The Latest in Tunable Lighting
I get asked about what is trending in healthcare almost every week. And every week I respond, tunable lighting!
What is it? How does it work and how do you control it? How does it affect a person’s circadian rhythm? What research or case studies are out there? The basic info that you need to know is that tunable lighting is a light source ability to change from warm to cool color temperatures and back throughout the day. This is being used more and more in healthcare and as a healing tool.
More research is definitely needed before there is a go-to process to design using tunable lighting but in the meantime, check out these great current articles. Definitely a good start and more to come!
Our Unity series shown in this article not only helps provide comfort through design but is in the queue to receive LED tunable lighting modules this year. One step closer for Visa Lighting! Enlightenmentmag.com
Recently LD&A published an article by Michael Siminovitch, UC Davis and Nicole Graeber, CLTC, that goes deeper into the design process behind circadian rhythm. You can view that article here:

Looking forward to the exciting future of tunable lighting, stay tuned for more 😉
