Why You Should Switch Your Lights to LED
Robert Sonneman shares his thoughts on designing with LED lighting :
"With the advances in LED technology, lighting is no longer just an accessory to a designed environment. Rather, the dynamic capabilities of technologically sophisticated lighting within a space impact the emotional, physical, and psychological experience. It impacts the perception, utility, performance, and well-being of people as a synchronous component of a smart controlled environment. These are all crucial to keeping in mind when designing with LEDs."
