Using light to achieve extraordinary effects
Accent light emphasises vegetation, 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.
Illuminating large spatial zones
Washlighting illuminates larger objects or spatial zones using wide beam light distribution. In contrast to accent light, it conveys a wide impression. Washlighting enables safe movement on pathways and effectively highlights large objects and areas.
Ambient lighting produced by wide beam light distribution facilitates perception and orientation in the horizontal plane. It plays an important role in illuminating traffic zones to make pathways visible for safe movement.
Using light to facilitate orientation
Orientation lighting improves the perception by adding light points and lines, e.g. along pathways and on stairs. The light must function as a signal. Illuminating the surroundings is of secondary importance here.
