Accentuation

Emphasising objects to attract attention

Accentuation

Accentuation Accentuation

Accent light emphasises individual objects or architectural elements using narrow beams of light. Bright points in dark surroundings attract attention. They separate the important from the unimportant, allowing individual objects to come to the fore.
Accent lighting enables good appreciation of form and surface structure. The focused light produces pronounced shadows and good modelling ability, as well as brilliance. A narrow beam and a high brightness contrast to the surroundings give the object particular emphasis.

Accent lighting creates points of interest and improves the local visual performance, e.g. at the work place. Structures and textures of objects are clearly emphasised by the directed light.

- exhibitions
- museums
- sales and presentation areas
- restaurants, cafés, wine bars
- working areas

Preferred luminaire groups:
- spotlights
- contour spotlights
