Abstract
There are great risks of a multitude of injuries due to poor light at construction sites. This leads ultimately to costly counteractions from society. The goal of this project was to put construction workers’ situation in the spotlight by giving construction sites better vision ergonomics through providing enough, even and glare-free light. With the GARO Ball luminaire as benchmark I designed a luminaire with hooks and loops out of steel wire and a shape which asks the builder to model the light according to needs. To dim the light there is new technology in other fields which enables an easy way to smart construction sight lighting. Better placements of the luminaire and the possibility to dim the light created better vision conditions at... (More)

To dim the light there is new technology in other fields which enables an easy way to smart construction sight lighting. Better placements of the luminaire and the possibility to dim the light created better vision conditions at indoor construction sites. The project involved external expertise and guidance as well as interviews and user tests. The result was measured in an experiment which proved it to reduce contrasts in the environment up to three times compared with the GARO Ball. (Less)
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Det finns stora risker för en mängd olyckor på grund av dålig belysning på byggarbetsplatser. Den vanligaste typen av byggbelysning är inte anpassad för sekundära användningsområden vilket orsakar bländning och långsamt arbetsflöde. Genom att undersöka ljusets spridning kunde jag designa en belysningsarmatur som effektivt sprider ljuset upp i taket och på så sätt skapar ett bra allmänljus. Formen möjliggör nya sätt att placera byggbelysning på arbetsplatsen och omöjliggör belysningens minst gynnsamma placering, upprätt på golvet.
