General lighting in the office that relies primarily on indirect lighting (diffuse light), supplemented by directional light in the area of workstations, relaxation areas and meeting zones.
The angle of incidence and number of light sources is indicated by the shadows with directional lighting.
When planning directional lighting components, the expectations of light direction and light colour resulting from the elementary experience of daylight should be taken into account. Thus, the directed light comes from above or laterally, but never from below. The colour of sunlight is significantly warmer than that of diffuse daylight. Therefore, lighting in which directional light comes obliquely from above and has a warmer light colour than diffuse general lighting is perceived as natural. The use of deviating light directions and colour temperature combinations is possible, but leads to particularly striking effects.
