Understanding Color Temperature of LED lighting

RBW

Many of our customers are now familiar with the idea of a "warm" white or a "cool" white being offered by fluorescent and other light bulbs. LED light sources are based on the Kelvin system of measure. A warm color temperature is typically 3,000K or less. A "cool" white bulb commonly has a color temperature of 4,000K and higher on the Kelvin scale. Most of our fixtures range from 3000K-2500K, which provides a good source of warm light for home or office use. Below is a basic scale that gives a good indication of the range offered by LED sources.

Designers in Ukraine: A conversation with Maksym Iuriichuk of Sivak+Partners

As designers, humans, parents and children, our empathy and compassion goes to the people of Ukraine and all others afflicted by the ongoing war and crisis. We believe there can be no design without democracy.  We were recently contacted by Maksym Iuriichuk, Co-owner and Chief Designer of Sivak+Partners based in Odesa and Kyiv, and we invited him to share his experience as a Ukrainian designer through an emailed conversation with RBW's Director of Growth, Alex Williams.
