  • IFS Mall in Chengdu

    This is IFS Mall in Chengdu china, plaza at front of south entrance.

    The coverage of illumination from spotlights is very wide.

    Does this lighting create a sense of security? or does it stimulate the human eye?

    As one of the techniques of stage lighting, there are times spotlight is directed directly to the audience from the stage. Obviously, lighting is intending to say "Hi, wake-up, now".

    It is not certain whether this commercial facility in Chengdu aims for it, but the permanent eye blinding light is clearly a big criminal. Questioner should ask a question that raises more discussion.
