An effective and energy efficient lighting scheme illuminates high reflective surfaces as
well as specific features in an ambient / accent approach. In the figure above,
decorative pendants or surface mounted luminaires light the ceiling. This ambient
system also can be easily integrated with the available daylight in the space. Wall
washers illuminate walls and artwork. Because the walls make up a significant portion
of our field of view, brightness on these surfaces increases the overall perceived
brightness of the space.
