About Ambient Luminaires
Ambient vs. Other Types of Lighting
There are four main types of interior lighting: task lighting, accent lighting, decorative lighting and ambient lighting.
Task Lighting provides concentrated light to maximize visibility for reading, writing, or assembling. A table lamp that makes reading easier is task lighting.
Like task lighting, accent lighting is concentrated lighting but with a different intent. Accent lighting is designed and installed to draw attention to a focal point such as a PAR Lamp that accentuates a piece of artwork on a wall.
Decorative lighting is meant contribute to the style and atmosphere within a space. The primary function of chandeliers and wall sconces, for example, is to provide decoration rather than to emit light.
Unlike the aforementioned lighting categories, ambient lighting has a broader objective. Lighting designers use ambient lighting to support general visibility and orientation, and to make a room’s lighting as natural and even as possible. Ambient light does not produce harsh glare, and is considered natural light. The goal of ambient light is to be fully present, but not dramatic or overtly noticeable.
