Horizontal and Vertical Illuminance (for reading): While enough light must
be provided for reading, the ambient light level can be very low. A softly lit
area with a low light level will result in a more restful space.
Target Horizontal Illuminance ( 10%): 100-200 lux (10-20 fc)
Indoor rest areas require a soft ambient light that prevents direct or reflected glare. A
decorative, pendant visually separates this area from a larger space. Dimmable lighting
will provide a wide range of lighting levels for various activities.
