LED Lights, LED Linear bar lights - Bayshore Underpass upgraded complete.

All for LED Lights in the Bayshore underpass in Singapore. From our knowledge, an underpass project is awarded by our Singapore Land Transport Authority ("LTA").

This project is surely worth mentioning in relation to its LED lighting adoption. And that is because;
1. A LTA underpass project that completely uses LED lightings for the entire lighting system,
2. The design of the adopted LED Linear bar light is both aesthetic and slim,
3. Using of clear optical lens showing the LEDs directly to pedastrians.

We would like to commend how far our Singapore society had advanced from 5 years ago in terms of LED lightings. At first, most agencies were skeptical with LED lights with its much higher costs compared to traditional lighting. When LED lights are increasing being adopted, there is a fear of the LED lights being too glaring and might cause safety issues to pedastrians or road users.

Now in this underpass, we see LED linear bar lights having expose LED lights through a clear optical lens. The breakthrough in mindset of having expose LED lights rather than hiding the LEDs behind some frosted diffuser helps to enhance the areas' lux level. It also shows how comfortable we have become with the nature of LED lights and fixtures.

IASPL top 5 picks for Dec 15 (Blue theme)


By far the most popular colour group; blue is one of the most versatile colours that in its darkest hues is dramatic and the lightest tone being light-hearted / airy.

By creatively adding different mix of paint, we can achieve other hues to create stunning teals, turquoises, dusty bluish grays and more.

Blue is traditional and vintage in its darker tones. Contrasting it with hints of gold makes the whole environment posh and grand.

On the other end of the spectrum, we can easyily add white to a standard blue paint to achieve the different shades of light blue required. Light blue gives a breezy feeling and brighten up rooms.  Lighter tones also have calming effects, thus it is perfect for a space to retreat and relax.

Of course, every home is different. With the selected lighting fixture and furnishings, it can affect the look of a paint colour. Here are some great examples for your consideration to start if you were thinking of adding a splash of blue hue to a wall or furniture piece.

LED Lights, lightings, illumination, sparkle and flame

Lights has been one of the most important enabler for human race to progress and develop ourselves. Lighting is beyond security, livelihoods, giving directions and many more. Silent in itself, it has allow the world to progress in every little way possible.

From the arts to technology, from the most basic of human needs to the most ambitious of human minds can conjure - Lighting has been an integral element in all these processes.

Lightings created by nature, e.g. shooting stars darting across the skies, Aurora Boreali, has inspired both fear awe and respect in us of the world we are in.

Famous artists uses different shades of lightings in their masterpieces to present various impressions. All of which to induce our eyes and minds to think beyond the physical image.

The backlit OLED or light source for our computer screens made us see things in the smallest and most detailed way. From games to work software like autocad or building information modelling systems.

Much of our world would be stuck in an analog or even ancient age without the advancement of lighting technologies.

Things like the following will be non existential;
1. Light indicator - for mobile electronic gadgets or 'pick to light' inventory system,
2. Smart technology - Street lamps or lighting systems linking to control data centres,
3. OLED technology - electronic visual display

For today, let us celebrate the upcoming christmas season with great pictures taken by dedicated photographers. LED lights or not, it is the passion within hearts and minds that materialises things!

IASPL top 5 picks for Nov 15 (Grey theme)

"GREY !! Come on, how can this be funky or exciting? It is a colour for convenience at best." - This is a common perception received from our fact finding.

Nonetheless, grey is the latest new neutral colour since 2014. It has recently taken the spotlight, upstaging it’s most neutral and common cousins; taupe, beige and ivory.

The neutrality of which is the core element why most designers like to work with this colour. We are intrigued to discover that different shades of grey allows easy manipulation between 'hot' and 'cold' neutral. Not sure whats hot or cold? (Imagine the feeling each gives you; Warm lighting 2700K or Daylight 6000-6500K)

This is the new must have essential colour that’s modern and edgy yet timeless and classic.  Grey is becoming the ultimate neutral because it looks good with almost any colour. Classic Grey is a modern neutral that creates a light, airy feeling, yet adding more warmth to a room than basic white.
Grey has proven itself as the perfect backdrop ranging from classic to modern to contemporary.

Grey might make a room slightly dimmer or dark. One can place a mirror adjacent to the windows to maximise the inflow of natural light. This adds life and energy to a room!


Also, be sure to have more than one overhead light in your space, two sources or more will be suffice to light up your space. It is getting popular in Europe and Asia where many people enhance indoor lighting with sconces. Choosing a proportionately sized lamp and placing it well is key to good illumination. 

This shadow coloured hue is a colour that really benefits from being well lit.
