Course description

Lighting in Interior Design Workshop

lighting design, interior design, interior design courseThis intensive two-day course is specially designed to show how the different fittings and lamps can achieve many effects - and takes advantage of the brand new KLC Lighting Studio. KLC is the first private design school in the UK to have such a facility for this exciting subject.

With energy efficiency being a major part of any design,KLC School of Design has introduced a new energy effect light box in our lighting studio to accomodate this lighting course. The Light box illustrates the effects of fluorescent, cold cathode and LED light sources, and demonstrates different colour temperatures, their light output and how to control them. With easy to view fittings, the light box clearly shows the size of each light source, its control gear or driver and how it is mounted. This is now particularly important because compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations has become increasingly stringent. Part L requires that energy efficient lighting be used in both domestic (Part L1) and non-domestic (Part L2) buildings. The regulations currently apply to all new buildings and refurbishments of over 100m² floor area. The light box has therefore become a useful tool to enable students to see the radical advances in lighting technology.

This course is designed to enable students to understand the basic principles of lighting design, and be competent in developing a lighting scheme into a detailed lighting plan.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for those with some understanding of design principles, but without detailed knowledge of lighting. Suitable for interior design students.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

On completion of this course students will achieve the prestigious KLC Certification.

Course Content

Day 1: Lighting Principles

Dealing with the basic principles of lighting, the day will encourage the individual to think about lighting at the outset of a project rather than as an addition to a scheme.

There will be studio demonstrations where the different effects can be seen working and an exciting, inspirational lecture will be given showing the different ways the professional lighting designer achieves these effects. In addition, a practical studio session will cover the principle types of lamps, fittings and controls available to the designer.

  • How to develop a lighting scheme
  • What fittings to use
  • Where to place the fittings
  • Building up the circuits and layering of light
