Lighting Design is the scientific study of the body, mind and emotions. Lighting Design is a multifaceted discipline and includes many sub-fields of study such areas as human development, cognitive processes, health and social behavior.
The careful visually designed space - either with strong or soft contrast - can become the support system for body and mind. A well designed space can foster human connection. If you don’t get the lighting right, its not going to work. - Thomas Mnich
