    Key topics and learnings

     

    Daylight is so natural, it is easy to forget just how important it is to humans. The exposure to right level of light during the day, as well as its dynamic cycles are vital to us in many ways. It strongly impacts our mood and energy level, for comfort and quality of sleep, for our health and wellbeing in general.

     

    Traditionally, the workplace lighting design was mainly driven by visual requirements. However, in recent years, science demonstrated that the human brain contains dedicated pathways for ‘non-visual’ or ‘non-image forming’ effects of light, and a third photoreceptor has been identified in the human eye. 

     

    In the modern world humans live more than 90% indoors being exposed to little and inadequate light. More and more employers are searching for the right lighting solutions which are proven to be beneficial for body and mind, and in return for increased productivity, engagement and workplace satisfaction.

     

    Signify created rich and meaningful lighting solutions which bring the benefits of natural light to indoor spaces in order to enhance wellbeing, to create engaging and attractive environments and to reconnect people with the outside world. In this webinar you will learn about the approach, the scientific basis and the lighting solution.
