Product theme: LED Lighting Product competition
gLandscape lighting, gentle to humanh
Materials for landscape designs are soil, water, green, flowers, benches, bridges, pergola, etc. How can we lighten these materials gently and beautifully?
Traditional exterior lightings are spotlights, pole lights, brackets, down lights and foot lights. Even though LED lightings are introduced, we are still using the same designs with bulbs and fluorescents which has strong lighting onto these materials. We would like to introduce to landscape design, a lighting that is ggentle to human.h A lighting that cuddles the exterior parks and promenades, that hugs people searching for care from the stresses.
LED is long life, has little heat emission, can produce various colors, and has stable efficiency in cold weather.
It is also resistant against vibrations, small and light, suitable for exterior lighting. We expect new lighting design that harmonize with the landscape.
