At LEDucation 2016, Acuity Brands’ Peter Ngai discusses the concept of surround lighting as a notable strategy. This strategy introduces another layer to ambient-task in workspaces. Its purpose is to light the volume of the space by emphasizing vertical illumination.

Using a simulation, Ngai demonstrates that adding surround lighting can increase dimensionality (better modeling) and energy savings while allowing the lighting to be tuned to local application needs.
