Danish artist and lighting designer Birgit Oestergaard specializes in creating custom made interior lighting solutions to businesses and private homes. The Nordic-inspired sculptural pendants, wall lamps and floor lamps act as organic sculptures and have become popular design objects adding new dimensions to the modern, minimalist decor. Light affects the emotions and a successful solution of lighting projects consists of both technology and psychology. Flat, functional lighting has a stressful impact on people; whereas decorative lighting creates ambiance, while the experience of texture and solid forms will disappear. Therefore the optimum project lighting solution consists of a combination of functional - and decorative lighting. To ensure the best option on lighting tasks to hotels, offices and shops the development phase is implemented in close dialogue with architects and interior designers and successful project solutions often act as a unified concept where lighting is an active part of the artistic decoration

Pendant Lamp

Custom made interior lighting by Birgit Oestergaard Placing a pendant or a chandelier in the room is the best way to gather a group around a meal or a job. A ceiling-mounted light source has an integral function and creates - together with indirect light from other light sources - a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Replacement of flat, cold light with hard contrasts to light sources with a warmer color has an effect on productivity and human social conventions

Daylighting is the oldest method of interior lighting. Daylighting is simply designing a space to use as much natural light as possible. This decreases energy consumption and costs, and requires less heating and cooling from the building. Daylighting has also been proven to have positive effects on patients in hospitals as well as work and school performance. With the development of electricity and the incandescent light bulb, the luminosity of artificial lighting improved enough to be used indoors. They became widely used and extended the time that people could stay up, among other developments. A famous building designed without interior lighting and windows is The Pantheon in Rome and the idea for this architectural pearl stems from the Genesis. The lighting of the entire building was believed to come from God and the congregation could imagine Heaven through the round opening in the enormous dome. Without comparison this historic building demonstrates how the choice of interior lighting creates the atmosphere of the entire room
