How to light and for whom?

In the design of lighting, the emphasis is placed on a human approach and smart energy utilization. The demands we place on the experience and quality of lighting are constantly increasing. Requirements vary and several factors have to be taken into account when it comes to street light, such as:

  • Different conditions
  • Different times of the day
  • Composition of the traffic
  • Walkers and cyclists
  • Vehicles
