Exhibit and Display Lighting
Exhibit and display lighting is intended to deliver a powerful form of visual communication. It directs the eye across the landscape of exhibits, signs or merchandise. It reveals critical information to engage the target group. In museums, galleries, showrooms, retail stores and exhibit halls, different “layers” of light are deployed, and controllable qualities of light are utilized to heighten both visual and emotional appeal of a featured object. Multiple layers of light work in unison to ensure that each element on display is the best possible light. Directional lighting that delivers a punch of narrow-beam light provides the contrast and interest that general lighting fails to produce. The use of accent lighting provided by recessed, surface- and track-mounted spotlights steers attention towards the object and creates visual interest. Showcase lighting is usually installed internal to the case.
