Does light really have the power to make the ingredient and the meals more delicious?

In this workshop, we used two different lights with different qualities to shooting on the different kinds of ingredients with different colors. After that, we used the same lights to apply to the cold and the hot meals. The participants of this workshop include people from lighting and non-lighting industries, so we had a chance to hear about the opinions from people who don't belong to the lighting industry. According to the mood, the physical condition and the needs of the viewer and the location, the requirements of the light are different, too.
We invited one lighting specialist, Mr. Kumikawa, the representative of SORAA Japan and one food specialist Ms. Kata, the representative of +sachi studio to join our discussion. Together with the director of Worktecht, the lighting designer, Mr. Kaneda, we had an interesting workshop with many different points of views to the lighting.

History of Decorative Lighting

Before the incandescent ball has been created, the lighting fixture has existed. Sometimes it is only for the functional usages, but sometimes it is the signature for the power or as an element of the architecture itself. The lighting fixture in the different countries has its own historical background and story, therefore nowadays there is various lighting style. We learned about it and we were trying to be closer to it. WorkshopInfo1< WorkshopInfo2
