Lighting is the most effective creator of ambience in an interior space. It has also become an integral part of interior design, enriching the mood and influencing our visual and psychological experience - even our working efficiency. Moreover, lighting can define zones and spaces and change our perception of them. Appropriate lighting design also creates and personalizes the sense of a space. With introductory essays by two lighting professionals on the properties and effects of light and shadow the contents of this book explore lighting, design and concept, lighting and space, lighting and decoration, lighting and taste and the application of energy-efficient lamps and LEDs in interiors. This volume will be an inspirational reference for interior designers and other readers alike.
