Lighting, innovative design solutions in step with the times
Nowadays environmental responsibility and sustainability are the topics that have the greater impact on the decisions made by companies in the furniture sector. Manufacturers of lighting fixtures are met with a twofold challenge, since in addition to aiming at reducing the environmental impact of each aspect of their operations, it is necessary for them to design new innovative products able to bring down energy consumption. This is the case of lamps with a LED technology light source, or of the last generation solutions that exploit OLED displays. Nonetheless, there is no lack of such cutting-edge solutions oriented to limiting consumption in lamps with traditional light sources - such as halogen lamps or fluorescent, incandescent and so on - either. Design lamps represent a choice in step with the times since these are products designed with increasing innovative materials and technologies. Moreover, numerous brands propose in their catalogs reinterpretations of unique pieces, adjusting them upon current needs. Not only style and aesthetics, but also the environment are positively impacted by design lamps.
Indoor lighting: a solution for every room
For an indoor lighting project to perform well, each environment needs to be divided into specific areas, whether it is a home, an office or a public space. The decision on the lighting typology needs to be based upon the different needs. The possible light effects vary from a diffuse lighting shed on the environment, up to an accent lighting, to be obtained with direct light lamps. Diffused lighting is the result of soft lights located in different points of the room, with a studied combination of wall lamps, indirect light ceiling lamps, floor lamps, often equipped with semi-transparent shades, which spread a soft light. Another very effective solution are profiles for LED linear lighting, that can be useful to underline specific geometries in the room or the furniture. Recessed spotlight, LED bars for furniture and pendant lamps with direct light cast a directional light, ideal to enhance the visibility on the kitchen worktop, on the table, on the bathroom furniture, while table lamps are great when it comes to light up the study or work area. Archiproducts also proposes solutions for the lighting of offices and public places, starting from individual fixtures and versatile track systems, up to sophisticated acoustic lamps, which, in addition to lighting, contribute to the acoustic insulation of the environments. Together with being functional, lighting plays a decorative role, helping to create a cozy and custom-made atmosphere. The light letters give a pop and artistic touch to hallways, kitchens, children's bedrooms and open plan spaces.
From the garden to the landscape, solutions for outdoor lighting
The offer of products for outdoor lighting is wide and varied and allows to create projects of all genres, from balconies up to landscapes. A good outdoor lighting project needs to take into account diverse factors, in the first place those pertaining safety and resistance to the different stresses that an outdoor environment is subjected to. Once this essential condition has been met, all other problems related to functionality and aesthetics can be tackled. Each outdoor space has its own needs, related to size, function and location. Generally speaking, outdoor lamps can be divided into two major categories: fixtures designed to illuminate outdoor living areas, or to enhance facades, walkways, landscapes. As a matter of fact, gardens and terraces can be used as if they where an extension of the indoor environment, by planning an outdoor dining area, an outdoor kitchen a relaxing area and more. The choice, not so differently from that made for the indoor, ranges from pendant lamps to floor lamps, from table to wall lamps, from light garlands and lanterns. Another discourse should be done with regard to lighting projects of a broader scope, aimed both at illuminating the exterior at night and to enhance the architectural and landscape features. The starting point is lighting the entrance of the house, by choosing between wall or ceiling lamps, possibly endowed with a movement sensor to endure greater safety. In order to illuminate and add to the safety of outdoor paths, such as walkways, stairs or ramps, you can use light posts, garden lamps, step markers and recessed spotlights to be placed along low or high walls. Archiproducts section on outdoor lighting also suggests an array of products dedicated to the public areas for projects related to urban decoration, architectural or landscape projects, from street lamps to profiles for outdoor linear lighting and outdoor floodlights.
