The configuration of light and of the luminaires influences the atmosphere as much in public spaces as in the private sphere. In the entrance to a building, the café, the bar and the interior and exterior seating arrangements all form islands for private communication. The warm-tinted accent lighting separates the seating areas from the general thoroughfare. Pendant luminaires both in small and large formats visually identify individual areas from above. The ambient lighting is provided by a combination of diffuse light from above and wallwashers in the floor.
