Active Light Application
Active Light In The Office
Creating Light Creates Inspiration
Against the background of the fact that light also affects humans at a biological level, the problem discussed here becomes clear with today’s 5 usual office lighting: Contrary to sunlight, which varies its intensity and color temperature throughout the day, artificial light is static and its illumination intensity is usually about 500 lux and a color temperature of 4000 Kelvin. But that the standard lighting intensity of 500 lux is perceived as too low in the workplace.
Zumtobel provides lighting solutions through Active Light for specific lighting conditions in the office so that the user can make use of individual control options as far as possible, depending on the task and individual preference, and he is able to work with a lighting intensity of up to 800 lux. The right light at the right time also has a positive influence on the cognitive performance and therefore on the creativity of the human being.
Active Light In Industry
Creating Light Creates Precision
Active Light can make a valuable contribution, especially to shift workers, for an adapted synchronization of the rhythm of the day. Intelligent lighting control systems and innovative sensors also allow that through the number and location of the persons, their frequency and movement patterns, the right lighting scenario is provided for the respective activity and therefore safety, precision and quality is promoted.
Active Light For Shop & Retail
Creating Light Creates Emotion
Active Light integrates the insights gained from the Zumtobel study, in order to provide the customer with the preferred light mood and, on the other hand, to present brands and products in the best possible way. At an emotional level, Active Light creates a light mood that positively affects well-being and thus also the length of stay in the business. At a visual level, Active Light provides a targeted approach through orientation and variation of luminance intensity with respect to space and time.
Active Light concepts based on dynamic light colors, adapted to the respective product, improve the quality assessment. With high-quality architecture and attractive goods presentation, not only does the willingness to purchase increase, but also the acceptance of higher prices.
Active Light For Art and Culture
Creating Light Creates Imagination
Active Light in art and culture takes into account all the conservative and visual aspects and reconciles them with the movement patterns of the visitor in space and time. Technologies such as tunable White are not only able to vary the color of the day with the day, but they can also match the materialization, art form, and the working technique of the artist. Finally, the artists’ messages are not only characterized by the choice of color, but also by the history of the work, place, daylight or artificial light and the like.
Active Light Outdoors
Creating Light Creates Interaction
Active Light solution harmonizes all the three levels of light (visual, biological and emotional). If the users of an outdoor space are integrated in the planning, a lighting solution is created that serves both human beings and the environment alike. This improves the sense of security, orientation and quality of stay in public areas. The light also has a social dimension as it promotes the communication and interaction of people.
Active Light as a Connection Between Man and Architecture
With Active Light, Zumtobel has formulated a visionary objective: “Creating Light Creates Life”. The dynamic artificial light is based on the naturally given, elementary relationship between man and light in all spheres of life. With the help of state-of-the-art technology, Active Light offers the possibilities to dynamically reconcile the original needs of people with the requirements of modern life. The interaction of nature, people and technology sets the course for new light-planning and architectural approaches with a holistic aspiration.
