Adequate lighting design allows to enhance the volumes and recesses of the surfaces, create suggestive atmospheres and give rhythm to walls and facades through the alternation of light and shadow. If you are looking for surprising and original lighting effects, linear profiles are ideal for creating environments where light design is the protagonist.
Linear lighting will help you create fascinating contexts in which cuts of light cross and delimit the space, whether inside or outside.
The light profiles allow the lighting to overcome the obstacles that in the past bound it to certain installation techniques by bringing light anywhere.
To be used to delineate rooms, to bring light into corridors, to create special atmospheres with soft light coming from ceilings and handrails, or to allow the identification of stairs, steps, mezzanines with walkable profiles: lighting profiles can create real lighting installations.
Enhance rooms with the linear lighting profile
Linear lighting profiles for LED modules are the most innovative technique for enhancing rooms with light due to their sustainability and durability.
The led bars can be housed inside profiles made of different materials. The most suitable is certainly the metal: the aluminium profiles allow an adequate heat dispersion, preventing overheating. In any case, there are very versatile solutions and types of lighting profiles available on the market that can be adapted to any type of space and meet every need.
For visual and practical features, therefore, the metal linear lighting profiles are ideal for modern environments in which essentiality and minimalism are the masters.
If you want to create a dynamic lighting atmosphere, you can opt for linear lighting profiles with an RGB system that will create a light with different shades and a pleasant climax. RGB LEDs in fact, mixing the different intensities of Red, Green and Blue colours will allow immersive light effects in environments, whether they are linear indoor or outdoor lighting.
The use of the linear profile for outdoor use has also become widespread. It is not uncommon to come across real lighting installations while walking around cities, here linear lighting is often used to enhance buildings by giving them new life through non-invasive interventions.
Where to install lighting profiles
Lighting with linear lighting effects helps to give personality to the space and the range of design linear lighting profiles is really wide: you can choose between corner profiles, recessed and semi-recessed profiles, wall, ceiling and floor profiles.
Recessed profiles are an interesting solution for non-invasive interventions and are virtually invisible when not illuminated. Particularly effective are the plaster profiles, where the material allows total camouflage inside the plasterboard.
For modern and particularly striking effects, in which light integrates with surfaces, semi-recessed linear lighting profiles are increasingly in demand.
A widespread field of application for LED profiles is furniture and drawer lighting which, in an extremely functional way, allows us to immediately find what we are looking for.
The angular and customizable LED profiles will be ideal to illuminate not only the interior but also the exterior of the furniture and give a decorative and practical touch to the furniture.
Also very original are wall lighting profiles, useful for chasing the handrails of large staircases or the perimeter of a room with a light beam and for lighting in two directions at the same time.
The floor profiles, then, are of great aesthetic impact: walkable, they guarantee enchanting results evoking a suspension effect in the illuminated objects.
In addition, the step profiles can be inserted horizontally or vertically on the stairs, both inside and outside and are a very practical gimmick, as they guarantee excellent visibility - especially at night.
Diffused light and accent light: the profiles in the lighting design
Lighting the environment around us, following a careful design, allows extremely effective and functional results, as well as representing a stylistically pleasing system.
It is important to know where to place lighting points within a space and what type of lighting best suits each room. There are three basic types of lighting, each with a different function: ambient, accent and work lighting. Light profiles can be an excellent solution if the first two of these approaches are adopted.
For ambient lighting, artificial light and natural light are generally combined: if you are designing work or contract environments, it is essential to know that the light must comply with standard guidelines designed to illuminate efficiently.
In this case, the linear ceiling lighting profiles, running along the upper space, allow direct light to be diffused throughout the room.
The use of modular led profiles can also allow you to reach every corner of the environment, even the most hidden.
General lighting acts as a backdrop for the entire room and must communicate harmoniously with accent lighting.
The purpose of the latter type of lighting is to highlight specific elements of the space, be they objects or architectural elements.
For this purpose, linear lighting profiles for spotlights are the recommended choice. They allow the direction and, if fitted with dimmers, the intensity of the accent light beam to be adjusted.
This type of lighting is often used in museum spaces, in which it is necessary to intervene by combining minimalism with total functionality.
A certain awareness in lighting design not only ensures visual comfort, but also ensures that an environment is complete with every detail. Light thus becomes a real expressive medium through which to communicate space.
Cuts of light that pass through space
Lighting bars and strips are discreetly designed solutions that furnish and illuminate at the same time. They are used in the contract world and in the residential sector mainly to light common areas, i. e. ceiling, false ceiling and skirting boards. Mounting profiles for lighting or backlighting the false ceiling or skirting board is a valid alternative to classic lighting technology. While paying attention to the details of the strategic lighting points in the rooms, it is also appropriate to adapt the diffused lighting, exploiting the indirect light emitted by the light strips and reflected on the ceiling in order to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and efficient result at the same time.
The use of ceiling and false ceiling lighting profiles is very effective from the point of view of visual comfort and will make the spaces pleasantly habitable.
At the same time, the dimming of the light intensity will allow the management of mood lighting, the dimmable lighting profiles will help us to adjust the general lighting level of the room at will by switching from a soft general light for an intimate and relaxed atmosphere to a more intense one for the operating spaces.
In general, the possibility that the light profiles can be installed so flexibly allows the creation of light beams that, like graphic signs, design the space and give an original character to the final overall result.
Lights that run from the ground through the floors, up through the walls until they light up and enhance the ceiling guarantee the success of the project of a modern, convivial and certainly original design.
