Lighting environment

Proper lighting is of vital importance for our life environment. The lighting sets limits for our actions both in work and at home.

Contrasts, daylight, illumination levels and glare are some quantities which are determining factors for good visibility. Other parameters as colorations, shadings and position of windows are perhaps more interesting for our experience of the environment but are also important for our general comfort and well-being.

Below we have listed different quantities which we can examine in the lighting environment.

  • Comfort light
  • Illumination level
  • Glare
  • Daylight
  • Lamp fittings
  • Light sources
  • Illumination in the working environment
  • Illumination at home
  • Illumination in school buildings
  • Illumination in traffic environment
