Lighting Design: Adequate use of Novel Light Systems to Comfort Human Needs and Safety

The discipline of ‘Lighting Design’ (or: Architectural lighting design) is a field within architecture, interior design and electrical engineering that is concerned with the design of novel lighting systems. It concerns the use of natural and artificial light, or a combination both, to serve human needs in workspaces, living and leisure areas, and safety requirements.

Light – An Astonishing Medium

Light is a technically difficult yet astonishing medium that requires mastery of varied and continually evolving disciplines. A practice designing with light integrates the art, science and business of illumination design and implementation far beyond concerns of visibility and horizontal footcandles.

Good Lighting is of Vital Importance

There are some important questions that should be considered when planning a new project, specifically: Is “good” illumination important to your project? What is good lighting and how can it be achieved?

A Lighting designer works as part of a design team and, like architects do, charging fees for the services provided. Professional lighting designers bring a touch of solid technical acumen and sensitive design technique to architectural and landscape projects. Their value-added services can make or break the success of a project.

Lighting Design – Needs and Purposes

The design process of a new light scheme takes account of:

▪ The kind of activity for which lighting is to be provided (task lighting, leisure, safety, etc.);

▪ The amount of light required: Light intensities should differ related to the function of a room or task to be performed while keeping a close eye on the system efficacy and other cost drivers and environmental factors;

▪ The distribution of light within the space to be lighted, whether it concerns an indoor or outdoor environment;

▪ The color of the light as it may affect the views of particular objects and the environment as a whole;

▪ The effect of the light system itself on the user (glare, interaction, comfort).

The final objective of lighting design is the human response and interaction, to see clearly and without discomfort, while performing the task he is committed to, or to enjoy the atmosphere he is in.

The objective of architectural designer lighting is to further the design of architecture or the experience of buildings and other physical structures.

Luximprint and (Future) Lighting Design

We believe Luximprint Additive Optics Fabrication technology, combined with Faceted Lens Technology for fast optics design opens doors to a totally different and much more efficient approach of lighting development and specification.
