In 1933, the Japanese writer Jun’Ichiro Tanizaki wrote: “Like a phosphorescent stone which, when in darkness, shines, but when exposed to the light, looses its fascination as a precious stone, beauty looses its existence if one removes the effects of the shadows.
As you rightly understood, we will talk here about light and shadow. Because one doesn’t go without the other. Lighting is of course important to see properly in a space, work or living, but it is also the DNA of your fitting-up, its essential part. Whether we talk of the natural light flowing through a bay window into a house, or more diffusely into an attic converted into an office, or artificial lighting that brings light in subtle touches, it is the combination of all these forms of light which will give shape and volume to your space, and give a rythm between all the different spaces.
