“natural” artificial light

October 25, 2012

Natural light is integrated by an accurate and efficient indirect lighting system that involves a sequence of LED bars, developed by COEMAR, recessed into the floor. The light from this source is reflected off the internal walls fitted with aluminum panels. Each bar combines light from three different LED sources (natural white 4000°K, cool white 6000°K, and amber), dynamically supplementing and emulating the natural light spectrum that penetrates the building envelope from outdoors. This design focuses on the use of complementary artificial light to shape architecture and to achieve fluidity in the changing perception of space. The interaction between light and materials, the changes in light and darkness, and the variants in light temperature and color are aimed to create a “people-friendly” environment. In order to achieve this, the lighting system is flexible and supplements exterior lighting conditions that penetrate the building envelope. The climate of the Veneto Region is characterized by hot and humid summers and misty winters, therefore indoor lighting is designed to provide warm, mutable artificial light on foggy winter days and  fresh, cool artificial light when the days are hot outdoors.

La luce naturale è integrata da un sistema di luce artificiale variabile per quantità (intensità luminosa) e qualità (temperatura di colore). Il sistema è costituito da una sequenza di barre led, sviluppate da COEMAR, incassate a pavimento che diffondono sulle superfici verticali in alluminio una luce miscelata di tre led selezionati a 4000°K, 6000°K e ambra. Le miscele, controllate da un sistema DMX, seguono spettralmente la luce naturale esterna e rendono anche possibili anche azioni correttive della temperatura di colore interna nei giorni di nebbia o neve.
