Engaging a lighting professional simplifies the process of realising your architectural vision.

Words by Justin Foote

A good lighting design will make a space useable, interesting and aesthetically pleasing. The design process starts with the project owner, architect or interior designer working together with the lighting designer.

The ideal outcome is a good design where the lighting is placed to achieve the optimum mix of ambient and task lighting, taking into consideration different tasks and the light levels needed on different surfaces in the space. Feature and accent lighting will be located to draw the eye and make an impression, and the light fixtures will be carefully chosen to balance quality, energy efficiency and budget.

Overall, the result will be a space that is visually comfortable, welcoming and reflects the culture of the people who use that space.

Available in two sizes—360mm and 700mm—and multiple finishes, the Italian-made Jeena pendant is form and function at its simplified best.

Lightplan: brilliance by design

To achieve the best lighting outcome, Lightplan has a design service as part of its overall offering. Lighting Specialist Tara-Lee Brennan says Lightplan’s designers understand architecture, understand commercial realities and they understand light.

“Within the Lightplan family, our designers come from a wide range of backgrounds, from architecture and interior design careers through to electrical contracting and we can draw on that expertise based on the relevance of the strengths and experience of staff to each project.

“We can help with everything from illuminance calculations and code compliance, conceptual development and responding to a brief, to development of comprehensive lighting plans. Or we can just offer sound advice on how to integrate lighting within the fabric of a building.”

Lightplan stocks a comprehensive range of high-end decorative pendants from European suppliers, which means the company can support projects with a quick turnaround.

Lightplan: bringing designer lighting to New Zealand

“We regularly update our international offering from suppliers such as Bomma, Ligeo, ZAVA, Trizo21, Baulmann; EBB & FLOW and others. Our new products cover everything from linear extrusions through to more refined, hand-made luxury pieces—and there are some really good, cost-effective choices as well.

“One of the stand-out products recently added to our range is Ligeo, a modular 3D system comprising individual luminaires that link together to create abstract and dynamic forms, as the components are cleverly designed to maintain flexibility. Even once installed there’s a huge amount of scope to change up the look. Ligeo is ideal for a range of commercial applications and is available now as a stock item.”

“We’re also really proud to work with a number of New Zealand manufacturers such as Maker Design Studio.”

For this commercial project, Lightplan specified Ligeo, a modular 3D system of individual luminaires that link together to create dynamic forms.

Lightplan: shining in commercial, retail and residential settings

With the high volume of commercial projects that Lightplan delivered over recent months, Tara has observed many commercial workspaces featuring elements such as suspended planting systems with integrated lighting.

“Hand-formed pieces and those in a palette of natural colours are popular for bringing an element of nature, while the ‘New York loft’ aesthetic, with its pared-back simplicity and industrial undertone, is also still very strong within the commercial realm.

“Lightplan has a range of statement products that are suitable for these spaces where the scale of the pieces can really be shown off to full advantage.

“Construction projects evolve and change, sometimes overnight. As a local supplier, Lightplan can assist with last-minute changes as we are able to customise locally, with light studios and showrooms in Auckland and Wellington.“

For stock items, they can ensure delivery in under a week, while bespoke items are mostly deliverable within 6–8 weeks. Everything from full-house lots to large-scale commercial developments.
