Liquid Light® – Because life is too short for boring environments
Lighting for People
Just like air quality, thermal comfort and acoustics, lighting is a precondition for people to live and work comfortably. A good lighting system reacts instantly to its surroundings and the users, hereby enhancing usability and comfort in a space.
With an aim to take part in designing the cities of the future and make them more environment-friendly, efficient, and navigable, Liquid Light® is Light Bureau's answer to the needs of modern life and society.
Light Bureau has designed a lighting solution customized for the end-user, which embraces the challenges of designing human centred lighting without any direct involvement from the individual. The concept is inspired by natural light and based on the philosophy that the lighting should respond to and harmonize with the changes that is physically happening through the day and night. It is a design concept that brings light to life, where the lighting adapts to the users and creates a visual environment with its own unique expression.
With motion sensors the light can be shaped to a person’s personal light zone or set the mood in a space that facilitates a meeting between people.They detect human movement and are in constant dialogue with the users of a space. Motion triggers the lighting to seamlessly change and adapt accordingly. This optimises adaptability and guidance for each person as he or she moves around in a building or outdoors. Advanced detection and controlling ensures maximum efficiency and sustainability without compromising functionality or visual quality, while smooth dimmer curves ensures that the changes of light are seamlessly integrated into the environment.
The Biophilia Effect - Liquid Light brings life to our surroundings
Traditional sources of real-time data, like anemometers, lux meters, and temperatures, as well as untraditional sources of data, like cloud formations, bird migration, and human movement, are combined with conventional parameters. This combination of data determines the organic light scenarios. Thus the light’s visual expression relies on automatically generated sine curves, which adjust to seasonal changes and time of day, thereby creating ever-changing scenarios.
With Liquid Light, we embrace biophilic design in our projects. It is designed to make us experience natural phenomena through light. Through this design concept we add an element of surprise to our surroundings expressed in dynamic light scenarios tied to natural formations, which instinctively improves our connection to nature. When we include Liquid Light® we blend organic elements with the architectural design which increases our alertness and sense of well-being.
Liquid Light® at The Musicon Path in Roskilde, Denmark
The interactive lighting is designed to match the municipality’s desire to provide of a playful ride, to invite people to use the pump track and put it into play at night.
Liquid Light® at Powerhouse Brattørkaia, Norway
Liquid Light combined with functional lighting optimizes energy consumption and adds a unique visual expression at the world's northernmost energy-positive building.
Liquid Light® at Under, the world's largest underwater restaurant
"Due to the minimal amounts of daylight below the sea, and with a natural reference to the theme of the restaurant, we envisioned that the lighting ’floats’ into the room where it is needed. It is finely tuned to the surroundings inside the restaurant and designed in harmony with the nature around with an aim of creating a visual ecosystem”, says Morten Jensen, Light Bureau’s Country Manager in Norway.
