Vidi is innovative corridor lighting solution with a large proportion of incidental light for a more varied experience and a clearer sense of space.
Vidi ceiling helps orientation in the communication area via a combination of direct light towards the floor and indirect light towards the ceiling. Vidi corner creates vertical incidental light that accentuates the walls and increases orientation without creating a gloomy corridor feeling.
Vidi is supplemented on the opposite wall by Wallwing for additional vertical light and guidance.
Notor recessed LED Opal dropped offers an unbroken line of general light, with Pleiad Wallwasher G3 providing a higher proportion of vertical light on the adjacent wall.
Pleiad Wallwasher G3
Pleiad Wallwasher G3 is the optimum solution for creative lighting environments that focus on a greater proportion of ambient lighting. Powerful and well shielded, the luminaire sends a cascade of light over the wall, all the way up to the ceiling – while still maintaining the energy efficiency.
The corridor consistent a long glass partition with meeting rooms and offices. The lighting in this area must not dazzle those working inside of the rooms, yet still provide an optimal journey through the space.
Since we can only work with the ceiling and the wall opposite, we have opted for a corner-mounted luminaire Vidi that provides attractive incident light in the ceiling and on the wall.
The art on the walls is accentuated with recessed spotlights Easy LED. By focusing on both the ceiling and the walls it brings life to a space which may have been perceived as gloomy and boring.
Consider the standard
As a social space in its own right, increased focus on the ceilings and walls not only facilities communication but also adheres to EN 12461-1.
Combinations and variations
Luminaires placed in the centre of the ceiling create a different effect to those placed close to the wall. A combination creates life and variation, highlighting display areas as pupils pass by.
Reduce the risk of damage
In corridors with a high footfall, ceiling mounted luminaires reduce the risk of damage compared with wall mounted variations. In wider corridors, 3.5 m +, the placement of a wallwasher on the outer edge of the ceiling help avoid a lifeless space.
Think about glare
Transport through the corridor of hospitals is extra sensitive and disorientating and glaring light only heightens this discomfort. Large contrasts between bright and dark areas should be avoided with the glare from the luminaires kept firmly under control.
To minimise discomfort from glare – place the luminaires against the wall.
Cylindrical illuminance for communication
It’s equally important that the light levels are good, in general at least 200 lux, so that the staff can clearly see what is in front of them and the cylindrical illuminance has to be considered to facilitate easy visual communications.
A space with vertical illumination provides both the required levels of light for the visual task whilst safeguarding against glare.
Control via presence
A lighting solution which dims the light to a basic level at night, but rises once presence has been detected, is both an efficient and effective system within a corridor.
Customisable light levels
The corridor has a key function that affects both logistics and perception. Providing a visually stimulating route throughout the building it’s decisive for orientation, circulation and as a means of escape. As a social space in its own right, increased focus on the ceilings and walls not only facilities communication but also adheres to EN12461-1.
