It’s amazing to think that even though we spend two-thirds of our time living
under artificial lighting, we’re not paying attention to the consequences for our
body and mind. Whereas people are concerned about organic food, pure water
and clean air, the element by which our very life came into existence – light – is
often forgotten.
I have promoted the use of daylight simulating light in Finland for over 30 years
already. Today more and more houses and also work places are completely lighted
with full spectrum daylight lamps.
Because we see better in daylight lighting, our eyes are less tired and the colours of
the furnishings are real. My studies in medicine, psychology, pedagogy and public              health have helped a lot in the promotion of full spectrum daylight, which also has            significant health effects.
This method of lighting further saves energy. As no incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lamps are used, only LED lamps, it positively addresses the effects of climate change.

This is the most interesting daylight product presented in this book, a daylight robot.
