [d]arc thoughts.

The Associations Lounge was a welcome pit-stop from the hustle and bustle of the show floor for visiting designers, who were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy complementary refreshments, while socialising with new and existing peers. This was be a key networking destination at LiGHT 23.
