It never fails to amaze us how a well planned architecture that includes the understanding and usage of natural lighting results in a splendid finish.
Engaging and utilising natural lighting not only reduces the electricity and carbon consumption; more importantly it brings us, the people living within closer to nature once more.
Let us share projects which we thought are really great through careful understanding and adoption of natural lighting.

From our daily exposure to all types of lightings (from designing lightings to lighting technology and applications to lighting fixtures and systems), we begun also to explore creation of light.
That made us explore natural wonders where nature itself (be in a bacteria to a deep sea creature to our physical human body) creates light. This concept or emitting light form has been termed as BIO-LIGHT.
Powering lights through electricity has always been a common knowledge to us as the only way of doing it. But what it if it can be powered by living organism?
Bioluminescent light is a new concept of powering light through living organism, like fireflies, being explored by Philips. It emits out low voltage lighting that is suitable for ambience lighting or signage in the dark.
Due to its low lumen output, it is not meant to compete in the same market as LED or other light source. But, it possesses the same energy saving quality as to LED. Further, it does not require electricity to power them; it feeds on methane and composed material to sustain life, hence the continuous generation of lighting. Being just a living organism, I suppose that it can take up various form and sizes, making it versatile in many other environment, like becoming a road marking at night or lights in dark places like theatre or cinema.
Currently the life span of the bacteria or other light emitting organisms are limited to days, but scientist is working to extend the life span to months, making it more realistic for use.
Using bioluminescent light, in my opinion could bring about a new design for indoor lighting as it is unique and have no restriction in shapes. It could be more of a complement to LED lighting design or traditional light.
However, such bio-light would lack the “smartness” of the future connected lighting and the dimming control as one would desired and compared to LED.
At this stage, I believe it would be much more expensive to install and conceptualize.

At least in Singapore or in my line of work, i'm delivering the last 2 steps to clients and people. From well know companies trying to make a lasting impression on their brands to a simple hawker lighting up his sign boards with colourful lights to attract customers. Now, let us give a teaser to what is interactive lighting.
Many years back we did this for volkswagon GTI launch in Singapore. Using sensors, sounds, lightings and controllers, we allow any walk in guest to feel like they are speeding down the high way. We were probably the first few that is able to create such public set ups of interactive lighting in Singapore. Now we are exploring how technology can create a even more power expression!
Do check out the Artscience Museum at Marine Bay Sands if you want to feel like you are in a Starwars movie.
Besides the many great digital artworks by Teamlab, the most notable and intriguing is this 180,000 pieces of LED lightings strung together to create an amazing galaxy. This is probably the easiest and cheapest way we can be to feel like in space!!
With the RGBW LED modules, i'm very sure a hugh amount of time is spent in stringing and laying things on site together. Then we have the programmers working out to program each LEDs to complement one another. It is really an amazing experience for the sense standing in infront of all the lights that glows, glitters, explodes and dim down with the soundtrack playing at the back.
From bright white, to cold blue to a plethora of colours, the entire lighting set up was synergistic. (I've then taken close up of the LEDs used)
Whatever i say is probably an understatement of that exhibition. For LED lights lovers and space dudes, seriously you should check it out. Kudos to the museum and Teamlab for bringing on this Art piece in Singapore!!
