Since the origin of life, the light has guided us, our activities and our biological clock. We feel the best in the natural light outdoors, where intensity and color changes all the time. With dynamic light we can create better lighting with people in focus.

Lighting affects how we see our surroundings. Dynamic lighting for the future houses goes further, affecting impacting how we think and feel too.

The fact that blue light activate and warm light calms, in increasing substantiated, it is all about imitating the natural light and its variation that has controlled our biological clock since the origin of life.

Where do we apply solutions with color temperature control? The answer is: in any room with limited access to daylight or rooms where for any other reason want to be able to vary the color temperature.

Our preference for color temperature isn’t static, sometimes we want a cold, activating light, sometimes warm, relaxing light.

The biological clock, also called the circadian rhythm and plays an important role in regulating wakefulness and sleep. If we can help that clock, we can help people feel better. By designing good lighting systems, lighting can help increase concentration and motivation and to improve subjective and objective well-being.

The ideal is simply to imitate natural light, both in level and color during the day. Cold, intense light with a high blue is activating, warm dimmed light is relaxing.

Why daylight also inside the house? Lighting in home and work environment has the past decades been monotonously warm, yellowish and not showing colors correctly. A question arises: why? You have to try it to believe. We recommend you to test before moving to daylight because of the big difference from traditional lighting. Lighting and colors are a big part of the whole of living. They have an affect on functionality and comfort but also on atmosphere.

In the evening light could be warm-toned, ”more ambient” light, especially if light is not needed e.g. for reading. Finally you can turn off the lamps and light candles. Many people become so fond of daylight type light, that they want to have it all day long, also in the evening.

Our preference for colour temperature isn’t static, sometimes we want a cold, activating light, others a warm relaxing one. Our preferences for light can also differ with age; the young are inclined towards a colder light while as we get older this changes to warm.

Lighting with modern led tubes is not expensive. This is because no luminaire is needed. Only lamp holder and wire to each end of the tube. The wire will be connected to 230 V and no ballasts are needed.

Here are some examples of different rooms, where led tubes could be used.

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a kitchen hood is to get enough light on the stove. The lamp should not glare from the stove, which is normal with led or halogen spots. Better solution is led tubes, 600 mm.

Stairs

Just get one wooden panel away and put opal plastic (3mm, 72 %) instead of it. And led tubes in 5 cm distance of the plastic panel. No other light is needed in the whole room.
