Biodynamic lighting

Developed for optimal concentration while working

Biodynamic lighting in a workspace mimics natural light patterns, making employees feel more in tune with their biological rhythms. It increases alertness and concentration during the day and promotes relaxation during evening hours. Does your workspace need biodynamic lighting? Then read on or contact CREON.

What is biodynamic lighting?

Biodynamic lighting is often seen in workplaces where shift work is more the rule than the exception. This kind of work often has a major impact on sleep-wake rhythms, and biodynamic LED lighting can significantly reduce this impact. The aim of biodynamic light is to mimic daylight from outside, inside, as much as possible.

Create a healthy working environment

In the world of control rooms, people frequently work in shifts, which takes its toll on natural sleep-wake rhythms. Consider the feeling of constant jet lag and the tendency towards unhealthy habits such as snacking and excessive coffee consumption.

Indirect LED lighting bounces light via ceiling and walls in such a way that it reaches your workplace without shadows or glare. The result? A feeling of natural light similar to the sky outside.

Biodynamic lighting plays a key role for control roommates starting in the evening. It offers them the same light stimulation as someone working during the day. Wearing glasses that filter blue daylight after the shift eases the transition from work to rest, making it easier to fall asleep at home.

How do different light colours affect our bodies?

When we step outside in the morning and face the light for the first time in the day, it has a blue undertone. This light colour triggers the body to produce the stress hormone cortisol. This trigger is a signal to the body that the day has now really started.

As the day progresses, the light changes accordingly. Evening light has red colour tones and if you have produced enough cortisol in the morning, your body produces the sleep hormone melatonin in the evening. When different light colours are exposed to our bodies at the wrong times, light has adverse effects.

Exposure to blue light in the evening suppresses melatonin production. This leads to sleep problems and chronic fatigue. Red light is often associated with the setting of the sun and approaching evening. In a natural environment, this type of light helps prepare the body for night and sleep by promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.

If one is exposed to red light in the morning, especially immediately after waking up, it has potential disadvantages for the body. Alertness is reduced and it potentially affects mood.

The benefits of dynamic lighting

Creates more focus

One of the biggest advantages of biodynamic lighting is its ability to direct our attention. Biodynamic lighting is an automatically controlled lighting programme tied to a fixed system. This is particularly useful in 24-hour working environments such as control rooms and control rooms where people work in shifts. In these working environments, it is very important to remain continuously focused. The light can be adjusted to the specific task, resulting in increased concentration and productivity.

Improves memory

Several studies have shown that the right lighting conditions contribute to improved memory. Because biodynamic lighting automatically adjusts to our biological clock, you are optimally able to process and store information. This is especially useful during 24-hour shift work.

Stimulates our biological clock

Our body has a natural clock, known as the circadian rhythm, which regulates our sleep-wake cycle. Light plays an important role in this process. By using biodynamic lighting that changes throughout the day – bright and cool light during the morning and warmer light in the evening – we can support our biological clock. This leads not only to better sleep quality, but also to an overall sense of well-being and reduced fatigue during the day.

Draw up a lighting plan with us!

Is your current lighting not meeting your employees’ needs and requirements? Then it’s time for a lighting plan. With this plan, you will get the most out of your space and work towards maximum productivity. Our experts will draw up a sketch and explain where our biodynamic lighting will make a difference. Once the design is approved, production and assembly follow. We ensure that every lamp, socket and dimmer is perfectly placed for optimal results.
