This category comprises two different types of lighting that can be considered polar opposites. On one hand it is accent lighting, on the other an ambient one. Both have their applications in interior design, to enhance mood or atmosphere or focus attention on certain details. The human eye reacts differently to different brightnesses, contrast between them– a simple white light can feel warm or cold depending on the light source used. It can be tuned using modern technologies to affect the mood in a certain way.
The traditional light sources – fluorescent and incandescent – have their colour light and temperature given by their physical properties. In their case the possibilities of RGB mixing are very narrow compared to LED technology. The RGB mixing uses the simple theory of additive colour mixing: the intersection of the colours creates new secondary colours while the combination of all three makes a white. Different combinations allow for different results in the colour spectrum.
