Illumination is an inseparable part of everyday life. Lighting can help to create a certain mood, special space feeling, emphasize or hide some interior or exterior details. Scientists have proven that a proper lighting can help cure psychological diseases. We ourselves can see that the lighting is important to our health when carrying our day-to-day activities. Workspace lighting is strictly regulated by law, so employers have to make sure that each work and common space is illuminated properly. The nature of an activity is usually the main determinant in deciding what intensity of lighting is needed. Educational premises will probably be illuminated differently than, for example, the industrial ones. Dwelling house lighting is not regulated by law, so that is left for an individual to responsibly decide. That is why when designing a lighting in one‘s home, it is suggested to consult with a lighting professional.

Different lamps installed indoors or out have to comply to all safety requirements. Designing a lighting system is a complex process, as it does not only include choosing lamps that match their surroundings. Electrical connection, light source arrangement (depending on natural light sources), location of switches, electrical sockets have to be taken care of in advance.

Lamps are primarily classified as outdoor or indoor. There also are different types of lighting. One lamps may help to concentrate the light flux to an exact object, others will illuminate their surroundings indirectly. If some details are wanted to be emphasized inside or out, certain architectural solutions are wanted to be seen better, then accented lighting is the best choice. However, lighting itself may be decorative – that is, be used as an ornamental detail of interior or exterior. For example, to accent house silhouette, architectural solutions of ceiling or walls, or, for example, emphasize the furniture.
That said, several types of lamps can be used to make any lighting ideas come true. Also, combinations of different lamps. After deciding on what function is required and evaluating the environment, it is important to know what types of lamps there are. Not only lighting design depends on it, but also mounting, attaching, installation. Outdoor lamps may be:
• Attached to the ceiling;
• Hanging lamps;
• Wall lamps;
• Floor lamps;
• Desk lamps.
When designing an indoor lighting, it is important to know that indoor lamps may also be of several types:
• Attached to the ceiling;
• Wall lamps;
• Desk lamps;
• Recessed lamps;
• Built-in lamps.

When designing a lighting in private or public spaces, lighting tendencies are also discussed. In some spaces where the main focus is on functionality and lighting parameters are strictly regulated, technical properties are discussed mode often. When a lighting design is prepared paying a lot of attention to it‘s aesthetic properties, lamp types, the way they match in the environment, then not only technical properties, but also luminaire design and it‘s tendencies are talked over.
The main criteria when choosing a lamp are it‘s function and how it matches the environment. A lot of previously mentioned lamps are fitted together, but some tendencies where certain lamps can be applied in unexpected spaces are often observed. For example, spotlights that have previously only been used in shop windows or theatre stage are now constantly seen in modern interiors or lofts. Accented spotlights are designed according to their model. These lamps are mounted on special tracks. They are easily transformed and their light flux is effortlessly adjusted. LED technology without a doubt was revolutionary in lighting. Various types of LED lamps allow special lighting projects that were previously impossible due to limited technical properties of light sources come to life.
LED technology is also known for the possibility to reduce energy usage and unlimited consumption. Sustainable consumption is one of the newest tendencies in lighting design. Consumers more often emphasize energy saving due to not only personal economic reasons, but also global phenomena that impact our planet. Lighting is an area where a lot of changes have to be made in order to implement sustainable consumption ideas and we are happy to contribute to this.
