It is now well known how the use of light can condition the physiological and psychological well-being of individuals, make the stay in a place more or less comfortable, as well as influence the aesthetic enhancement of an environment.
The lighting designer is the professional who is able to control the design behind good lighting.
LIGHTING DESIGN AS ART
It is an art because it is a form of creativity that can emphasise the special features of a certain space.
The designer must be aware of how much and in what way light influences people’s moods. Every place, moreover, has its own specificity and in order to illuminate it in the right way, it must be analysed in depth.
LIGHTING DESIGN AS A SCIENCE
This profession is also a science, as it requires the necessary scientific and technical knowledge.
Light with its characteristics must be examined and calibrated in relation to its interaction with colours, materials, as well as the morphological and spatial values of an environment.
It is also necessary to know how light affects man, fauna and vegetation in the location.
Finally, there is an extensive legislative and regulatory panorama that the professional must know and respect.
QUANTUM AND LIGHTING DESIGNERS
By now, the transition from electric to electronic LED light is well established, but these are still complex solutions that require specialist skills and increasingly accurate designs.
At Quantum, we know that lighting can sometimes be perceived as something that can be “adjusted” during use, which is why we rely on our Lighting Designers for ad hoc projects based on the real needs of client companies.
Indeed, it is important to be supported by competent professionals who are able to grasp the overall picture of all requirements.
