Executive office lighting design by ILD offers a number of specific benefits that contribute to a productive comfortable, attractive work environment for corporate leadership. Illuminations professionals employ a strategy we called “layered lighting” which allows us to enhance utility with aesthetic without neglecting the practical elements of design that make executive office lighting a specialization few lighting design firms can truly master. We utilize a number of proprietary techniques that directly impact the activities of an executive office with lighting designs that facilitate task completion and designer lighting elements for executive offices that highlight decorative elements reflective of position, power, personality, and corporate culture.
Direct lighting forms a critical component of executive office lighting design. By focusing bright light onto the desk and other work areas, we create more intense fields of illumination with specialty lamps and fixtures that eliminate glare. This helps an executive work comfortably for longer periods of time by eliminating eyestrain headaches caused by glare created by generic fluorescent overheads panels. Our lighting design team will cost-effectively replace these panels with a combination of lamps and fixtures that will evenly distribute light downward from the ceiling onto an executive’s desk and make the entire work area become clearly visible with equally distributed illumination.
To aesthetically compliment direct lighting we use indirect lighting designed to fill the vertical cube of an executive office with an “aura” of softer light that eliminates shadows. This form of lighting is also known as ambient lighting and plays a very critical role to maintaining healthy emotions requisite to true professionalism productivity, and teamwork. Visitors, employees, and business partners respond with greater levels of positive emotion when the whole room is illuminated to some degree. By combining these two very specialized lighting effects, we create a public space for those who enter the office for private meetings, negotiations, and employee reviews while simultaneously maintain a private work space in which the executive can more productively make decisions and accomplish tasks.
Because executive offices showcase unique design elements of a refined nature, lighting for aesthetics also places a critical role in developing truly custom, superior results for our clients. Many people for whom we work decorate their offices with sculptures, fine art, antique furniture, and collections of fine hardback books. Each of these constitutes a design element that our office lighting team must compliment for an executive client. Due to a high number of clients in the fine arts world and extensive partnerships and cross training in construction and architectural design, we are able to implement specialty accent lighting in places within the room that other firms often fail to even notice. We use specialty strip lights to illuminate books and bookshelves without revealing the light source. We install cove lights to accent vaulted ceilings. We utilize proprietary technology to create “lighting from within” effects around three-dimensional art and precise levels of lighting to showcase the custom colors of fine works of art. We do this because executives who take the time to decorate their office space accordingly expect their decorations to be clearly visible to visitors, clients, and partners. To create a sense of unity between works of art, furniture, and workspace, we install luminary fixtures in the ceilings and complimentary high-end decorative sconces that wash the wall with special lighting effects complimentary to interior room architecture.
Whenever possible, executive office lighting designers at ILD deploy energy conscious technology to help keep overhead at a minimum and illumination at a maximum. As distributors of the world’s leading commercial office lighting manufacturers, we can find the ideal fixture, bulb, or luminary for any design element we need to address. In practical terms, this means executives can always count on ILD to get to the bottom line by making the abstract and intangible concrete, tangible, and aesthetically attractive in any lighting theme we deploy on behalf of corporate leadership and purpose.
