Indirect Lighting

(Term of lighting design)

Lighting provided by reflection usually from wall or celiling surfaces. In daylighting, this means that the light coming from the sky or the sun is reflected on a surface of high reflectivity like a wall, a window sill or a special redirecting device. In electrical lighting the luminaires are suspended from the ceiling or wall mounted and distribute light mainly upwards so it gets reflected off the ceiling or the walls.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

Alternative lighting patterns are direct lighting and mixed direct/indirect lighting.
