The Lumen Life – Reexamining the Relationship Between People and Lighting


New Leonardos art

Light is a powerful force that often seems to fall into the background of our day-to-day lives. It tells us when to wake and when to sleep. It creates atmosphere and mood. It gives focus and function. It entertains and envelops. So why is control of lighting normally limited to on and off? As both the LED lighting and the connect home industries continue to see exponential growth, we find it increasingly important to examine how people interact with light, how light interacts with them, and what can be done to help people think about an ordinary item in an extraordinary way.
