In every room there is no traditional large ceiling lamp or chandelier, because the ambient light not only wastes too much energy, but at the same time makes people feel uncomfortable.When you wake up or sleep, when you turn on the light, your first reaction is to cover your eyes with your hand. our bedrooms don't have that kind of basic lighting. Instead, they're all fitted with wall lights," said Qu Chen, project manager for the Beijing Winter Olympics Olympic Village.
