The IES website has profiled Naomi Johnson Miller, principal of Naomi Miller Lighting Design in Troy, NY, as a “featured member.” I saw this as a perfect excuse to write my own ode to Naomi and her work.
Naomi is one of those designers who makes the lighting profession a profession. Her award-winning projects have advanced the art and application of lighting and her tireless volunteer contributions to the IES and lighting industry for more than 30 years have advanced our understanding of light and design. She has contributed to numerous publications, including Illuminate, LD+A, the IES Handbook and the Advanced Lighting Guidelines. Her Lightfair seminars are must-go events. IES has recognized her contributions with a Distinguished Service Award and two Presidential Awards. Over the past year, I had the pleasure of working with Naomi on the development of the IES QVE Light + Design: A Guide to Designing Lighting for People and Buildings (DG-18) publication, which is due out soon.
