En-lightened Communication!

The measure of visual satisfaction, well-being, quick comprehension and a sense of ease is dictated by the “Correlated color temperature’ (CCT) and ‘Color rendering index’ (CRI) of the light source which indicate the way the light is perceived in a given space.

Both CCT and CRI play a dynamic role in influencing the psychological and physiological functions of the occupant especially in a workplace. Therefore, when we get called out to suggest light fixtures for office spaces, it's important to apply the appropriate CCT in the working environment as it directly impacts motivation and improves and increases working efficiency and productivity. In addition to artificial light sources, daylight too is extremely helpful in creating a positive work vibe.

The Conclusion
“While it is almost a cliche to say it's just another successful project finished within the concept and budget of the client, it is worth mentioning that every project is unique, the people involved change and a successful project is one where it is important to not only deliver the specified products but leave behind a happy client,” elaborates Mr. Patel.
 
Light Tip
Straight and subtle light sources
 
The workplace needs a mix of direct and indirect lighting. Direct light focuses straight at the work surface, for instance a flexible desk lamp that can be adjusted to adapt to individual needs. Indirect lighting means subtle illumination around the work space to relieve strain on the eyes, which could also be daylight. In the evening, this is usually a ceiling, wall or floor lamp.
