My parents taught me to enjoy reading from a very young age. Every night they sat on my bed and took turns to tell me stories, describing and explaining every detail with patience and enthusiasm. I still remember the feeling of protection I had when they tucked me in before they began to read, as if it were yesterday.

I wouldn’t miss a night without a story. The illustrations in the books made my imagination soar, and I looked forward to that moment of the day. I went to sleep ready to dream about the adventures, hoping for the characters to come to life and for me to become one of them.

Reading spaces

An ideal reading environment is a cosy, intimate and well-lit space, a place to relax, read without effort and away from interruptions. As it is an activity that is not limited to a particular space, we can choose different locations.

The lighting is very personal, as each reader needs to adapt it to their taste for the experience to be interesting and inspiring. The combination of accent lighting with other systems is ideal for creating contrasts, combinations of gradients and nuances, thereby fostering a suitable atmosphere.

As a teenager I swapped tales of fantasy for comics. I treasured my collections; they were shared and discussed among classmates, and we all devoured graphic novels. At night, when it was time to turn off the lights and go to sleep I couldn’t stop reading. The energy and pleasure I felt made up for the lack of sleep and my mother’s reprimands.

Moving on to teenage novels was instinctive, and I discovered parallel worlds that allowed me to enter into the lives of the characters, their concerns and dreams, and my identification with some of them helped me to understand the world around me better.

Living rooms for reading

The living room is one of the favourite places for reading since it is usually a spacious, homogeneous and comfortable space where most of the life of a home takes place, whether it be as a meeting point, or for rest and recreation, but which may also become a library where you can relax and enjoy a good book.

In these spaces the general lighting and the creation of environments will be complemented by the accent lighting concept that allows an adaptation to the specific needs of each activity in the space, allowing the light necessary to illuminate a book or a device to be adjusted through floor or table lamps, either next to the favourite armchair and the corner table, or the sofa near the window, ideal for enjoying a drink.

At university I had to combine reading for pleasure with reading textbooks. In the end it was not as boring as I had expected, and I liked to read about the subjects that interested me and that would end up becoming part of my work identity. I was a bookworm: I read in the library, walking around the city dodging obstacles, even in the underground, although I sometimes missed my station because I was engrossed in the plot.

Now I have the habit of leaving books I have started in my favourite reading places, near that sofa that has memorised the shape of my body, on the desk in the study where I spend hours working, and in the bedroom where a pile of books makes an improvised bedside table.

Concentrating on reading

When we read, our ability to discern details within our field of vision becomes sharper, creating a contrast between the content and the surroundings. The mind identifies postures in certain environments and gives rise to the formation of habits. Something that we must keep in mind is that there is no right or wrong light to read by, since each person is unique, but it must be modelled so that it invites us to sit and read.

In dealing with the study area, by providing direct light in the work area we create an atmosphere conducive to concentration, meeting the specific requirements for activities such as reading, studying or using electronic devices, emphasising the functional qualities of the space and providing flexibility in its use.

Sometimes I feel like a hoarder, and that one day I will not be able to get into my home for so many books, but I can’t help it. I love to visit my favourite bookshops; when entering them, my senses are sharpened by the smell of new books, the universe of typefaces to be seen in titles suggestive of their content, the visual impact of the covers, and the slow and stimulating search for possible works to take home with me.

I can’t stop enjoying my moments of reading, quality time dedicated to myself, devouring words to reach the end of the story yet at the same time hoping it will never end. For me, books are objects which are easy to pick up and hard to put down.

Bedrooms tend to be versatile spaces in which the lighting needs to be customised according to all the activities carried out, alone or accompanied, so the combination of systems and lamps will be indispensable to create all the possible atmospheres.

As far as reading in the bedroom is concerned, the ideal is accent lighting with a narrow beam, to deliver light directly on the document, and so avoiding light spill in order not to disturb another person if sharing a room.

The use of wall lamps provides the opportunity to direct the light onto the reading surface, but we can also opt for table lamps for bedside tables that have the ability to deliver light to where it is needed, providing a relaxing suitable visual balance.

I am a digital citizen, and enjoy the technology with which I have grown up, which has transformed the world we live in, and take advantage of it in all its aspects, both professionally and personally, but books as objects continue to seduce me.

The beauty of a book lies its simplicity, because to enjoy it you need nothing more than the act of opening it and releasing the cadence of an inspiring turning of pages that transports you towards ideas, knowledge, culture, refuge, stories, characters, and emotion; this is a timeless and lasting offer.

Book culture

Reading has different facets through which we enjoy and learn. In the spaces dedicated to this activity we must study well how we set up the lighting, helping to avoid fatigue and generating positive stimuli to create a cosy environment, comfort and relaxation, encouraging us to spend time achieving a visual and psychological well-being.

For book lovers, the environment and customised lighting will provide the ideal atmosphere to indulge their passion for books.

Reading means being transported to different places and times through the imagination. Reading is also learning, a way of cultivating the mind through the exchange of information and the interpretation of ideas.
