Lighting is one of the principle elements of all modern workspaces in the 21st century, as it has the potential to largely influence the motivation levels, health, and performance of employees. Furthermore, it is a salient safety parameter that is essential for eliminating workspace trips and falls.
The 21st century is the era of innovations that are revolutionizing all modern workspaces. With the work culture itself undergoing a major transformation, the need of smart and efficient commercial building lighting has now become indispensable. One such innovation is the Human Centric Lighting (HCL) system.
Human Centric Lighting (HCL)
According to the European Lighting Industry Association, HCL is a novel type of lighting that benefits the biological as well as emotional health of the people. It ensures people’s well-being by enabling the commercial lighting solutions to emulate the levels of sunlight throughout the day. It is a holistic approach that comprehensively covers all aspects of lighting effects on one’s well-being, productivity and comfort in an office environment.HCL is known to influence the circadian rhythm in human beings. Circadian rhythm refers to an organism’s physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle while responding to the intensity of light in an environment. The circadian rhythm is firmly involved in all living systems at environmental, organismal, and cellular levels.
How HCL influences human health?
Also known as circadian lighting, Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is an innovative approach designed to nourish beneficial physiological and psychological effects on the humans. Since HCL emulates sunlight’s approach, it effectively supports human health and performance with deterministic planning and implementation of visual, emotional and biological effects of light.
Various scientific studies have showcased profound effects of HCL on almost 95% of participants with regards to improved healing, productivity and alertness. This solidifies the fact that HCL is a powerful innovative revolution of the modern era.
How HCL is revolutionizing modern workspaces?
As all modern workspace designs are now intended towards surging the productivity and performance of employees, HCL is emerging to be the best commercial lighting solution. Here are a few ways in which HCL is revolutionizing modern workspaces:
- Uplifts the mood of the employees and maximizes their energy levels
- Improves concentration and alertness, further leading to increased motivation
- Ensures appropriate light distribution for enhancing the designed environment experience
- An intelligent lighting solution which leads to a better office environment
HCL redefines space and dispenses tangible ways of providing a comfortable and customizable office environment to employees.
