Light plays a big role in our lives. Indoor lighting in particular can affect our well-being and health. We design lighting that balances natural and artificial light as well as lighting parameters such as CRI, Kelvin, flicker and luminance jump. Ultimately, it helps reduce headaches, fatigue and strained eyes and even supports cognitive abilities, as new research shows.
Since the dawn of humanity, the sun has been our primary source of light. New technologies have gradually made us less dependent on the sun - in particular the invention of the incandescent light bulb. Today, when we spend almost 90% of our time indoors, it is more important than ever to develop solutions that support our circadian rhythm and contribute to everyone's well-being.
Good lighting enhances every colour and shade, creating an optimal customer experience. By measuring the Ra value, you can assess how well a light source reproduces colours. The higher the value, the better the source is at reproducing colours. On a scale from 1 to 100, all LIK products have a value of 90 and above.
Artificial lighting creates a large amount of light pollution. The consequences are many and we, the people, have a responsibility to do something about it. That's why we always make sure that our outdoor lighting, among other things, illuminates only what is necessary, points downwards and emits as little blue light as possible.
When light hits a surface, it will either be reflected or absorbed depending on the colour of the surface. By knowing how light reacts to surfaces, you can position light sources more strategically. For example, you can reflect light off white walls and make the room appear larger.
The Kelvin scale describes the temperature of light on a scale from 0 to 10,000. Above 4,000 Kelvin gives a cold light that increases our energy level, while a lower number gives a warmer light that makes us relax. The temperature of the light should always be chosen according to its function, the room and human well-being.
