The core idea of SEEDDESIGN is to make each space cozy, comfortable and relaxing. We care more about whether lamps fit for households rather than lightness. Right habit of using lamps could be referred to characteristics of sunlight.
● Sunlight is weaker and with lower color temperature (luminance CCT around 2500-3000K) during dawn and sunset. It is when human body just being awake or ready to rest. Thus there is no need to light up entire space but using desk, floor or wall lamps to soothe our body instead.
● Noon has the strongest sunlight and higher color temperature ( luminance CCT around 5000-6000K). We are in a spiritual and efficient working condition. That’s why people equip white lamps in schools and offices to keep energetic. Hence, two points should be taken into account for a homy space:
- How many lamps to decorate within individual space?
- Use the light source according to daily activities and purposes.
▶︎ Reading: Except spheres of either books or desk, it is basically unnecessary to use light for other parts. Desk or floor lamps would be good in living room, while wall or desk lamps are suitable for bed. Some people would choose spotlights or pendants in study. All we have to follow is “only illuminating places needed”.
▶︎ Dining area: Either pendants or spotlights are able to make dishes better looks. It is recommended that the distance between pendants and tables is around 60-90 cm from bottom of lampshade. Far distance will weaken the light and cause problems of glare.
