LEDs: Catching our eye

Paul Ruffles, of Lighting Design & Technology, sent through two photographs showcasing the use of LED lighting systems in museums settings.


The American Museum in Britain, lit with eighteen 2 W adjustable LED downlights. These were positioned on the ceiling to light a given area or object well with a specific beam angle. For example, the long information panel at the front was lit by just three spots with elongation beams to give a long wide light spread.
