Homeowners are always looking for that perfect fixture for their artwork, and an optical framing light can be that technology that leaves a lasting impact. Artwork is meant to inspire, and to elevate the space it inhabits, but cheap fixtures will prevent it from reaching such heights. Hotspots and shadows can undermine a painting or sculpture’s appearance, so homeowners should always think quality when setting up an artistic display.
An optical framing light is designed for various artistic subjects, and can generally work with a painting or sculpture of any size or shape. It is normally concealed inside the ceiling, which can promote a minimalist aesthetic that pairs well with most subjects.
Although the major feature of these fixtures is that they can be masked in a way that contours their illumination to the subject. For example, a pair of adjustable shutters can be used to trim off excess illumination at the edges, while a custom metal slide can be produced for a sculpture. Once attached, the fixture will produce no spill illumination, brightening up only the subject and adding a lit from within effect. This powerful effect is something that most people have not seen before, and it is extremely stark, so it will not go unnoticed. And getting noticed is the whole point of placing art in the first place. These fixtures just make it stand out that much more.
