Lights, Design & Action


Light not only illouminates but define one’s path. It can change mood, hide or highlight an object, kill or liven up a space. Light never stands in isolation, it can only be seen through its impact on the object it falls on.

Today lighting up a space itself is a major task as nowaday light defines one’s style and mood. There is nothing better than natural light; one should go for its maximum use. But, because of its dynamic nature one have to go for artificial lighting which can be used in very playful manner.

Unless one sees and experiences nature and application of light in actual space, it is difficult to deal with it. 
For any built mass, both indoor and outdoor spaces get affected by natural as well as artificial light. It is important to play in combination of natural and artificial light. It determines functionality of both space and style and decor of environment it creates. In homes, a thoughtful selection of lighting schemes enhances the aesthetics of interiors as well as garden spaces.
