Maintaining an upbeat energy level can be challenging, but thanks to today’s new lighting technology, that challenge is getting easier to overcome. Light fixtures that simulate natural daylight for instance, along with color temperature controls are improving the way we live. Their ability to increase our focus and reduce eye fatigue work in combination to help us reach our peak performance. With innovations like these, lighting is evolving beyond simple visibility and into the realm of enhancing clarity while boosting vitality.
Natural daylight? Color temperature? What does it all mean? It’s no surprise that we need light in our lives. Not just philosophically, but physically. Daylight —a combination of all direct and indirect sunlight during the day— is proven to be very beneficial to our bodies. It warms us, wakes us, and lifts us up. How does it do this? I’m glad you asked! In short, energy from that light triggers an increase in serotonin levels when hitting our skin, thus picking us up and affecting our mood; whereas a lack of energy is often linked to insufficient sun exposure.
However, natural daylight simulated lights are not meant for tanning! Here, the LED (Light Emitting Diode) is calibrated to emit wavelengths similar to daylight. The way they energize us is by enhancing colors and clarity, which reduces eye fatigue –essentially making it easier to see indoors.
Meanwhile, Color Temperature is the quantified temperature of the light rays emitting from the LED’s. This is important because understanding the color temperature of your light source can alter your mood and therein usage. There are three color temperature settings incorporated into each lighting fixture below: Natural Daylight, Neutral White Light and Soft White. The Natural Daylight color setting is the coolest and bluest, and helps to reduce eye fatigue, while increasing focus and alertness for peak performance. The Neutral White Light color setting is an ideal middle ground –not yellow, too bright or too blue; creating a comfortable setting for general household tasks and everyday living. The Soft White (or Warm White Light) color setting creates a relaxing environment without being too bright or intense. Because it’s least impactful to your sleep schedule, it’s the ideal setting to wind down as you prepare for bed.
When we’re unable to venture outside, innovations by Evolution with brands like Tensor™ (which has been in the task lighting business since 1959) help maintain our energy levels and mood. Here are a couple of these innovative fixtures…
Introducing the Tensor™ 55” Dimmable Natural Daylight LED Floor Lamp, 19848-000. Featuring a natural daylight light source, this dimmable lamp rewards your residence or business with stylish functionality. Fashioned in beige and white, it boasts dimmer control to deliver a range of options. This (integrated) LED’s natural daylight allows you to see more clearly and comfortably, rendering colors sharper and brighter. The color temperature control in the lamp also allows for increased customization.
Next is our Tensor™ 22” Color Temperature Dimmable LED Clamp Desk Lamp, 19643-001. This versatile lamp adds convenience to any workspace, sporting a modern, white matte finish, an adjustable body, plus clip-on/clamp down dual positioning. It also boasts an energy efficient natural daylight (integrated) LED, with color temperature control, both energizing and enabling you to choose from a range of color settings to suit your mood.
Thanks to these flourishing lighting technologies produced by Tensor™ we can now improve energy levels and mood with our indoor light fixtures. This may be the tip of the iceberg in bridging the gap between light simulation and reality…Another Bright Idea from Tensor™.
