Never thought I would talk of light and Oprah Winfrey in the same breath

by | Mar 25, 2021

Our Language about light proves the emotion we feel about it, the way we perceive it as humans. We “wash” a wall with light, we create “scallops” …it is “dappled”, “shimmering”, “glistening” , light creates an emotional response deep within us. Life is often described as a place between light and dark,

“You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.”   Oprah Winfrey.

What I will share is the way to manipulate & predict the lit environment, then you can design with confidence how space will feel, how people will move and react. A far more powerful and rewarding design that goes beyond lux levels, lumens and wattage.
