Installation of professional lighting systems

Lighting systems are installations that allow light to be regulated and controlled to adapt to a specific space.
With so many different types of lighting available, it can be a little confusing when designing a lighting scheme for your home or office. Next, we will briefly explain what each lighting system consists of and why we recommend it:

  • Ambient or general lighting
  • Direct or task lighting
  • Accent or accent lighting

Types of lighting

Ambient lighting system

This is one of the most common lighting systems. Ambient light is characterized by being soft and illuminating spaces without causing excessive brightness. In photography and cinematography, ambient light is considered “natural light” within a room. In the decoration, the ambient light is similar, and aims to make the lighting as natural and flat as possible. Although ambient light provides sufficient illumination, it is not recommended if you work near things or in spaces where you want to highlight a point.

How to use ambient lighting?

The use of ambient light allows you to create warm and pleasant environments that relax the eyes. It is a good tool to create spaces that transmit calm and peace, such as in some cafes, massage and relaxation rooms, auditoriums, etc.

We recommend using the following lights to create ambient light:

  • Chandeliers
  • Hanging lamps
  • Built-in lamps

Direct or task lighting system

There are many places where it is useful to install a task lighting system.

It consists of a small, concentrated light that illuminates tasks when working. Task lighting is intended to help you see when doing projects where you need finer light, such as reading, cooking, writing, sewing, and many other things.

Task lighting only works well when used as contrast lighting, that is, in spaces where the lighting is not very bright and direct lighting can hit an object or task.

How to use task lighting?

Task lighting helps to naturally stimulate the brain, allowing you to be more alert and focused. Many companies choose to use task lighting in their offices precisely because of the benefits and efficiency it brings.

We recommend using the following devices to create task lighting:

  • Hanging lamps
  • Flexible arm lamps

Accent or accent lighting

This is a very concentrated light intended to draw attention to its focal point. Accent lighting is a way to add style to any space. This helps create light and shadows in the space and accentuate the points where you want the attention to reside. Accent lighting systems are primarily used in artwork, book shelves, furniture, collections, and in the architecture of designer homes.

How to use accent lighting?

Accent lighting is a type of lighting that creates a very sophisticated atmosphere, as it allows spaces or objects to be accentuated. This lighting system is widely used both inside and outside museums, historical buildings and art exhibitions.

We recommend using the following lights to create accent lighting:

  • Wall lights
  • Built-in lights

Our lighting systems

At SONIMALAGA we specialize in the design and installation of lighting systems for all types of spaces, creating light and shadow projects that can alter the focus of attention, modify perspective and even increase efficiency.

Next, we will talk about the most popular lighting systems and their particularities.

Stage lighting systems

Our stage lighting installation service is based on the creation of lights and shadows to create an ideal space for the execution of works on a stage, auditorium or presentation and party room.

We are in charge of studying the space and designing a stage lighting system that adapts to the needs of the place; projectors, LED lights, color changing, spotlights, light control devices, etc. In addition, we also undertake the design and installation of video and sound systems for any type of surface.

Production room lighting systems

Each room requires specific lighting that depends on the use that is going to be given to the space. In the case of installing lighting in production rooms and recording studios, the objective is based on creating a good atmosphere that allows you to see the objects and material with which you are going to work.

It is also important to have a lighting control device that allows you to regulate the light and custom-designed technical furniture.

Office lighting systems

Offices are spaces that require creating an atmosphere free of distractions that allows concentration and offers good visibility. This is why task lighting systems are used in many cases, which allow attention to be focused on the object from which the work is being done.

In addition to improving productivity, companies look for lighting systems that save costs, which is why LED lighting is common in these types of spaces.
At SONIMALAGA, in addition to installing lighting systems for offices, we design and install video and sound devices for smart companies.

Museum and exhibition hall lighting

One of the main challenges of creating a museum or exhibition hall is enabling the space to offer a unique experience to any visitor.

All this is achieved through adequate decoration and, very importantly, knowing how to play with lights and shadows through a good lighting system adapted to the room. In these cases, accent lighting is usually the most used, thanks to the fact that it adds sophistication to any showroom.
