Lighting of a contemporary private villa by LM5P - Le Mouton à 5 Pattes
For this new project, the main constraint evoked by the contracting authority was the respect of the maximum budget granted for the lighting part (equipment). This budget was not to exceed a budget of €8,000 excluding VAT.
At the same time as this request, however, the project owner wanted the lighting project for this villa to be both minimalist and comfortable. This is why the choice was essentially focused on architectural lighting and the use of recessed LED recessed spotlights for the interior parts to discreetly illuminate the villa. In this way, the luminance effect is avoided as much as possible in order to increase visual comfort.
Apart from the architectural suite, another key element of this villa is the use of light grooves in the living room and master bedroom. Always with a concern for discretion, they subtly and elegantly underline the contours of the rooms.
As for the decorative pieces, they are selected from products that highlight the raw materials, such as rope, wood and concrete. A Pipistrello table lamp by Martinelli Luce can also be seen as the main decorative lighting piece. A luminaire, with the particularity of having a copy in the permanent collection of MoMA in New York, it is now considered one of the flagship objects of industrial design.
Finally, again in order to respect the budgetary constraint, no home automation system was installed. In fact, all the lighting in the villa is equipped with a dimming system based on the DIM TRIAC protocol to vary the intensity of the light. Just as efficient, this type of dimmer has the advantage of being less expensive.
