Gineico Lighting Bianco Latte Single Krea

Pendant lights for your commercial interior

Show-stopper pendant lighting is key in a commercial space and the type of lighting selected for an interior can turn a dull room into a well lit productive space. Pendant lights can also offer fun or sophisticated elements to your office, building, retail space and restaurant.

A building may not have natural light and the quality of indirect and direct light is important in creating a positive experience for occupants in the space. When in the design process think about how the pendant light will illuminate the interior alongside the natural light you already have. Integration of the pendant light with recess lighting elements are central to the design process.

Pendant lights can be either in clusters, hung in a decorative series, or as a stand-alone light fixture that serves also as the focal point of a room.

Standalone pendants

Rules of engagement for selecting the size of a stand-alone pendant light is the larger the space you want to illuminate the bigger the pendant light. Decorative pendants perform as a task light, helping you to perform a particular task. Used as a  spotlight this stand-alone light fixture serves as the focal point of a room.

Cluster pendants

One of the more impressive lighting trends is clustering, which works beautifully over tables and reception areas. A cluster of lights can be two to ten lights hanging from a standalone fixture.

Design execution

A smaller pendant light can be appropriate for a smaller desk acting as a task light. Whilst a cluster of smaller three pendants is suited to a large reception area harnessing a cosy ambient light.

Consider pendant lights that have dimmers installed so that you can enjoy both bright and ambient light. Or select lights with diffusers to create a soft glow rather than a harsh shadow. Some design execution is more appropriate than others depending on your lighting plan-so think carefully about the appearance, practicality, energy-performance of your space and ambience.

Here we share our selection of pendant lights to find the perfect pendant for your commercial space.
