Using light to provide orientation in rooms

orientation lighting

Orientation lighting is defined first and foremost by the task of providing orientation. This can be done using luminaires that provide visibility or ones that act as a sign. Floor washlights and wall-mounted downlights provide orientation by illuminating either the floor surface or the room. Orientation luminaires and recessed floor luminaires typically provide orientation by being arranged into lines or by marking out areas.
Low illumination levels are sufficient for orientation purposes. Small luminaires with high luminance clearly set themselves apart form their surroundings.
