Light and Us: an inspirational exploration of our evolution under Light, Biophilic and WELL Design


   Many of our built environments have created unnatural conditions for their occupants. Research has shown that poor illumination, of the spaces we occupy, can contribute to the disruption of our natural cycles. With the advent of Solid-State Lighting (LED) and “nature emulating design” we can transform the environments that we occupy. This sessions explores ways of applying “Circadian Balanced Illumination™, Biophilic Design and WELL Building lighting principles to invigorate the human condition and benefit our cognition, health and wellbeing.
