A good lighting design almost has nothing to do with the choice of luminaires but largely revolves on a lighting scenography of the space
Work on a project consists of several design stages:
1. Design concept development and presentation
Work on a project usually starts with an introductory meeting, analysis of plans and detailed discussion of the project. The purpose of the first meeting is to learn as much information about a space as possible, including simulations of furniture, layouts, logistics and functional use of the space and concrete designer and client requirements. The more information is provided the better the lighting system will turn out.
The deliverable of this stage is an album of proposals for lighting scenography, explanations of the functional use and perception of space and proposals on the selection of lighting equipment.
2. Drawings and specifications
The next step following the approval of the lighting concept is the development of plans for the placement of lighting equipment and a detailed specification. The specification includes all the components of the lighting scheme, including fixtures, lamps, transformers and drivers, and also recommendations on control systems. This stage usually takes about 15 workdays from the moment all relevant information for design has been made available.
3. Designer’s supervision and light adjustment.
A good design is only half the story of beautiful lighting. Correct and accurate installation and subsequent aiming of fixtures will help translate the design image into life.
We usually keep in touch with the electrical installation contractor and are willing to answer any question related to the fixtures installation and connection scheme. Site visits during the installation and setting-up of lighting equipment are negotiable separately from the basic contract.
