The new maxim concisely sums up our new approach: lighting tools that give the lighting designer and lighting user new, amazing possibilities to affect the lighting, allowing them more freedom and creative control. Shaping the light is now even easier, more individualistic and flexible. Digital control electronics enable more and more lighting parameters to be individually influenced. The interaction of control hardware, control software and addressable luminaires in the ERCO Light System DALI opens up new dimensions of scenographic design possibilities.
The potential to influence space through light is virtually unlimited. We refer to the practice of staging and controlling such transformations under the inclusion of
the time dimension as “scenographic light“.
Light in a shop takes on a wide variety of functions: it attracts attention through the visual effect of neon signs, windows and entrance areas.
In lighting concepts for gardens, parks or green areas, a scenographic approach must allow for the interaction of artificial light and environmental factors such as the weather and natural light.
Buildings with differentiated illumination signify the night time urban identity. Light in the city is used to mark out paths and routes, light up spaces and highlight landmarks.
It is light that allows us to see space and structure in the first place; and it is lighting that makes architecture and the people, objects and materials in it become visible.
The lighting communicates the themes of the event and supports its production with a progressive sequence of scenes. The magic of dynamic lighting effects envelops the space in changing colours of light.
