Light for people

Human Centric Lighting

Light has many facets that need to be considered when designing future-capable lighting solutions. At TRILUX we adopt a concise approach – we place people with their specific needs at the centre. For us this consistent targeting of the solution to the user is the fundamental basis of good light.

A Human Centric Lighting solution is always based on a professionally planned lighting concept where all components are precisely matched to the requirements of the client and the specific application. This enables highly performative, customised systems that optimally support people in their range of tasks. According to its brand promise of Simplify Your Light, TRILUX ensures that using such solutions is as simple as possible.

Office

Motivated, highly capable and healthy employees are the key to the success of a company. This means the main objective of any employer must be to create best-possible conditions for working. However, the necessity of a professionally designed lighting system for healthy places of work is frequently neglected, and the legislatively specified illuminance of 500 lux is simply not sufficient for older employees. Human Centric Lighting solutions from TRILUX focus on people and their needs and promote well-being, productivity and relaxation – for healthy work in offices.

Education

In the educational sector, modified sleep / waking rhythms often exist which are a challenge for pupils and  adolescents. Supporting the circadian rhythm enables levels of attention and concentration during work to be increased and error rates reduced.

Industry

Avoiding mistakes and achieving occupational safety are particularly important topics in everyday industry. Shift-based work for example leads to an impaired sleep / waking rhythm and prevents necessary recovery.  An insufficient lighting level also has its downsides that negatively affect work safety. Human Centric Lighting provides help in such areas.

Retail

Designing shopping areas is active sales promotion and the right lighting essentially contributes to this. Suitable lighting solutions arouse curiosity, remove threshold fears, increase dwell times and inspire. In short, they lay the foundations for successful selling.  

Health & Care

Good light in the health sector must provide more than just optimum visual conditions complying with appropriate standards. Light colour and lighting intensity for example influence mood, wellbeing and the capability to perform. The biological rhythm of people can also be strengthened by modifying the light colour and intensity of lighting to the natural course of daylight. This can even be implemented automatically with intelligent light control.

FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE: TRILUX research projects 

User-friendly applications pave the way for people to benefit from the latest findings in lighting research. As a consequence, TRILUX conducts research in the form of various practical projects analysing the opportunities circadian lighting design has to offer.

Placar project

Important fundamentals were laid in 2006 with the Placar project. Together with the Charité Berlin and other  partners, TRILUX is analysing how circadian light influences people. For this purpose, light spectra were defined and generated in brightness, colour rendering and circadian effect. TRILUX designed a lighting system that ergo-nomically distributes light without glare for optimum effectiveness.

OLIVE associative research project

Utilising light for the well-being of people is also the aim of OLIVE, short for „optimised light systems for improving performance capability and health“. OLIVE brings together the visual and non-visual effect of light with intelligent control and implements this into specific applications. The lighting systems adapt light to the ingress of daylight and time of the day and therefore the circadian rhythm. This form of intelligent lighting is controlled via sensors and gestures. TRILUX uses LEDs as the light sources. These enable almost unlimited electronic control options and thanks to their compact dimensions, can be integrated into any applications.

Felix Blatter Hospital project

The Felix Blatter Hospital project is dedicated to the comparability of circadian lighting solutions. The project  analyses circadian effects, user-friendliness and procurement and operating costs and is therefore highly useful to lighting designers and construction authorities. As part of the project, rooms on a geriatrics ward were equipped with various circadian lighting systems and these were tested for their photometric properties. A qualitative survey of care personnel concerning user-friendliness supplements the measurements. The results provide comparability that support lighting designers when recommending suitable circadian systems.
