Lighting practice

On the basis of our empirical values and the suggestions of architects and planners, we have compiled room situations for which light planning is frequently required. In the following, we shall present possible illumination solutions for these architectural situations. All technical lighting standards are of course met. Our suggested degree of illuminance may even exceed the standard in some cases. For us, the aesthetics of light and a high level of visual comfort are important criteria for such decisions.

At the same time, the form and the size of the luminaires must fit into the architectural surroundings. For example, we often recommend larger models if a structure has large dimensions – even if smaller luminaires with lower output would be enough. In such cases, the degree of illuminance can be reduced to a suitable level by means of a light control system.
