Illuminated ceilings through history

ONLINE VIDEO CONTENT


Luminous ceilings provide spacious room impressions and can provide different types of lighting. Besides this, they are, however, also metaphors of the natural sky and a mirror of an aesthetic and architectural debate.

This look at ceilings through the ages reveals that the image of heaven, which reached a theological culmination in the luminous Renaissance stucco techniques, turned into large-scale light emanating surfaces.

Even if the luminance of contemporary LED screens has increased intensely and thereby creates a point of attraction, designers still look to establish a pictorial language for an impressive appearance.

 

This movie is a shortened version of the paper that was presented by Thomas Schielke at the Professional Lighting Design Conference in Berlin in 2009.
