As you know, we have great brands whose catalogues embrace many different kinds of light. But some of our strongest collections are from specialists. Millelumen is a specialist in linear lights. I introduced the collection in a previous post: click here for more details, and images.
You will gasp at their beauty and simplicity, but you should also be aware of their functionality. Many have a the option of a touchless sensor dimmer. Why? Well, in Britain, it is thought that centrally-controlled, pre-programmed “scenes” are desirable in domestic environments. Neither we here, nor the Germans, understand this.
Besides their cost and complexity, such systems do not reflect how people actually behave. If the light over a table is not the right brightness, the people sitting at that table should be able to adjust it to their exact requirements at that moment, in those precise conditions, simply by waving a hand underneath it. Isn’t that what you would want to be able to do? Thought so.
