Transcript

  • 1. LIGHTING DESIGN Instructor: Deborah Ogden
  • 2. DO YOU HAVE ANY ROOMS WITH A SINGLE LIGHT SOURCE?
  • 3.
    • Rooms with a single source of light: unflattering!
    • Single source lighting is harsh and contrast-y
  • 4. LAYERED LIGHTING IS SOFTER, MORE NATURAL, AND MORE PLEASING
  • 5.
    • Focus is on art and floral arrangement
    • Light sources are concealed
    • Texture of wood and wall highlighted
    • Room appears inviting
  • 6. CREATING A DRAMATIC FOCAL POINT IS ONE FUNCTION OF LIGHTING
  • 7.
    • What is highlighted in this room?
    • The table top is noticed first
    • Then the plant in background, and then area near window
  • 8. LIGHTING CAN HELP CREATE AN ILLUSION
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11.
    • (cove lighting used on previous slide)
  • 12.
    • These pools of light create drama and interest by highlighting the stone floor
    • They also subtly direct the viewer to the next room
  • 13.
    • Accent lights draw attention to art or architecture
  • 14.
    • Notice the spot shining above the fireplace?
    • On the tree?
    • On the statue on the far wall?
    • Lamp on the end table?
  • 15.
    • Spots on stone, beams, hearth, dining table
    • Highlight texture and shadow with wall-washers
  • 16.
    • Up-lights on glass table–
    • with glass art objects
  • 17. Architecture highlighted: Lighting in shelf area, spot over fireplace, down-lights on sofa tables
  • 18.
    • Lighting is ideal for creating ceiling interest
    • Plant shadows are one way to bring in some lighting “texture”
    • Picture light, lamps, up-light in plant, spot on round table
  • 19. Now that is a bedroom ceiling! This could be built into any high-ceilinged room…Note the cove lighting
  • 20.
    • A restaurant ceiling with cove lighting and gold leaf
    • See the ceiling spots?
    • Table lamps?
    • Torchiere?
  • 21. Avoid the “black mirror” effect by placing lighting on objects outside a glass wall or door
  • 22.  
  • 23. THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES OF LIGHTING: TASK LIGHTING AMBIENT LIGHTING ACCENT LIGHTING
  • 24.
    • Task lighting is focused and specific lighting
    • Task lighting is not intended to light an entire room
  • 25. Bedside task light can be wall or table lamps. Measure height of the seated user’s eye level, and place opaque shades just above shoulder, or place the center of a translucent shade at their eye level.
  • 26. A single center-mounted ceiling light is often not a good task light. In this case, the user’s body blocks the light from shining on the task area.
  • 27. Track lighting and down-lights also need to be placed where they will shine on the task and not on those performing the task.
  • 28. Under-cabinet lighting mounted at the front of the cabinet bounces light off the backsplash and onto the countertop—the task area
  • 29. Lighting a counter and backsplash made from glossy material takes extra care--to avoid glare and veiling reflections: mount adjustable recessed luminaires to give cross-illumination
  • 30. Another example of a single source of light giving harsh shadows and no “fill” light
  • 31. Linear task lights mounted near the back of the upper cabinet create a distracting glare for a seated diner—mount at front and use a fascia strip
  • 32.
    • Sconces are a good source of task light and “fill” light in a bathroom
