Our ideal architectural lighting system should be hidden in the structure, should be functional but energy saving
It should highlight the volumes and the paths, by chromatic and/or graphic light signs
By this lighting style the architectural structure becomes a “virtual lamp”, and the perceived effect of the light overcomes the aesthetic aspect of the lamps, “ideally invisible”
The light must be concentrated and directed toward the main zones, while the passage zones will keep a relatively lower brightness
This approach, beyond saving energy, creates that pleasant and necessary game of contrasts which gives “depth of field” to the vision, exalts the perception of shapes and volumes, lowers the necessary flux
A good lighting design cannot exist without creating a game between lights and shadows


Service light - Base light - Accent light


They are the three working levels for a structural and mimetic light design, able to give value to the aesthetic and functional perception of spaces and volumes
The different balance among the three working levels allows to obtain different volumetric perceptions and functional targets

Service light
has low brightness,
offers the indispensable
minimal visibility for
passing, and/or
graphically marks a
volume or a path
It’s often realized by
illuminating vertical
edges from down, or
projecting light textures
on the floor/ceiling/walls

The base light is brighter,
and it’s often realized by
 lighting wide surfaces,
 vertical or horizontal (walls
 or ceilings), or making
 “virtual lamps” with
recessed fixtures around
columns or edges
previously enriched by
particular covering
 materials
 In certain positions/moments, the
 base light can also become
 colored, in order to play an
 elegant and soft contrast
 with the main neutral lights

The accent light is concentrated on the furnishings and/or on
limited functional areas inside the same volume
 It’s usually made by lamps with suitable optics, installed in suitable
 positions in order to avoid any dazzling
 It can be switched-on alone, for a very cozy and graceful effect, or
in combination with the base light, for a more incisive final result
