Light - As we See it! : #HealthyLightingDesigns

This blog would attempt to cover basic design factors typically considered in lighting design.

In 1998, i was asked about the material of the filament inside the incandescent bulb, for which i did not have a clue, at that time. I am an engineer and i have the aptitude to learn the subject is what i told the interviewer and surprisingly, got into the lighting industry!

Perhaps it is that shameful ignorance that gave me a voracious appetite to proactively seek, learn and understand lighting.
