How to Design Human-Centric Lighting
How to design human centric lighting

"If you go into an intensive care unit, it is kept constantly lit. This means your internal clock cannot lock onto a signal, meaning it will start to drift, and physiology will start to
fall apart."

-Professor Russell Foster

Recently, Lux sat down with Professor Russell Foster to discuss his discoveries and thoughts on the importance of human-centric lighting.

Foster is credited with discovering light sensitive ganglion cells in the retina of the eye, which influence the body's internal clock. In response to the discovery, Foster believes that the lighting industry now has to work more clearly to define what a space is being used for and then light it accordingly.

The MH Companies represents several manufacturers who have developed lighting solutions that directly address the challenges and demands of designing human-centric lighting outcomes.
