We are an independent engineering office for lighting design with national as well as international projects.
The essence of our approach is the linking of visual perception phenomena, physiological, psychological reactions of humans to the effects of light, architectural and design aspects, as well as technical guidelines in the design process.
Our goal is to create the conditions for human well-being while fulfilling standardised quality criteria. Our planning goal is not the amount of light produced, but the spatial effect. The reflected light modulated by the material contains the information for our image of the environment.
Ultimately, lighting design leads to the planning of perception conditions. The aim is to record the meanings of a space according to its function, use and design, and to bring them into a hierarchy. The lighting design then only has to pick up on this hierarchy of meaning and support it, or at least not work against it. This is where the light density comes into play. Areas with high light density inevitably settle at the top of the hierarchy of importance. Perception planning is thus oriented towards a light density hierarchy that is subject to functional and design factors.
