As textiles belong to the most radiation-sensitive objects, the permitted level of illumination on exhibits is limited to only 50lx. For still drawing attention to the detailed samples, the perceived brightness of the surroundings must be even darker, without causing an atmosphere of darkness and insecurity. Another challenge of illuminating textiles in a museum is the fact that all exhibits are presented in glass cabinets, creating a wide range of reflecting surfaces that serve as sources of disturbance. Light reflexions and reflexions of bright objects would superimpose the illumination of the exhibits.

Visual comfort, atmosphere and the experiential value of the space have first priority, not the efficiency of the luminaires. Most of the used luminaires are custom-made, constructed in a way that their beam angles are geared to the geometry of the glass cabinets. Additionally, the intrinsic impact of the luminaires on viewers is strongly reduced, making the luminaires appear as invisible as possible. All unnecessary information is eliminated, drawing the visitor’s attention to the essential.
