HUMAN CENTRIC LIGHTING
To boost circadian rhythms.
Ours is an era when people spend a big part of their day indoors in artificial light. Human centric lighting (HCL) is designed to mimic natural daylight as closely as possible to match the ideal circadian rhythms and thereby improve motivation and productivity, enhance concentration and promote well-being at workplace.
Adjustability of correlated colour temperature (CCT) to suit different tasks and times of day is a major benefit of HCL. While low CCT (warm) light helps users to calm down such as when facing high stress, cooler white light (high CCT) energizes and boosts productivity and creativity.
Here is how HCL works. Imagine you and your children are waking up on a Monday morning. Warm, lower intensity light at sunrise will give your family a soft start to the day while cooler light will help you concentrate at the important meeting later on. Switching back to warm light later in the afternoon is what people normally do because it promotes relaxation. However, if you have to work late today to meet a rapidly approaching deadline, sticking to cooler light longer will help you stay alert and creative. In contrast, a few hours later, with the children in bed and a productive day behind you, it is finally time to enjoy a bit of a me time, perhaps with a book in your lap. Whatever the way you choose to wind down before going to sleep, warm light will help you do just that. And it will take some of the strain off your eyes too.
HCL is commonly used in offices, hospitals, schools, libraries and care homes but is recently also gaining popularity in residential spaces as well as in industrial and agricultural facilities.
