Guiding and leading with light

How does light help to safely and quickly achieve a destination?

Showing the way with light

Finding your way about in large public buildings such as civil authorities, universities, railway stations and airports is a major challenge. To enable visitors and users to move around buildings in a reliable and safe way, circulation routes and areas such as stairways and lift foyers should be visually emphasised. Linear lighting is highly suitable for marking routes. Routes into the distance such as corridors or steps should not lead into darkness: vertical lighting helps here to mark the destination point and make it recognisable from a distance.
