- Obtaining lighting requirement
- Define the goals
- Create lighting scenario
- Concept innovation
- Lighting design simulation
- Luminaries selection
As a fact lighting design is not just calculation of lux level , it is dramatically linked to interior design and architectural design. The main challenge in lighting design is how to emphasize the texture, shadow, highlight, glow, and create the accent of interior lighting to pop-up displayed products as well as interior design.
All these are the terms that HSI lighting is not just a lighting supply company , our lighting design team use regularly to explain our lighting design concepts. Without these, it would be impossible to perceive the light effect in architectural.
In retail space emphasizing on the products which is going to present at the show room is as important as innovative interior design concept. The type of products itself could effect on lighting scenarios in terms of selecting the type of light fixture, color temperature control system,… .
Information required for lighting design:
• The type of the space and how is used
• Spatial dimensions
• Complete design documentation
• AutoCAD drawings
• Photographic and drawn documentation (layout and height of the furniture,
how the space is equipped)
• Information about the type and color of all surfaces
The type of space and its use are the basic criteria upon which we determine technical and lighting parameters such as minimum illumination levels, lighting uniformity, and color rendering.
To be able to design a suitable lighting solution that fulfills all requirements, we require comprehensive information about the space including the final design documentation.
When determining the lighting we need to consider not only the type of space and work-space specifications, but also the types and finishes, textures and material of surfaces even the product which going to be displayed.
The color of walls, ceilings and furniture, as well as their position with the space, have a direct influence on how users will perceive the lighting intensity. For that reason customers need to provide us, along with full design documentation, also detailed drawings and photographs of the space.
The last stage of lighting design is selecting appropriate Luminaires includes a comprehensive consultation and light calculation. The choice of luminaire is
based on various lighting technical requirements which designer proposes.
Every space requires different illumination and therefore different luminaires. It is important to select luminaires that provide appropriate color rendition and glare levels. Design team should focus on other technical parameters and details, such as the optical system, light distribution, efficacy and the mounting type in order to select the best Luminaries. We will help you choose the most appropriate design and light source for your needs.
