Título original Tendances modernes de l'éclairage des bureaux en Amérique. [en francés]
Información bibliográfica 1978, No.2, p.54-61. Illus.
Resumen After referring to the American tradition of expecting high levels of visual performance, this article takes note of recent trends in energy saving, even if detrimental to visibility and productivity. Lower levels of general lighting, recommended for general and non-critical areas (at 1/3 and 1/9 of task level), are possible only if the planned future use of such areas is known. Review of reduction possibilities by adequate use of luminaires (preferably fluorescent) and by calculations of visual comfort and lighting efficacy. Another aspect considered is that of the adaptation of task lighting to flexible workplace organisation in an open-plan office: relocating ceiling luminaires, flexible wiring, speech privacy, furniture-mounted luminaires.
