Arup's "Live-In" Circadian Lighting Labs
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
New research on circadian entrainment and the expanding understanding of the non-visual photoreceptors makes headlines daily; we're up to five different types of ipRGCs in the retina. With a skeptical take on all the hype, lighting designers at Arup are taking a hands-on approach. They are exploring the technology in-house and sharing results among their design teams across the globe. Jake Wayne, senior lighting designer, leads Arup's Boston lighting group, and Toby Lewis is a senior lighting designer at Arup's San Francisco office. They have developed and continue testing a dynamic circadian white lighting system in their own offices, with their own employees here in the US. Wayne and Lewis use this experience to educate clients: emphasizing psychological benefits, discussing the potential health and productivity impacts, and specifying flexible systems as the research evolves.

Laser Light Sources and Applications in Architectural Lighting
Conventional halogen and metal halide light sources produce highly directional beams that many architects and lighting designers rely on, but with lower efficiency and shorter lifetimes than LED. And while LEDs are highly efficient with longer life, beam angles less than 10° are challenging to produce from compact luminaires. Today, laser diodes are attracting interest as efficient, highly collimated white-light sources, with great potential in architectural lighting and beyond.
