Behind their visual appeal, a key advantage of finishing is that it can strengthen the resistance of the metal against corrosion. However, not every project requires the same finishing technique, and each comes with its own list of pros and cons.

Designing with Lines of Light

Designing with Lines of Light

facebook linkedin twitter · · By ECOLED

Linear lines of light offer a powerful tool to emphasise the architectural lines of a space and enhance visual interest. Whilst their simplicity adds an understated element of depth and avant-garde minimalism to a project, they can also be designed in more artistic ways to offer accent lighting that accentuates key architectural features.

Like all lighting schemes, specification needs to be done at the earliest stages of the design process, so that the lights can be applied to compliment the design of the space as well for practical reasons such as access and maintenance.

Here, we look at linear lighting in application and discuss the key factors to consider during the design process of each.

The 4th Dimension of Architecture

We believe that lighting is the 4th dimension of architecture, yet it is often over-looked, value engineered or left until the last minute of the building or design process. As lighting people, we are bound to be biased but we strongly believe that a space designed by an architect or decorated by an interior designer requires lighting to complement, accentuate and enhance the ambience and bring the architecture to life. Good lighting creates the difference between a project that impresses or underwhelms.
