Humans love light. From Paleolithic campfires to today’s smart LEDs, the story of our civilization is – quite literally – illuminated. So it is no wonder that we have developed a finely tuned “sense of sight” that is much more than the ability to see. It is part of the same common sense that we use when we understand ourselves and the world around us.
The development of lighting design and, in a broader sense, a philosophy of light, is especially relevant in the regions of the globe where the winters are long and dark. Nordic Light is perhaps the foremost example of this: a comprehensive approach to light, human activity, architecture, interior design and quality of life.
In ‘See the light’ you will learn how such a new, humanistic view of lighting technology can inspire solutions that incorporate the use of shadows, transparency, reflections, glare and color, among many other lighting dimensions.
