Thanks to major breakthroughs in our understanding of how light effects our moods, human-centric lighting is the hottest trend in the sector right now.
Human-centric lighting varies the intensity and colour temperature of the light throughout the day to effect occupants biologically.
Already installations in offices, hospitals, care homes, supermarkets and warehouses are delivering benefits in terms of improved wellbeing, higher productivity, increased retail sales and lower absenteeism.
Crucially, the right lighting can set people’s sleep-wake cycle, boosting their sleep quality and improving their performance and concentration.
