Art and culture

One of the sectors in which the culture of light requires the greatest commitment is museum lighting, and more generally lighting places used to display art: art galleries, exhibition buildings, churches, historic buildings.

The main aim of museum lighting is to promote enjoyment of the work of art while at the same time protecting it from the damage that light radiation can cause to more sensitive materials. Safeguarding of the work is pursued in compliance with international standards and recommendations which set out exposure times, the reduction or elimination of harmful radiation: ultraviolet and infrared.

Enjoyment of the work of art calls for expert lighting, understanding and correctly interpreting the relationship between the work and light. In museum lighting particular attention is paid to respecting the colour quality of the work by selecting top quality lamps and the right balance in the light emission spectrum.

The most widely used luminaires are indoor spotlights, which fitted on electric tracks allow lighting setups which are easily modified without the need for major technical work. Another solution very often used is indoor recessed luminaires for creating the best general light and accent lighting, hiding the body of the luminaire and allowing just the light to come out of the ceiling.
