Helen Loomes of Trilux will explain the significance of circadian rhythms and their impacts on lighting design theory.
As our understanding of the human biological responses to lighting is increasing and gaining in acceptance, I will recap on the biology of light and its effect on our circadian rhythms. The approach goes beyond our standard way of designing, focusing only on lighting and energy efficiency criteria. It’s mainly about the effect of light on human well-being and health, and biologically effective light is a part of this.
Different applications will use this biological effect to different ends, the two most obvious ones being Education and Healthcare, but there is also the sector of our population who work shifts, subjecting themselves to a very unnatural way of life – can we use our new knowledge to help them?
