Entry DescriptionThe lighting team created an atmosphere of purity and contemplation for this sales gallery showcasing smart living. Echoing the high-tech theme, the lighting approach pursued the seamless integration of lighting into the environment.
The interior design expresses purity and cleanliness, with a predominantly white material palette as well as minimalistic styling. The lighting concept amplifies this concept. Solutions include large luminous surfaces to provide diffused ambient lighting, special details which allow downlights to be softly ‘moulded’ into ceilings for visual softness and sleek linear lights delineating key elements such as feature walls and the iconic spiral staircase.
A dimming system with scenes setting in important areas was catered for a good contrast ratio for daytime operations, while maintaining a stringent power density, as the sales gallery operates mostly in the day. All lights were sourced locally to meet the tight schedule while high lighting performance was secured as designed. Issues of reflected glare on LED displays were considered in the luminaire selection and placement, resulting in calm spaces that contrast with extensive dynamic displays.
