The luminaire combines utility with aesthetics. Lighting concept or decorative object in its own right, it becomes a stage director inside and outside the house. The atmospheres, it is he who creates them.
Discreet and efficient
“The more it is hidden, the better !” When indirect lighting is very discreet, it becomes a lighting concept. Enlightenment, that is its one and only goal. Without suspension, floor lamp or other table lamp. The LEDs are practically invisible, embedded in the ceilings, along the cornices, in the baseboards. Outside, the same search for concealment in and around the swimming pool, at the foot of the trees, along an alley…
But if inside we are going to play with color temperatures (cold white for the kitchen, bathroom and office, and warm white for comfort rooms such as the living room or bedroom). For the pool water, we will even go so far as to opt for a change of colors.
In terms of lighting, Scandinavia imposes its minimalist lines and the quality of its products. The Danish Louis Poulsen and Nordlux make up the winning duo from Northern Europe. Neutral tones predominate, black and white sometimes appearing in the color palette.
For a resolutely decorative spirit, it will be necessary to turn to Italian brands.
The visible bulb
It becomes the centerpiece of the lighting and a decorative element in its own right. Oversize or imitating the old models with filaments, the bulb is exposed, held by cables with which we can play to create, for example, clusters. One of its strengths, its mobility which makes it sensitive to the slightest breath of air.
