(UK) – John Cullen Lighting joined kitchen designers Bulthaup Clerkenwell to speak at London showroom during Clerkenwell Design Week.
Associate Designer Luke Thomas from John Cullen Lighting told a full audience how to create the best lighting for this room at the heart of any home. He explained that the most important element is for the lighting to be flexible throughout the day to change for the multitude of uses from cooking, eating, working and dining.
Using a number of images of Bulthaup kitchens with lighting schemes and fittings designed by John Cullen Lighting, Thomas showed how layered lighting creates the most interesting effects from adding an LED strip under an island to create a floating effect or adding floor washers into a kick plinth to show off the floor finish. Thomas discussed how the introduction of LEDs has opened up a fresh new world of lighting possibilities but it was key to select the good quality LEDs with good colour consistency, colour rendition and colour temperature.
