Enameled glass, crystalline glass and multi-colored glass were further developments that added to the aesthetics of lighting fixtures. At the same time came the evolution of the mirrors and beads that were initially exported in the fourteenth century to the luxurious lighting pieces found today, mainly lamps and chandeliers. Glass-makers were so revered for their art that they were given position in society. For example, glass-makers were permitted to carry swords, they were protected from prosecution and they even made their way into Venetian high-society. Such privileges were well-earned as they possessed a unique skill that created covetous pieces of art that left the world in awe.
One concern for those designing the lighting in an office space is how to make sure that lighting is switched off in a timely manner to ensure that energy is economised as much as possible. Using sensors is one way to ensure that certain less-used parts of work premises are lit only when they are being used. This is not really ideal for office spaces, however, as a CFL lamp or LED bulkhead light fitting that flickers on and off whenever it senses a movement is distracting and very impractical in this type of work environment. Instead consider implementing a timer system so that all lights are switched off at the end of the work day. Lastly, consider implementing spot lighting for each of your employees, so that they can tailor their lighting to their task as they are working at their desks. This can be as simple and effective as a desk lamp fitted with a durable, energy efficient bulb.
