What types of lighting will good designers have in their armoury?Lighting schemes include a mix of ambient (general), task (functional) and accent (drama/character) lighting, and the balance and interplay between these will depend on the space, and on how it will be used and by whom. The more knowledge a lighting designer has of the products and technologies available, the more imaginative and flexible they can be in the schemes they design for you.Some lighting designers are tied to their own lighting products, while others are independent. “Ask any potential designer if they’re restricted in their use of product ranges or brands,” Neilsays, and tap into their knowledge when it comes to product selection. “Most have their favourite suppliers, because they know they’re reliable in terms of quality, supply and so on,” he adds.Using an independent lighting designer has advantages. “As an independent, I can be objective when recommending which lights would work in a particular scheme,” Sian says.There are other positives, too, Toria says. “Being unrestricted by what we specify makes it easier for us to adapt to any budget.”
