Four Dimensions of Active Light for Art and Culture
A flexible lighting system is sensitive to context, adapting to suit different architectural situations and offering exactly the right light to maximize the appreciation of every artwork.
In museums, Active Light focuses on visual comfort and preserving sensitive materials while simultaneously taking all conservational and visual aspects in to account.
This creates a unique experience, emphasizing the appreciation of art and architecture, as well as the importance of a precise and dynamic lighting system.
A certain quantity of light is required to showcase artwork in the best possible way. For conservation reasons, conventional lighting systems in museums are limited to delivering lighting levels of between 50 and 200 lux for conservation reasons. Now due to the latest LED technology even sensitive objects such as works on paper can benefit from our optimal illumination – without the damaging effects of UV, IR and heat radiation.
The direction of light determines spatial depth, plasticity, recognition and perception. Glare can have a direct impact on wellbeing and quality of the visitor experience, which is why the precise positioning and anti-glare characteristics are key elements In the most sophisticated museum lighting.
The careful adjustment of the light colour to suit the material and the origins of the artwork guarantee a harmonious balance and maximum enjoyment through stunning perceptual experiences. Innovative technology like tunableWhite offers a dynamic solution to these varied requirements.
Intelligent lighting control systems permit the intensity and colour temperature of natural and artificial light to be controlled throughout the day, ensuring a constant high-quality lighting experience - regardless of the external light conditions.
