Glamox said: “Human-centric lighting, in the form of tuneable luminaires, controlled by a computer/tablet-based light management system or control panel, enables the right lumen level and spectrum of light to be delivered during the day to best suit people’s circadian rhythms. It can help patients in hospitals to sleep better and recover faster, shift workers to combat fatigue, and school pupils to improve their concentration.
Nina Hol, Chief Marketing & Communications officer for Glamox, said: “We want to lift the lid on the vast potential of our Human-Centric Lighting to improve health, well-being, and productivity. As people return to offices, they want their work environment to positively support their overall well-being, and doing this can give employers a distinct advantage. A happy workforce tends to be a more productive workforce. Studies have proven that the right light can help improve task accuracy levels by 12 per cent, with 78 percent of employees feeling happier.
“This tour is designed to open the possibilities for lighting professionals and end-users to really get to grips with human-centric lighting and receive guidance from experts on what can be done and how best to do it. As Scandinavians, we understand the psychological and physiological application of light better than most.”
To date, Glamox says it has implemented over 200 human-centric lighting projects across Europe, mainly in Scandinavia, in settings including healthcare facilities, universities, offices, and industry.
