Recessed spotlights – small lights with considerable effect
Recessed spotlights can be unobtrusively recessed into ceilings and walls and unite the pure functionality of light emission and the additional visual value of a small but fine piece of design. So they equally enjoy great popularity in private households and commercial places.
Fields of application of a recessed spotlight are manifold, because it doesn’t need much space due to its small size and its “immersion” into the ceiling, wall or floor. Furthermore, many versions are directional, so that the direction of light can be set individually. This can happen either by a classic gimbal bearing or an innovative restraint system like the recessed spotlight from the Wittenberg series by Mawa Design. In case you have a luminaire that’s adjustable flexibly, you are the owner of a recessed spotlight. Whereas a common downlight is a luminaire that usually send its light downwards. Just like the “Wan Downlight” by Flos.
Recessed spotlights are remarkable for their lighting effects and discreet elegance. As distinct pieces of art characterized by a reserved design they attract the attention of the viewer and direct it towards the illuminated objects or area. Besides, if they are run on compact fluorescent lights or LEDs, they present themselves as masters of energy efficiency.
“Circle S1” by Delta Light, for example. This recessed spotlight comes with a reduced design and is one the best selling items in the online Shop of light11. This is no surprise, since this luminaire is a real attention getter with its appearance that reminds of an oversized eye floating over our heads. Recessed into the wall or ceiling and turnable by up to 30 degrees, it convinces also with its flexibility.
Alone or arranged in rows, a recessed spotlight illuminates home entrances including the house number, name and door bell, leads guests into your home and keeps unwanted visitors away by “highlighting” them. A recessed spotlight provides important orientation in corridors, hallways, or long stairs. As general or zone lighting, it makes for moderate lighting accents in living rooms and serves as a decorative and convenient lighting solution in dining. In bathrooms, recessed spotlights set highlights in terms of wellness. The recessed lights are used in offices or restaurants as well, where spotlights put objects of decoration into the focus. The small light sources are also applied to set the stage for shop windows or display cabinets in a discreet and restraint way. In summer, recessed spotlights invite to stay longer in the garden and enjoy the fine weather. In winter, they allow the view onto the white grandeur from your home.
