Light is of immense importance in interior design and decor. It possesses the power to draw in or avert attention. Textiles, materials, and architectural features are enhanced by luminous color and intensity, with a shift in appearance upon slight adjustments in lighting controls. The right illumination can elevate your design to absolute perfection.
Automated technology has opened up awe-inspiring options for tunable lighting design. Simple touch and voice commands instantly and flawlessly change temperature, hue, brightness, and position. Intelligently designed LED lighting offers unlimited possibilities with incredible ease for every public or residential dwelling place.
Boutiques & Retail
Tunable light can be engineered specifically to align with the goal of each store. Lighting for retail directs attention, highlighting displays and influencing overall perception. With product families so broad, themes can be widely varied and robust, to create an atmosphere for any season or mood. This flexibility allows retailers to tune the light with just a tap of an iPad or smartphone, for adjustment of each individual area, including dressing rooms. The right light makes skin tone and materials look excellent. Shoppers are more likely to buy properly lit merchandise.
Resorts & Hotels
Tunable light welcomes and calms the guest so they can enjoy every aspect of the hotel experience, from the lobby and the spa to the guest rooms. Hotel lighting design influences everything about the perception of the space, including interior design, decor, mood, and character. LED bulbs can be attuned to the human circadian rhythm, with warm light in the early hours, bright blue hues into the early afternoon, and then a candlelight glow as evening falls. Automated lighting design can seamlessly add all of these layers.
Galleries & Museums
The right lighting can enable a piece of art to display its full purpose as well as the artist’s original intention, using a spectrum similar to the light that was present when the piece was created. Tunable light is customizable for each individual artifact in a room. A lighting designer can provide configuration for crisp white or soft warmth for luminous perfection. The flexibility of automated lighting allows for various changes daily to increase appreciation of museum and gallery artifacts as well as the space itself.
LED light is absent of UV, which is beneficial for art. The wrong light exposure, including UV, can damage precious materials. Thoughtful lighting design is an important asset for the preservation of artifacts and an indispensable commodity for the proprietor.
Eateries, Cafes, & Bars
Today’s modern eateries require the right ambiance in every area of the space, from the kitchen to the dining room. Lighting in the bar and lobby sets the mood while guests are waiting for a table or enjoying a cocktail. Certain areas of the restaurant can be hidden or highlighted to direct guests attention according to the intention of the proprietor. Tunable lighting influences the vibrancy of the staff, the creativity of the chef, and the appearance of the food. The right lighting plan will elevate perception, ensure loyalty, and enhance the culinary experience.
Experience the Light
Innovative advancements in light technology combined with automated design have essentially created a language for light. Natural cool and warm hues influence space, time, biology, and perception. With possibilities as infinite as the spectrum of light itself, lighting design is changing the way we experience the space around us.
