Título The integration of task and ambient lighting in office furniture.
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1976, Vol.6, No.9, p.14-23. Illus. 2 ref.
Resumen Incorporating lighting into office furniture, with lighting for task visibility supplied only at the task and reduced levels elsewhere, results in energy savings, a more interesting space and better task visibility. This furniture-integrated lighting demands a design evolution, combining the efforts of lighting and industrial designers. The authors examine the visual needs of the office, the relation of office workers to their furniture, and the economics of furniture-integrated office lighting. Several trial approaches were developed with a prototype installation of task and ambient lighting luminaires built into typical office furniture. The arrangements are illustrated, and details of luminaires are given.
