Why should I choose Domus Lighting?

Domus prides itself on its energy-efficient lighting, but its designs are equally nature inspired. Its lighting portfolio – including table lamps, floor lamps, ceiling lamps, pendants, and wall lamps – is primarily made of wood and metal, and aspects of minimalism guide its designs.

The company uses as little synthetic material in its manufacturing process to limit pollution and uses locally sourced materials to limit its carbon footprint. No varnishes are used in Domus lighting: the company uses environmentally friendly vegetable dyes instead.

Domus is one of the first Australian LED lighting brands to fully embrace the concept of sustainable manufacture at all points during the manufacturing process. Add to this its chic design aesthetic, and Domus is the perfect option for those looking for LED lighting that is stylish, energy-efficient, and environmentally conscious.

LED Lighting Basics

Purchasing LED lighting is a bit different from traditional lights. LEDs are more energy efficient than traditional lights. Therefore, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind when you buy.

  • Lumens, Not Watts

    We’re used to judging how bright a light is by its wattage: commonly used household lighting uses 25, 40, 60, 75, and in some cases, 100-watt bulbs. LED lighting is much more efficient: a 2-watt LED bulb uses the same power as a 25w standard bulb. LED lighting manufacturers use lumens instead to describe brightness. An 800-lumen LED bulb will produce the same amount of light as a 60-watt standard bulb and is great for general use applications throughout the home. For more subtle lighting, opt for under 800 lumens, and over for brighter lighting.

  • Colour Temperature

    You may have seen the terms “warm” and “cool” on the bulbs you have bought. This is called colour temperature and is measured in Kelvin (K). “Warm” whites have a temperature of 2700-3500K, and a yellow or orange tint similar to light at sunrise or sunset. “Cool” whites have a temperature over 3500K and a neutral appearance, often with a slightly bluish tint.

  • Beam Angle

    Beam angle refers to how concentrated a beam of light is. A narrow beam angle (15-45°) is best for accent or highlight lighting, while wider beam angles are better for general usage.

  • IP Rating

    If you are installing your lighting in an area exposed to dust, moisture, or liquids, the IP rating – how water-resistant or waterproof an object is – will be critical. The rating consists of two digits, the first, how dustproof the object is, and the second, how waterproof it is, with 69 the maximum rating. For general lighting, however, IP 44 is most common, with a rating of at least IP 65 or higher for outdoor uses.
