Publications in the UK dedicated to the wonderful world of illumination
Many architects, interior designers, developers and end users have an interest in lighting – and so they should, as Le Corbusier said:
“Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms.”
