The juxtaposition of ambient lighting and dedicated lighting concepts shows the full extent of architectural lighting. In addition to providing the basic requirements for vision, this also encompasses highly individual lighting solutions, starting from functional to atmospheric considerations. While the number of possible variations for ambient lighting is relatively small, countless approaches are available to interpret the space using dedicated lighting designs.
Luminaires in the indoor and outdoor areas enable fine graduations to be made in perspective between foreground, middle ground and background. Directed accent light provides a basis to emphasise specific zones. Wallwashers and floodlights complement the ambient lighting allowing contrasts to be created between bright vertical and horizontal surfaces. Luminous objects on tables and projected light are used to create decorative and eye-catching features.
