Introducing Biophilic Lighting

What Is Biophilic Lighting?
Biophilic lighting is a type of lighting that integrates natural plants with lights. The goal is to create a harmonious and healthier environment that connects people to nature and promotes overall well-being. This type of lighting is inspired by nature’s harmony, bringing the serenity of nature indoors through biophilic lights.

Biophilic lighting is based on the idea of biophilia, (a human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature) being incorporated with lighting. The word biophilia originates from the Greek, ‘philia’ meaning ‘love of’. It literally means a love of life or living things. Humans have a deeply engrained love of nature which is an intuitive and natural drive imprinted into our DNA.

Another aspect of biophilic lighting is the synchronization with our natural rhythms, particularly our circadian rhythms. Biophilic lighting seeks to address this by incorporating lighting solutions that mimic the dynamic qualities of natural light throughout the day. This may include changes in color temperature and intensity of light to align with the patterns of natural daylight.

Dynamic lighting effects are another hallmark of biophilic lighting. With the transitions from bright to dim, biophilic lighting created an immersive and ever-changing environment. These dynamic effects evoke a sense of movement, depth, and connection to the natural world, stimulating our senses and fostering a greater sense of engagement with our surroundings.

Benefits Of Biophilic Lighting
Biophilic lighting can provide many benefits that have a significant impact on our well-being and overall quality of life and happiness, that is in addition to its aesthetic appeal. Research has found that exposure to nature can improve our mental and emotional well-being.
