Education Lighting

Computer lab with colorful windows and an atrium with Sequence pendants suspended

Like many spaces, schools and campuses require lighting that is energy efficient, durable, easy to maintain, and flexible in style. Our luminaires contribute to productive learning environments across the country in classrooms, cafeterias, residence halls, corridors, academic offices, exterior walls, and athletics spaces.

Getting Around Campus

From corridors full of classrooms to large common areas, transition spaces use luminaires that complement the lighting design in other areas, but may be larger in scale or more decorative.

Classroom Lighting

The activities that occur within the classroom space have evolved with the adoption of technology and pedagogy styles. Rather than simply provide task lighting bright enough for students to work with pencil and paper, classroom lighting now needs to work with projection equipment, screen glare, and multi-purpose activities. Visa Lighting's direct/indirect luminaires help support those busy areas. 

 

 

Broadway pendants are good over tables as they provide glare-free task lighting and add dimension to the space

Library Lighting

For students, the library is more than a place to access books. It offers a chance to unwind, collaborate, quietly study, or host events. The right lighting can draw people in and make them feel engaged and welcome. Our luminaires have filled hundreds of libraries across the country, either to provide ambient light or an eye-catching feature.

Cafeterias, Cafés, and Lounges

School dining areas are a central activity space, whether in cafeterias or the more restaurant-style cafés seen on college campuses. We offer luminaires that serve decorative and performance purposes, with a wide variety of styles to integrate with the cafeteria's interior design.   

 

 

Large, open cafeterias with high ceilings benefit from pendants suspended at different cord lengths to create a consistent plane of light above the tables.
