Direct/Indirect Lighting

In daylighting this means that some part of the light of the sky or the sun is bounced off some surface, while at least part of the sky is still visible from the point in question. In electrical lighting, it says that luminaires of different types are installed, or there are luminaires that emit light both up to the ceiling and down to the workspace.
