Working and presentation models for lighting designs

One of the significant advantages resulting from the use of models is that light is not just represented but becomes effective. Lighting effects are visualised in all their complexity, not merely schematised. A further advantage of models is the aspect of interaction in that the observer can accurately check every angle. A distinction has to be made here between a working model and a presentation model.



A mock-up is a reproduction of a room situation at a scale of 1:1. A mock-up of the luminaire or the architectural space concerned is ideal as a basis for decisions specifically when assessing customised luminaires or luminaires which are to be integrated into the architecture. To limit the effort involved, a mock-up is based on an architectural section for maximum benefit.
