The art of lighting is about prioritize light as a basic principle of decoration and creation of environments, a technique that is advancing by leaps and bounds already It has been implemented in various areas such as construction, such as design, but where it has specialized more and has acquired greater recognition is in architectural design and interior design.
Natural light is the one that is taken into account the most, it allows to provide a greater amount of waves to reflect colors and with artificial lighting, almost the same results in clarity and color can be achieved as with daylight.
One of the greatest advantages of artificial lighting is that the light can complement the spatiality, perception and visual reading of a given environment,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 environments and functional.
To make this happen, we must keep the following premises in mind, saving energy, color and intensity of light, choosing the right luminaire, lighting control and automation of systems.
But also the technical aspects like lighting technology, the importance of choosing the type of objects that is most suitable for lighting, the appropriate distribution of the lamps or light sources, the materials 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 to instantly reproduce colors is known as Color Rendering Index (CRI). Continuous lightto incandescent lamps or light illumination that have a CRI equivalent to 100, while discontinuous illumination to the light produced by discharge lamps. This index, allows to obtain a vision on the spectral distribution of the 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 a CRI that varies from 85 to 100, to give a bright and luminous environment to the room or if you are looking for a dimmer and quieter environment, you can use a light source that ranges from 50 to 70 CRI.
The main advantage of LEDs is energy saving, their durability (reaching more than 50,000h) they 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 light color combinations. Use warm colorsto illuminate surfaces where there is a lot of red, sepia, amber and yellow; and cool colors when blue or green tonal surfaces are to be illuminated.
