Our Mission





The International Landscape Lighting Institute (illi) informs, educates and preserves the art of landscape lighting, allowing people to safely and securely navigate in the dark, while providing a beautiful environment at night.


Our Vision

For the entire history of mankind, humans have looked up at the night sky.

When we design landscape lighting, we reveal a whole new world - elements in a garden are seen in a new way.  Plantings, structures, art and water take on new dimensions and appearances.  Lighting gives us back a primordial visual connection to nature, which is otherwise lost in the darkness.  We see the seasons unfold through our windows and receive comfort in the night.
