Workplaces need to have as much daylight as possible and be equipped with suitable artificial lighting. The quality of this artificial light depends on various characteristics, particularly level of illumination, luminance distribution, glare-free illumination, shade, light colour and colour rendering. The required level of these characteristics varies depending on the visual task being performed. For example, high-precision assembly work requires high levels of illumination so that small details can be seen properly; colour checks need very good colour rendering; and where surface textures need to be seen clearly, directional light is required to create shadows.
In this interactive facility, participants can experience for themselves how differences in individual characteristics affect visual perception.
