Color-tunable lighting is an exciting and relatively new lighting technology that affords the user an ability to control light color to adapt, soften, and elevate human experiences and environments to particular functions throughout the day, on demand.
Besides providing additional lighting with minimal glare in commercial applications such as offices, classrooms and libraries, indirect lighting can also highlight architectural ceiling details such as beams, pipes and other distinctive ceiling traits.
For the versatile, upscale look, designers often recommend trimless recessed lighting. The term trimless recessed refers to recessed lighting which contains no visible trim ring. The installation of trimless recessed lighting is more involved. Here are tips we believe will help ensure a clean, professional installation.
Unlike wireless lighting systems like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Mesh is designed for large collections of devices, numbering into the thousands. Switches, HVAC, sensors, light fixtures, and shades can communicate with each other by forwarding a message, or command, across all the devices in that Bluetooth chain until reaching the destination to perform said operation, (i.e. turn ON the 3rd floor office lights). The communication, instead of passing through your WiFi router, comes from the originating device and travels from light fixture to sensor, to AC unit, to any other chain of Bluetooth Mesh enabled devices, like a Bluetooth highway or a body’s central nervous system, until the command reaches the lights on the 3rd floor.
If the work of lighting design was just left to services engineers to meet regulation-determined illuminance criteria per application, then interior and exterior architectural spaces would become soulless environments. Using qualitative measurements, architects and lighting designers can make sure the architectural intention and aesthetic character of a space is not compromised.
Essentially, volumetric lighting refers to the illusion created when a lighting technique suggests a certain perspective, orientation or effect that increases, enhances or magnifies the sense of volume in a given space, context or application. In residential and commercial lighting design, volumetric lighting is often synonymous with task lighting. Light fixtures designed with optics that have a fully luminous and distinguishable beam spread and can be directed, with purpose, to light art, a table, produce in a market, etc.
Choosing the right lighting for any space can be a complex decision. Considerations need to be made with respect to the purpose, form and function of the lighting application. Design and aesthetics also play a role in the equation. With so many options for lighting on the market, it takes specialized knowledge and understanding to determine the best fit for your space.
