WHY WE DESIGN LED STRIP LIGHT?                                                                                                                                                                                                                   


"Light in the space, like the air in life"


Ways of Designing

Light Washing


                                       Nowadays many designers adopt light strips naturally in the process of interior indoor designing. They appear to layer the sense of hierarchicy, enrich the light ambient.


But many owners often ask the designer such problems

"Why do you want to design a light strip?"

Both increase the cost, but also maintenance,

Will there be light pollution? Are they really good looking visually?




In fact most of people do not know

Who the first man makes use of this design technique

and the design purpose




Richard Kelly and Philip Johnson,

the two masters pioneered this concept.

"Light Washing"

That is, with a number of hidden light sources to illuminate the wall evenly and uniformly.



They headed in Miesfandro

in designing the Seagram building with the

concept of "Tower of light"

Made the rough and porous limestone materials

 being a very neatly and elegantly effect.



Since then, "Light Washing" design style have been applied so far

The light strip is hidden inside of ceiling, the wall, or floor for outlining the contours of space

Which had become one of the designers' favorite lighting styles.





In modern simple style design

The strip light make the space more stylish





The strip lightings are not only aesthetically pleasing

But also increasing the auxiliary lighting for room space 

Let the blank space become much more brighter



The additional strip lights interior of the cabinet

play the role of adding the finishing touch



The shelves combined with the strip lights

both functionality and better lighting effect



The strip light under the baffle plate make the small room

look more spacious



Now actually many designers are good at

"light washing" approach

But can't tell what the truth is



Well , let's see the lighting master Richard Kelly's 

 three principles of lighting

1.Focal Glow

2.Ambient Luminescence

3.Sparkling of Brilliants


Above picture was the Four Seasons Restaurant of Seagram Building lighting

designed by Richard Kelly

It was a good interpretation of his three principles of lighting

The washing strip lights highlighted the roughened decorative panels

The combination of down lighters and ceilings formed the mainly downward lighting

and made up the shinning spots through the reflection of the pool. 


Focal Glow 

Focus Glow means , as the needed major lighting position must be bright, such as

on sales products, the needed illumination the staircase between steps, the hotel lobby canopy......  



The light strip under the handrail of the staircase

Solved the lighting problems of the staircases



Ambient Luminescence

The Ambient luminescence like the shines of the open country fields, the hint rays in the snow morning, the evening lake against the sunset, even the ambient doesn't flow directly,  

but the rays of light change, so the ambient rays develop a kind of "shadowless lighting"







Sparkling of Brilliants

The sparking of brilliants seem the waves of the stream, the sunshine pass through the window caves, a ray of beams shines into the room, the candles of banquet hall, the glass crystal lamp's light, they would stimulate human's nerves, dynamical , varied and graceful.




Most of designers often used the strip lights because they used to raise the indirect lighting,

eliminate the shadows, glares, and enrich the hierachy of room

No matter how the modern design change, then quasi from master Kelly's application of lighting principles.
