Light hidden under a bushel

Dear Editor,

I have just read the article on ‘How to light a home to Part L1’. In fact, you don’t need to hide all the energy- saving lighting, as Franklite has proved by lighting the Green House for Huntingdonshire District Council.

We are a decorative lighting company and we understand that aesthetics in the home are as important as functionality. We have achieved both, along with a good level of illumination.

Yours faithfully,
Chris Batt

Tulips or people?

Dear Editor,
I just flew into Amsterdam airport at 5am and noticed an amazing number of small, bright sodium light patches on the clouds at relatively low level. It struck me that these are above the fields of poly-tunnels where flowers are grown. Apart from the light pollution aspect, is this really a sensible use of energy?

Don’t ridicule LED retailers

Dear Editor,

I find your article on Topshop in the November issue a little on the silly side – especially when such a cutting edge and bold LED lighting statement has been made. I cannot comment on behalf of Arcadia, but I do feel the lighting industry owes a little more respect to companies that push the boundaries against many odds.
