Light is an essential key to successful development of an art object in itself: natural or artificial light which lighting and how?

To value a work of art and the staging in their apartment or house, there are some rules to follow, discussed in the article Showcasing works of art at home, how? But one particular point remains fundamental, that of lighting. Indeed, beyond the general decor or harmony to succeed, for one or more objects of art provide the fascination and emotion they aroused when they first discovered, they should be offered a ambient light quality.

The importance of light to beautify the artwork

The exhibition design is now a separate discipline in the world of art presentations, temporary or permanent. The museum lighting is a central element, basically seen as a means of expression, an element of visual ergonomics but must fully preserve the work of its potential for harm. Both artistic, conceptual and practical, quality first good lighting is its ability to establish a clear link between a work and looking (and universe).

Daylight or artificial light?

For all works that are not specifically designed to be exposed to attack natural light and heat radiation which may be associated with harmful agents are often causes of deterioration. Thus, exposure to direct sunlight is almost always impossible, and even more so behind glass. It is the same with old-generation lighting, powerful and close to the work. Few art objects support a brightness greater than 50 lux. And a table to win often be presented in a specially lit for the purpose of the showcase.If the habitat does not provide special facilities to receive great value and works deemed fragile, it may need to consider booking a room partially or totally obscure and install a specific artificial lighting at work.

For which the project of building a new home or to remodel an apartment, it is important to tell the architect desire to exhibit works of art. This will create habitat structure and space in relation to light. A light used with intelligence is the prerogative of quality architecture and values ​​each object. Of intelligent control systems combined with appropriate lighting can be installed for the brightness and color temperatures correspond to the needs of the places and works.

Without proper lighting, the work is unattractive

A statue or a painting in perspective of a dimly lit corridor evokes no emotion; a sculpture overexposed to light or an array of shiny reflections, as well. Said accent lighting without UV and IR radiation, is essential for small objects or sculpture: the smallest details are visible and create relief by shadows fascination warranty. To this end, the LED projectors and fiber optic systems create a three dimensional modeling, guiding the flow of the exhibits without disrupting the overall picture and without emitting harmful thermal radiation.

For clusters of small works (paintings on a wall, for example), lighting by small LED spotlights high quality products on a system of continuous rail, allows individual lighting exhibits. In both cases, the staging is gaining use in a general atmosphere so that neutral or dark accent lighting “turns” focal point in each work required. The art takes up space! For objects larger, large contemporary paintings, for example, the LED technology to provide a soft light that blurs the exogenous contrast to the work.

Fiber optic and LED light, art for art

The technique of optical fiber has many advantages in terms of light sensitive, with a perfect guide? Luminous ux. A generator provides not only the lighting or exhibits, but also that of surrounding buildings to highlight the flexible bundles of glass fibers can guide light in all directions and focus using lenses special. An excellent solution to magnify quality architecture and works.

Highly innovative LED products have great assets. the only source that provides, without filters or additional protective devices, free light IR and UV radiation. Even close to the object, the lighting is less harmful than conventional systems without the risk of discoloration and deterioration of sensitive works. By intelligent control systems this technology offers the possibility of using light in the art and as art. Erasing the unsightly, sublimating beauty and detail, smoothing out surfaces, LED products can create an atmosphere that envelops the entire look and awakens all the senses.

Important: in the absence of occupant at home or even looking, works of art deserve to be “immersed” in the twilight or darkness.
