Design verlichting techniques

The presence of light is poorly noticed only when there is a perceived lack of it that is a dim atmosphere or shadow or an excess of glare. The use of light is called lighting; it is not only the way of delivering the lighting system, but also the equipment places the light to give a color and intensity.

The following are the various technique used in design verlichting and the combination or layering of the light in space to create different effect within the lighting composition


  • Task lighting: this provides enough illumination level for the users to do visual tasks. The lighting should be the fashion in a way to provide sufficient light level for the users when performing at the desired degree of speed, accuracy, and safety. There must be accounting for all light loss factors that cause depletion in the light level. Tasking lighting is part of ambient illumination layer. An ambient lighting is also called general lighting, which is given by ceiling-mounted lighting equipment and give the first light which is sufficient enough for the job orientation.


  1. Accent light: this is used to highlight key objects, displays, artworks, and outstanding architectural features, this makes the area brighter than the natural surroundings. The eye is always attracted to the point of brightness in the field of view; the focal location can be generated. When an object is an accented format, the object will be highlighted only and to avoid lighting spill on the environment, which helps to reduce the contrast needed. Framing is the type of accent design verlichting, which involves the surface mounted framing projector with a moveable shutter, which ensures precise focus. For instance, a wall that has a painting on it. The result is exceedingly dramatic; the art becomes much lighter, and the surrounding becomes dark, which gives a high contrast and apparent interest.
  2. Downlighting: this allows the placement of the light on the objects or the surface directly below the lighting fixtures. Downlighting is used in making a space looks smaller and closer. Downlight does not need an aligned arrangement, but it just needs proper organization, and it should be pleasing to the eye.
  3. Uplighting: this is the placement of an object directly above the light fixtures which aims in an upward alignment. The effect produced by this technique can either be desirable or undesirable by it is very usual. Uplighting with a candlestick can create the intimacy in a restaurant. This method can be used to showcase architectural surfaces.
