Over 85% of our time is spent inside, making indoor lighting a significant, although often overlooked, input in our daily lives. Lighting Science believes that all indoor spaces should offer healthy, appropriate light, from offices to schools, to stores and factories, to hospitals and senior living facilities. Below we have outlined just a few spaces that are benefitting across the globe from biologically attuned lighting. But the benefits from quality light don’t stop here! Any space, residential or commercial, can be improved just by offering the right light at the right time. In addition, our lighting solutions have helped organizations achieve WELL Building Standards and can reduce energy costs when replacing conventional lighting solutions.
