Ceiling lamps and ceiling lights – Creating atmosphere or placing accents
Ceiling lights are – as the name suggests – mounted to the ceiling and do not protrude into the room, as pendant lights do. This is an advantage when it comes to space and is quite important in rooms with a low ceiling. They are also less prominent than pendant lamps and adapt much easier to the architecture of the room. This does not account for every ceiling light: manufacturers like Ingo Maurer, Artemide, or Catellani&Smith created ceiling lamps that are true eye catchers.
Ceiling lights can be used to create atmosphere within a room, by applying indirect or diffuse light. It is also possible to illuminate separate areas and set accents, which works best with direct lighting. To achieve this means of illumination, one can use downlights or spots. The latter have the advantage of emitting a focused ray of light and they are often flexible and can be adjusted freely.
The decorative designer ceiling lights are more and more often equipped with modern LEDs, which do no longer send cold and glaring light, but emit pleasant, warm and above all economic light. From elaborate crystal chandeliers by Kolarz or Swarovski to contemporary and minimalist design: there are ceiling lamps for every taste and for every room, whether it is a living room, kitchen, hallway, kid’s room or bedroom. Lighting Deluxe offers an extraordinary luminaire selection: from classic design ceiling lights, to minimalist ceiling lamps, and more unusual lights.
Technical Ceiling Lights – Efficiency at work
This lamp type follows the credo "form follows function" and can be found mainly in the office or at the home desk. But even in living areas, for example in the hallway or in the stairwell, a reliable and powerful illumination is essential. With technical lighting the innovative LED technology has prevailed largely. Especially in the professional field, where permanent lighting is required, LEDs convince with their energy efficiency and long durability.
Spotlights are particularly favorable in the office because they illuminate the working space with directed light; most can rotate freely and can be adjusted to any needs. Technical lights are not limited to their functionality. Well-known manufacturers such as Artemide with the Artemide Architectural series, Nimbus or Basis are ingenious at combining aesthetics and effectiveness. LightingDeluxe offers these and many other manufacturers: a fine selection of modern ceiling lights, classic and innovative ceiling lamps, and many other inspirations can be found in the Lighting Journal.
