When designing a plan for a new building or facility, building owners and facility managers should consider the power of lighting design and its long-term benefits.

Over the years, LED lighting technology has paved the way for new and efficient lighting design techniques, enhancing the way people perceive buildings and interact with them.

Why Quality of Light Matters

Why Quality of Light Matters
At Luminii, we believe that lighting matters. Those are powerful words and can be interpreted in many ways. It isn’t just the application of the lighting that matters, but the LIGHT itself matters. Without light there is no life. Without light, there is no design, no shape, and no dimension. No matter how wonderful an interior design is, if it is not illuminated, it just isn’t visually there. If it is not illuminated properly, it can fall flat. A beautiful landscape is just a dark expanse without light, just as an amazing work of art may as well live in a storage unit without carefully considering the light it's bathed in.
