Lighting in Design

The newly opened Sun International Sun Arena seats 8500 people and is set to host some of the biggest music concerts in South Africa. The ground floor of the venue has retractable seating and can double up as a conference venue, while the balance of the seating is fixed and raked upwards from the stage. The height from ceiling to floor in the venue ranges from 4 m at the top of the seating plan to 18 m on the ground floor, and Giantlight, the company responsible for the lighting, had to accommodate this in the design.

A report by Grand View Research, Inc. indicates that the global high-end lighting market is expected to grow to $24.32 billion by 2025. According to the research, the increasing demand for connected lighting systems has been a major factor driving market growth, with major technological innovations such as connected, dimmable, colour-changing, and sensor-enabled lighting contributing to the increase.

Vigilant Global, a research, development and information technology company, mandated Provencher Roy to redesign its offices in Montreal. LumiGroup, a key collaborator in lighting for the project assisted the interior designers to enhance each room with lighting adapted for a refined, modern and dynamic environment.

The United States Department of Energy (DoE) recently released a report that found the efficacy of LED downlights is lower than for most other LED product categories. The Snapshot Report on LED Downlights states that the mean efficacy for downlight luminaires only increased by 1 lm/W in the past 15 months, while other comparable product types gained between 5 lm/W and 13 lm/W.
