A6 Light Design Approaches (SIU Teams)

Lighting Types and Methods: Lighting is classified by intended use as general, accent, or task lighting, depending largely on the distribution of the light produced by the fixture. Click Group 1 to see the example.

Indoor and Outdoor Lighting/Special Uses: The difference between lighting interior and exterior spaces is manifest, so the fixtures to do it. The search for effects, ambiences, and much kind of settings has developed a wide variety of tools and devices. There are also special uses that demand specific tailored solutions. Click Group 1 to see the example.

Measurements and Photometric Studies: Photometry is the science of the measurement of light, in terms of its perceived brightness to the human eye. In modern photometry, the radiant power at each wavelength is weighted by a luminosity function that models human brightness sensitivity. Click Group 1 to see the example.

Shadow and Color Properties: During the daytime, a shadow cast by an opaque object illuminated by sunlight has a bluish tinge. The opaque object is able to block the light of the sun, but not the ambient light of the sky which is blue as the atmosphere molecules scatter blue light more effectively. As a result, the shadow appears bluish. However, with artificial light results are widely multifarious. Click Group 1 or Group 2 to see the examples.

Energy and Lighting Control Systems: Power efficiently management and distribution is widely developed nowadays. Lighting control systems serve to provide the right amount of light where and when it is needed. They are intelligent network based lighting control solution that incorporate communication between various system inputs and outputs related to lighting control with the use of one or more central computing devices. Design strategies for ventilation, indoor air quality, and personal control systems. Click Group 1 or Group 2 to see the examples.

Health Effects and Light Pollution: Some people have conditions that react to light. They might be affected by the growing use of energy saving lamps and the development of new lighting technologies by this shift. Light pollution is the excessive, misdirected, or obtrusive use of artificial light. Click Group 1  to see the example.

Led Lamps and New Technologies: New and accelerated developing technologies on lighting have arrived on today’s market opening all kind of new uses and applications. From sensors to self-maintaining devices as well as the use of diodes and other electronic components we are entering into a novel “enlightening” era. Click Group 1 or Group 2 to see the examples.
