Direct and aimed general lighting produces an even illumination on the horizontal working plane. The architecture is visible and it is possible to orientate oneself and work in the room.
The directed light produces good modelling and brilliance. The uniformity on the working plane increases as the room height increases or as the beam angle widens. Directed light enables good appreciation of form and surface texture. The visual comfort increases as the cut-off angle increases. A feature of direct illumination is its highly efficient use of energy. At the work place, secondary glare must be taken into consideration.
