COMMISSIONING

Why should you hire an independent lighting designer?

Our task is to bridge the gap between the aesthetic and technical aspects of lighting to create a lighting solution that integrates as well with the architecture as it does with engineering services.
Since we are not subject to a brand we can provide the best possible technical solution in the client's budget. As in another profession the project has a cost but it can be recovered through the lifespan costs of the building.
Aesthetic. Use light as building material that generates shapes and notions of space.

Energy savings.
 If you have a well planned lighting installation you can have a significant amounts of energy saved.

Increases sales.
Light can attract customers focus and highlight the products and can be a brand tool for the label. Which eventually can have a positive effect on your sales.

Reduced maintenance. Optimized solutions.

Improving productivity. The right light for the right task. By reducing stress and increasing visual comfort. In the past years there are plenty of world wide research performed about the effect of light on stress, and circadian cycles that control alertness and rest.

Independence. We offer impartial advice.
