Light gives life and soul to architectures,Compared with other architectural materials, it is the part that presents the most visual quality, like space design, texture and so on.

Using lighting design to construct a free, flexible and imaginative temperament space is like a kind of magical –“the space magic”, which can not only bring basic lighting effects, but also show great artistic appeal.

Among the various lighting designs that are popular nowadays, the appearance frequency of strip light is undoubtedly the highest. The flex strips can weaken their own sense of existence through hiding forms, gradually arranging along the corresponding space outline, and form a unique geometric or curved shape together with the wall. When it is necessary to provide lighting functions, the light strip can instantly ignite the atmosphere of the entire space, grabbing people’s visual focus, and creating a light, agile and exquisite space context.

people say that every building has two lives, one in the daytime and one in the night. The architectural life at night depends on the perfect lighting effect to display. Buried light strips on the top and bottom of the wall can not only illuminate, but also have the function of washing the wall and adding a sense of modernity to the space.

Light wall washing, as a design concept, was first created by two design masters, Richard Kelly and Philip Johnson

It refers to the use of multiple hidden light sources to form a group of floodlights to evenly illuminate the wall. “Let the light wash over the wall like water”, thus greatly improving the aesthetics of the space.

In the minimalist space, the pre-embedded cob strip light, in every corner, endow space with breathtaking layered beauty, makes a bright space brighter, has the magic power of guiding sight and awakening emotions,eventurlly.

Next, let’s explore the light philosophy (three principles of light-Focal Glow, Ambient Luminescence and Sparkling of Brilliants ) of Richard Kelly, the father of modern lighting design, and to see how he uses the “weapon” of light to create Space of infinite fantasy for us.

1.Focal Glow

needs to highlight the key parts of the lighting to instantly attract the viewer’s visual focus. Such as: the center of the stage, the product display area for sales or display, the corridor passage of the hotel, the safety exit…

Installation of the IP65 10X10 neon flex on the stairs, not only brings a sense of security, by lighting up the space, but also makes this area more layered, and giving the beauty of the rhythm of the stairs.

2.Ambient Luminescence

The concept of ambient lighting is relatively abstract. It means that the environment does not emit light directly, but generates a kind of “shadowless lighting” through the rendering of different forms of light effects. It’s like the twilight in the morning after snow, the sky dyed red by the setting sun…

3.Sparkling of Brilliants

The sparkling brilliants has a dynamic aesthetic feeling, bringing more shocking vitality to the space. It is like a ray of light entering the space through the window, making the interior space float in the hazy light and shadow.

  1. flexible strip for ceiling

Remove the main light and change it to a recessed light, set up a light strip in the ceiling, use the light strip design with its own suspension effect, combine with downlights, spotlights, etc. to enrich the top surface, make the space have a sense of hierarchy, and form a soft, Bright, full and moody ambiance.If a light strip is set at the junction of different functional areas, it can also divide the space and complete the transition, and present a comfortable and harmonious lighting environment through dramatic light and dark contrast.

The application of ​​the light strip is very wide, it can be matched with decorative paintings, soft bags, bathroom mirrors, uneven background walls, etc., to draw out a strong artistic atmosphere. For example, the background walls of the living room and bedroom, walls such as stairs and aisles, can be designed with a combination of light strips and space, which can render an elegant and restrained temperament.

3. COB Strip light for cabinets

The design of the light strips in the shelves, large wardrobes, and kitchen wall cabinets,  is soft and not glaring, which can greatly improve the basic lighting in dark cabinets. When opening the cabinet, there will be no visual gap due to the darkness inside the cabinet.

Guide on cutting, wiring and installing of flexible LED strip lights

When purchasing luminaires, many friends will have difficulty while choosing, because there are various LED lamps on the market now . Flexible LED strip light, most friends should have heard of it, as it is useful for so many places, then do you know how to cut, install your flexible strip light? What is the difference connecting and installation flexible LED strip compared with ordinary lamps? Now, if you don’t know, we will show you the answers.

First, LED flexible strip light installation method

1, how to choose the power supply for LED flexible strip light

The LED flexible strip light typically working voltage is DC 12V, so it is necessary to use a DC power supply to power on, the size of the power supply should calculated based on the length and power of the LED flexible strip light. You can also purchase a large power DC power supply as a center power supply, and all LED flexible strips are connected in parallel, and then powered by the center DC power supply.

2, how to deal with LED flexible strip light self-adhesive tape

Behind each flexible LED strip light there is a 3M double-sided self-adhesive tape, you can directly tear it off, then secure the flexible LED strip in the installation position, and close it with your hand.

3, use power amplifier for LED flexible strip light

If the connection distance of the LED flexible strip is longer, the controller can not control such long distance, you need to use the power amplifier.

4, how to cut the LED flexible strip light

Cut the LED flexible strip light at any length, The circuit structure of LED flexible strip light is composed of three LEDs as a set of skewers, and every 3 LED chips can be welded or cut at will.

5, LED flexible strip light controller

If it is an LED color changing light strip and RGB strip light, you need to use a controller to achieve color change effect, monochrome LED strip light does not need the controller. The control distance of each controller is different. Generally, the control distance of the general controller is 10-15 meters, the control distance of the remote controller is 15-20 meters, and the maximum control distance can be as long as 30 meters.

6, Fix LED flexible strip light

If you install LED flexible strip light outdoors, it is easy to be affected by the outside environment. After time goes by, 3M adhesive decreases will cause the LED strip to fall off, it is better to fix with a card slot. The places where you need to connect and cut, adopt the same installation method as indoor environment, you only need to separately equip the waterproof glue to enhance the waterproof effect of the connection point.

Second, the wiring method of the LED flexible strip light

The LED flexible strip light working voltage typically can be divided into three types: AC220V, DC12V, DC24V, DC36V 48V and customized so you need to select a suitable power supply, the size of the power supply is determined according to the power and connection length of the LED strip. DC24V and DC12V powered SMD2835 and cob LED flexible strip light wiring method as below:

The black power cord comes with the LED flexible strip light usually means the negative pole “-“, the red line represents the positive pole “+”, directly plugging these wires to the power supply, the black line is connected to the negative electrode of power supply ” – “, red color line is connected to the positive” + “of the power supply.

Third, cautions when installing the LED flexible strip lights

1, the AC220V powered led strip light connect directly to the grid power.

RGB colorful LED light strips need to use a controller to achieve a change effect, generally use 4 lines to distinguish red, black, green, and blue. Colorful LED light strips are generally use the same positive pole, that is, one line of the LED light strip is a positive pole “+”, and other red green blue interfaces or power cords means the negative pole “-“, RGB line connect to corresponding line or pole. Then, another brown line represents the positive electrode “+” connect to “V +” pole of the power supply, the blue line represents “-” connect to “G” (also “-“) pole of the power supply .

2, do not connect DC12V and DC24V powered LED flexible strip light to the AC220V power source, otherwise the LED chip of LED flexible strip light will all burn out.

3, DC12V powered LED light strips should not connect to the DC24V power supply too; otherwise the output power will be more than double, and it is easy to burn the LED chip.

4, pay attention to the connection distance of the LED flexible strip light

In general, the longest connection distance of SMD3528 LED flexible strip light is 20 meters, while for the SMD5050 LED flexible strip light, the longest connection distance is 15 meters. If this connection distance is exceeded, the LED light strip is easy to heat, which will affect the service life of the LED strip.
