Light not only allows us to see and navigate our surroundings, it also helps us feel good and function better. The lighting industry is working to deliver the added value of lighting and in these pages we explain how we can all benefit from better lighting in our daily lives.
It also affects our alertness, cognitive performance, emotions and sleep/wake cycle. This is why we need bright white light that mimics sunlight to be active during the day and darkness to get a good night’s sleep.
Modern lighting concepts make working easier: good lighting increases concentration, reduces fatigue and is bright enough for all visual tasks, including tasks performed by aging employees.
