Light For Life

We’re instinctively drawn to natural light. But our need for sunlight goes beyond our ability to see or feel its effect on our skin.

Light & You

Ever wonder why you’re more alert when the sun is shining and feel tired when it gets dark?

Light In Your Home

Did you know that the quality and quantity of light you receive throughout the day can have a direct impact on your health?

Dynamic Lighting

Dynamic lighting automatically adjusts throughout the day to help keep your circadian rhythm aligned with the sun’s natural cycle.

Dynamic Lighting

Capture the Power of Circadian Alignment

Our Dynamic Lighting system simulates natural sun patterns indoors to help your body maintain its circadian rhythm, which can improve energy, mood and productivity. Calibrated to your home’s location, the system is programmed to deliver lighting conditions that simulate the light outdoors based on the time of day.

Light For Life

Whether it is sunbathing at the beach, a walk in the park, or a quick coffee break, exposure to sunlight brings you sensations of well-being and happiness. Natural light is not only good for your body it is also necessary for your mind.

Life on earth could not be possible without the sun and the light it produces.

From the beginning of time, the natural cycle of the sun has set the rhythm of life.

Like many animals, humans are programmed to be awake and active when the sun is up and asleep when the sun is down.

As we spend more and more time indoors, our daily access to natural light has become limited

Nowadays, our primary source of light is artificial, but not all light is equal and electric light can have downsides when it comes to our health and well-being.

Light & You

Eyes are not only for seeing.

In the human eye, light is detected by specialised cells that send signals to the region of the brain responsible for vision. But these cells also send signals to the region of the brain that controls our biological clocks and circadian rhythms.

The Circadian Rhythm

The human body is naturally programmed to function on a 24-hour internal clock that matches the solar day.

Known as the circadian rhythm, this clock is synchronized by light and controls many aspects of our physiology, metabolism, and behavior, including our sleep-wake cycle.

Melatonin &  Circadian Rhythm

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the brain that plays an important role in the regulation of our sleep wake-cycle.

Melatonin production naturally starts to increase in the evening, peaks in the middle of the night; and rapidly declines in the morning, allowing us to wake-up.

Exposure to blue light or bright light before bedtime can lead to melatonin suppression, which can delay sleep onset and shorten sleep duration. Inversely, exposure to blue-enriched bright white light in the morning can have an energising effect.

Light & Your Health

In addition to its effect on the sleep-wake cycle, light also affects many other functions of the human body.
  • Alertness

  • Mood

  • Cognition

  • Metabolism

Different lights affect us differently

Light sources can vary in terms of color, from warm (orange) to cool (blue), and in terms of intensity, from dim to bright. Lights of different colors and intensities will result in different responses from the brain.

Exposure to electric (static) lights can disrupt our natural circadian rhythms, which can directly affect our health and well-being.
