With the invention of the light bulb, Thomas Alva Edison heralded the era of electric light. In his inventor's factory at Menlo Park near New York on October 21, 1879, he produced the first carbon filament lamp that burned brightly and for several days. He received the patent three months later. The foundation stone has been laid for a significantly improved quality of life. Rooms can now be lit at the push of a button and dark hours at night can be used just as effectively as the day.
But in addition to the obvious functionality of interior lighting, there are now also opportunities to create atmospheric atmospheres and unusual designs in rooms. The indoor lighting category includes a large number of various lamps and luminaires that differ primarily in terms of application and appearance. There are ceiling lights that are attached to the ceiling, wall lights that are attached to the sides of the walls, floor lights for the floor and table lights on tables and other furniture. Special lights such as emergency and directional lights also belong to the interior lighting.
