If you want a cleaner ceiling, you can choose a recessed solution. Worth noting is that you should move the fixtures further out towards the walls to get more light on the walls. Also in this solution it is important to supplement with a well dimmed picture lighting.
Even with a recessed solution, lighting control is a good pedagogical tool, as you can control the different luminaire rows separately and create different lighting scenarios for different teaching activities. As in all work premises, the luminaires should be well protected to prevent glare, providing comfortable working light.
By providing lighting with control, you can adapt energy consumption and the classroom becomes more energy efficient and sustainable. The standard SS-EN 15193-1:2017 provides common guidelines for calculating energy consumption in a uniform manner.
Lighting control for classrooms with recessed luminaires
For classrooms with recessed luminaires, we recommend Organic Response. It is an intelligent lighting control system that distributes information between sensors without physical interconnection. Each luminaire is equipped with a sensor that connects occupancy detection. This, combined with wireless/battery-free pushbuttons, creates a true plug-n-play system for the smart classrooms of the future.Read more about lighting control in classrooms
