Delivering the effect of natural light

A range of luminaires that simulates the appearance of skylights has been introduced by Whitecroft Lighting to deliver the illusion of outdoor light from standard suspended ceilings. Life Q is a square module with an opal diffuser to create the effect of a skylight. Life L is a continuous linear module that can be used to enhance architectural features or create interest in a ceiling plane. Energy-efficient T5 lamps overlap to avoid dark areas. Both versions use a Tp(a) diffuser to prevent the lamps being visible. The colour temperature of lamps used in Life luminaires can be chosen to determine the effect the illumination will have on its surroundings. Both Life L and Life Q can be used in areas where creative illumination is needed.
