Light and space
In 1923, Le Corbusier wrote: "A house is habitable only if it is full of light and air". At the time, that was a revolutionary idea; today it is a defining maxim of modern architecture. Light is closely connected with personal sense of wellbeing. It is what makes vision possible in the first place – and is also one of the most effective design tools available. Light
- has the capacity to transform a room
- can enhance the effect of colours
- impacts on our mood.
These are three good reasons for devoting as much attention to home lighting as to the choice of a new sofa. Here, you can find out how to harness light effectively for the design of your home.
Mood makers: light and colour
Colour has a pronounced effect on us; we find it stimulating or soothing. Correctly used, light and colour can be combined to guarantee a feel-good environment. Here, you will find tips on which lamps to use to optimise the impact of coloured walls and how to harness light to brighten up daily home life in more senses than one.
Clever use of light

Light to enhance wellbeing
Daylight conditions are constantly changing. These changes affect our mood. Different lighting moods are also very easy to realise in the home.
