The art of lighting is about prioritizing light as a basic principle of decoration and creation of environments, a technique that is advancing with leaps and bounds has been implemented in various areas such as construction, as in design but where it has specialized the most and has gained the most recognition is architectural design and interior design.
The natural light is the one that is most taken into account, allows a greater amount of waves to reflect the colors <and with artificial lighting, You can achieve almost the same results in clarity and color as with daylight.
One of the greatest advantages of artificial lighting is that light can complement the spatiality, perception and visual reading of an environment determined, allows us to highlight the elements or allows us to focus attention on a specific space, using textures, colors and playing with volumetry capable of transmitting sensations to any visitor, creating inspiring and functional environments.
In order to make this happen, we must have the following premises in mind: energy saving, color and intensity of light, the choice of the right luminaire , control of lighting and automation of systems.
But also the technical aspects such as lighting technology, the importance of choosing the type of objects that is best suited to lighting, the right distribution of the lamps or light sources, the materials that are used and with which they are related, as well as the type of objects that will absorb or reflect the lighting.
The ability of a light source at the moment to reproduce colors is known as the Chromatic Reproduction Index (IRC). Light continues to incandescent lamps or light illumination that have an IRC equivalent to 100, while discontinuous lighting to light produced by discharge lamps. This index allows to obtain a vision about the spectral distribution of light and colors in a room.
LUXES: Some tips to get the most out of your space
The LED allows us to use a lamp with an IRC that varies from 85 to 100, to give a bright and luminous environment to the room or if you are looking for a dimmer environment and quiet, you can use a light source that goes from 50 to 70 IRC.
The main advantage of LED is the energy saving, its durability (reaching more than 50,000h) contain more power in a smaller size they reduce the emission of heat and you can find lighting in almost any color.
and as a last step to highlight the tonal quality, the combinations of light colors. Use warm colors to illuminate surfaces where there is a lot of red, sepia, amber and yellow; and cool colors when surfaces of blue or green shades are illuminated.
