Lighting design has always been about the strategic and aesthetic placement of light sources. As Robert Soler explains in this short video, biological elements are very important as well, particularly the placement of lights relative to the “horizon plane”, which determine whether light is coming from above or below one’s normal horizontal gaze.
ROBERT SOLER is vice president of research at BIOS Lighting. Prior to his work with BIOS, his most prominent work was with Kennedy Space Center, where he helped design and build the first LED light for use on the International Space Station (ISS) and collaborated with scientists to use LED light for photobiological purposes in space.
Fascinating. Would love to here a 45 min talk about this topic.
