02. Benefits of headless lighting


For a small room, using a ceiling lamp/chandelier as the main lighting is the simplest and most direct way, but if you encounter a space with more complex functions and a larger area, it is not enough.

Imagine that you only have a ceiling lamp over your head when you are reading, watching TV, chatting, or eating. Isn’t that a little depressing?

At this time, the downlight is divided and combined with no main lighting, and the corresponding lighting mode is switched according to different use scenes, which can create a more appropriate lighting atmosphere.
