(Re-)Connecting with Nature
In order to offer the Right Light in Time, Right Light for Task and Right Light for You we take the ingredients of natural light. With our Active Light we offer a holistic lighting ecosystem to bring the benefits of natural light indoors.
Every day, we encounter a huge variety of visual stimuli in the office. Perfect light is just as essential for handling the respective work task as is our health, motivation and productivity. Light influences various vital processes in many ways – and accordingly also our physical and mental wellbeing.
Zumtobel pioneered in collaboration with Gruppe Nymphenburg Consult in looking deep into the impact of what light can do on people in an working environment, measuring objectively implicit processes in the body. In short, quantifying emotions. The study confirmed that the Active Light Solution with tunableWhite and higher lux levels results in a strong decline of stress levels, in a sharp increase of the concentration ability and in a heightening of the overall wellbeing.
Human Centric Lighting is the inclusion of visual and non-visual (biological) needs of humans in the design of lighting applications. The ATKearney study aimed at delivering arguments for the use of human centric lighting. In most segments, benefits for owners and investors dominate, however, additional social and public benefits can also justify Human Centric Lighting markups.
The Area Control Centre of the Vorarlberg State Police Headquarters operates around the clock. The implementation of a modern lighting solution to test a dynamic lighting concept had the aim of making the night shift more comfortable for the members of staff. UCT Research, an interdisciplinary research center for user centered technologies at the FHV technical college in Vorarlberg, had the task of programming various lighting scenarios and then evaluating these as part of a pilot study.
The aim of the user study initiated by Zumtobel and implemented in cooperation with Fraunhofer IAO, is to describe the current lighting situation in offices. The results of this study show the potential of user-oriented and application-based lighting in offices. Individually controllable light that focuses on the users, increases their wellbeing and promotes their health.
