Natural light influences our mood in addition to circadianrhythms and can improve comfort and productivity in a work environment.According to an HMG study titled "Effects of daylighting on retail salesperformance," the inclusion of skylights ranks third among statisticallysignificant elements that can boost sales volume. Additionally, HMG looked intothe amount of daylighting in classrooms, and they discovered a significantcorrelation between those schools and the improvement of more than 10% in testscores. Use lights with warmer color temperatures—those between 2,700 and 3,000Kelvin—and lessen the intensity with dimmers at night.
"Light has the power to recreate distinct sensationsand experiences; it has a lot greater capacity to create an atmosphere thanfurniture or an accessory can." A partner at WannaOne studio named CathyFigueiredo understands that "light is a vital aspect of interior designand it must be worked on from the beginning of a project." It is obviousright away if it hasn't been done properly. Even if we are in the most stunninglocation on earth, we will not be content with our experience if enough timehas not been spent on the study and design of the lighting.
Determining the experience, we want to create is crucialwhen building a room. While white and direct lighting stimulates our brains andenables us to see finer details, dim and indirect lighting will help you relaxand make the room feel more personal. "We select the kind of lightingbased on the imaginative notion we are working on and the space it will be in.Lighting is one of the aspects that we add to our spaces since it fulfills a requirementand is essential to the project as a whole.
If the world is divided into people who work in the dark andpeople who work in the light, the findings showed that we prefer the light on,and the stages inspired attendees almost equally. This, according to WannaOne,"opens up a very wide new creative field for lighting initiatives."
The important question now is whether we accord our home'sillumination the attention it merits. We are improving the lighting in ourhouses, according to Cathy Figuiredo. One of the keys to properly lighting ourhouses is to utilize a warm light temperature in the common spaces, combinedirect and indirect light to create various ambiances, and use LED strips inthe wardrobes, which is a simple tip that is highly practical for daily life.Like furniture, lighting is a personal choice. In the end, we don't live in thespaces, in the same manner, so while we can offer broad guidance, each propertymust be a real representation of its owners' preferences, she clarifies.
Depending on the kind of experience you wish to produce, thelighting will vary. They can be technical and have a purpose-driven design, butthey can also be purely aesthetic. This is true of the sculptural lamps thatare currently popular in lighting and which Arturo Lázarez creates in hisstudio.
A lighting designer's work also includes imaginativelighting projects on the streets that change the appearance of cities, inaddition to illuminating interiors and exteriors. Examples can be foundanywhere in the world, including the Festival of Lights in Lyon, Llum BCN, theSignal Festival in Prague, and the winter illuminations in Japan.
Bringing down the lighting's intensity lowers blood pressureand promotes relaxation. Avert blue light from your computer or phone andreduce the lighting in your bedroom to warmer color temperatures. Designerscontinue to use LED lighting due to its flexibility in brightness levels andlight colors. LED technology advancements have produced several novelaccessories, such as LED skylights that resemble both the sky and a window.
These "skylights" provide light with the sametemperature as natural light, giving the room a feeling of vastness andenabling the inhabitants to experience a more uplifting environment. Thepurposeful application of light to produce functional or aesthetically pleasingresults is known as lighting. Illumination comprises the use of both naturallighting obtained by catching daylight and artificial lighting sources, such aslamps and lighting fixtures. The primary source of daylight in buildings isoccasionally natural sunlight, which comes from windows, skylights, or lightshelves.
We are improving the lighting in our houses, according toCathy Figuiredo. One of the keys to properly lighting our houses is to utilizea warm light temperature in the common spaces, combine direct and indirectlight to create various ambiances, and use LED strips in the wardrobes, whichis a simple tip that is highly practical for daily life. Like furniture,lighting is a personal choice. In the end, we don't live in the spaces, in thesame manner, so while we can offer broad guidance, each property must be a realrepresentation of its owners' preferences, she clarifies.
Using natural lighting instead of artificial lighting, whichaccounts for a significant portion of energy use in buildings, can save energy.According to Xema Varela of the Nanube interior design studio, the goal of arestaurant's interior design is to create an environment that psychologicallyattracts customers without their knowledge. To build such an environment, lightis a necessary component. According to lighting designer Michela Mezzavilla,"the technique of lighting a restaurant is halfway between theatricalstaging and a magic show." When it works, clients aren't consciouslythinking about it, but they feel good and want to repeat the experience, whichmakes an effect on the designers of the lighting design of a space.
Lighting, in the words of interior designer Iván Cotado,"is the cheapest and most influential tool that we can use to tap into thesubconscious of a person that is visiting a commercial space," and canchange their attitude toward making a purchase. A space's aesthetic appeal,task performance, and psychological consequences can all be enhanced by properlighting.
