Projection mapping - visual display technology with light!

With the recent SEA GAMES held in Singapore, many have witness the vivid and vibrant display of lighting graphics on the field of Singapore Stadium!

Today we would like to share what we know of the technology. The name of this process is 'projection mapping' or 'video mapping.' It is a form of augmented reality. That is to have our eyes and mind see an image although it doesn't really exist in real form.

This method is often used in our festival of lights, Arts nights, Asian Civilisation museum and even our Singapore National Museum previously. The basic application is have video lights projected to a wall surface. While the video moves, it is often that viewer is able to distinguish the real surface and the video effect.

A highly skilled lighting videographer will be able to go beyond just using the facade of a building as a display screen. They should enable the whole building to come alive through manipulating the projection lights.

(E.g. Viewer is able to see and sense a building jumping out of its' skin and cascading towards themselves. That sub-conscious sense may make a person move themselves to avoid being 'hit' by the building. Such an experience is the real power of projection mapping and should be considered the real success of interactive visual display technology.

As a lighting consultant, we would think that knowing the capability of your hardware and the environment is 2 essential criterias for a successful video display show!

LED Track lights for residential projects

LED track lights is gaining much popularity these days to accentuate a feature wall. Tracklight is commonly also known as a spotlight. Till today, track lights is often using 50w Halogen light bulbs that are not only very hot, but spoils easily.

With the development of LED lightings, it has brought about a hugh change to conventional tracklights. With the LED being small and 80% less hot than a halogen spotlight; many new designs and application can be created.

We are often faced with ugly boring looking cylindrical tracklights that juts out at the ceiling. Whatever designs you have might just be spoilt by incompatible tracklights.

With our experience in lighting, allow us to show you some sneak peeks to the tracklight we will be launching soon with our upcoming month end warehouse sale.

Savour the elegant yet simplistically designed modern tracklights!

Glass and Lighting - How Lighting transforms itself with Glass!

From our continuous research in materials to accentuate lighting, hence the building where lights are deployed, we are excited to share the idea we have below.

Great lighting comes with great fixtures. Glass is one material that allows light to pass through and having the ability to change its course and colour.

Whether you have a firm understanding of refractive index or a pure glass artist, the end result is to control lights at its most basic natural form.

Let us help you and your building by bringing the best of what lighting and glass can do to your facade. All these costs will be compensated when your building becomes the talk of the town, the highlights in magazines, the awe and conversations of pedestrians. Without fail, traffic will be drawn in as no one can resist the temptation of immersing themselves in such a great work of art physically!

LED Lighting for Museum

Organising our research, we prepared the following write up on LED lighting in Museum.

Appropriate lighting for museums' artefacts and environment had been made easier with LED lighting. Compared to bulkier fluorescent / incandescent fixture, LED lightings smaller size makes lighting artefacts much easier.

With the high quality directional lighting, customisable lighting colours ('CCT') and accompanying filters and add ons, LED lighting will bring out the best of an art piece.

The reflective effect of LED light can be managed far more easily to allow photographers to photograph art pieces. This is done by choosing suitable power rating, filters and making use of ambient light. 

We can work with different angle light beam that forms the basis on whether that is spot or flood lighting effect. This may give a different effect in a camera.

On top of using dialux, a consultant that possess knowledge in available hardware globally and experience in the lighting effect will give you the most suitable lighting solution. This will minimise implementation time cost to bring out the best of your environment.

Above is probably a snapshot of the bigger discipline in 'Museum lighting research'. We shall bring you more updates soon.

IASPL top 5 picks for May 15 (Yellow theme)

Yellow wall blends in with black standing lamp, wooden floor
Yellow curtain, Yellow Cushion: fits well with natural sunlight
Open concept kitchen; yellow cupboards contrast well w Black
A sliding barn door for toilets, kitchen/living room separator?
Yellow sofa, Yellow foldable screen; gives layout flexibility
After a long day at work, sometimes we require subtle things to perk us up. Bright yellow in our home is surely the colour that may invigorate a tired soul. ON top of the energy it possesses, the colour does provide a sense of security and stableness. The right tone of yellow will further add a touch of class.

Will the colour be too loud? Probably not as it blends in well with natural sunlight or white lightings or white washed walls.

Yellow goes well with colours like; magenta, sky blue,  brown, green, orange, white and even black.

It is one colour that can blend into furniture and wood panelling without much effort.

Most people would prefer to use warm white lighting to create a soothing environment at home.  The warm white light bouncing off the wall will create a superbly relaxing environment that is truly warming.

If you have any ideas or experience with a bright yellow concept home, feel free to share with us!
