THE ART OF LIGHT

AUTEK approaches the craft of lighting not only as a science of precision, but also a creative art, under three cardinal principles:

 

Autek products underscore a responsibility towards end-users and the larger environment

Autek products reflect a commitment to elevate the role of light beyond function

Autek makes possible the different expressions of light as imagination allows

• LIGHT AND HUMANS

Human life and vision are dependent on light. As a source of replenishing energy, it is hardly surprising that light from its natural source, the sun, has been revered in religion, science and the humanities through the ages.

 

Defining the form, colour and texture of architecture and landscapes, the medium does not just alter our perception but also our experience and way of life.

 

Employing optical and reflector technology, AUTEK products not only serve the functional need for visibility, but also optimize visual comfort, with their capabilities in controlling light output, distribution and glare.

• LIGHT AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Artificial lighting, made widely accessible with the advent of industrialization, have given rise to their unthoughtful use, leading to energy wastage and other environmental problems such as light pollution.

 

Leveraging on state-of-the-art research, AUTEK incorporates the sustainability concept into its products for energy efficiency and conservation.

• LIGHT AND ARCHITECTURE

Light is an important design element in architecture. It defines form, interprets space, enhances architectural beauty and creates the moods and ambiences we experience.

 

At AUTEK, we offer a diverse range of lighting tools, filters and accessories for multiple functional and ambient effects to highlight the textures and features of buildings, while creating contrasts and drama for a diversity of spatial experiences and articulation.
