Sharing from Mr Brad Koerner
“Architectural lighting is poised for a dramatic transformation: LED technology now allows us to integrate lighting directly into walls or ceilings, with little energy consumption, heat and maintenance. The fusion of light + material by embedding lighting elements directly into architectural surfaces, opens up fresh new approaches to creating eye-catching spatial experiences. Architects and interior designers have long tried to break free from the constraints of traditional light fixtures, to use light to add a visual richness to architectural surfaces. However, the integration of embedded lights also has its limitations as they are costly to install, limiting broader adoption. There is an opportunity to develop a flexible and customised system that accommodates an enormous range of creative styles, along with innovations to speed up the design, visualisation and fabrication processes. Transitioning from discrete light sources to light as an integral property of interior surfaces will change the way people perceive, occupy and enjoy architectural spaces, particularly in hospitality, retail and public applications.”
