Using light to provide orientation
Light which is positioned around buildings, to illuminate car parks, for example, or pathways and entrance areas, must in the first instance ensure safety and orientation. Glare-free surroundings create optimum viewing conditions making it easy for the human eye to adapt to lower illuminance levels. Dark Sky technology ensures that the light is directed exactly where it is intended on the ground without randomly emitting spill light into the night sky.
Subtle floor lighting using façade luminaires or bollards positioned on the sides, for instance, ideally illuminates the floor surface. A wide light distribution with uniform LED light enables an efficient design solution that allows luminaires to be spaced far apart. Dark Sky techology ensures that the light is directed where it is intended on the ground and stands apart from the separate façade lighting. As slim objects defining the area, bollard luminaires additionally act as robust design elements delineating and structuring spaces.
