Human Centric Lighting

“Lighting specifically designed to produce a beneficial physiological and/or psychological effect upon humans.“

Light as the source of well-being

Circadian-friendly lighting

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) supports human health, well-being and performance through deterministic and holistic planning and implementation of the visual, emotional and, in particular, biological effects of light.

The predominant focus of Human Centric Lighting is the needs of a human being of their living, leisure, and work environments. The interdisciplinary balance between the parameters of artificial lighting, natural daylight, architecture and technology creates the right light at the right time for each use.

CHRONOGY Eyewear – HCL light glasses that boost your life

Reduce Jetlag, increase performance, support well-being

The understanding of human centric lighting has improved rapidly within the last decade. This is due to the recent discovery of special photoreceptor cells in the eye. These cells that do not aid with sight, but instead help with controlling our body’s physiology.

CHRONOGY EYEWEAR are light treatment glasses that create supplemental lighting comparable to natural light from the sky, whenever and wherever you need it. The amount, timing and quality of light during day and night has substantial impact on our performance and health. Benefit from the latest advances in scientific research, and years of experience in lighting with personalized light treatment plans to support your health, well-being and performance.

"Dynamic daylight supports humans in all areas."

An interview with Andreas Wojtysiak, OSRAM Innovation, and the OSRAM product managers Nicolai Heber and Peter Bach

"A biological impact is primarily achieved by utilizing the control phenomena of light that coordinate our bodily functions. These include day/night control or activating effects on the central nervous system. Due to evolution, our biological functions and processes are mainly based on our roots in Central Africa – meaning a rhythm with 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. Our biological system, our internal clock, so to speak, has only partially adapted to life in our corner of the world, where the length of a day changes between summer and winter."

More light, more productivity

Increased lighting intensity means people can work in a more concentrated way, tire less quickly, make fewer errors, and detect errors more precisely. And what makes life more pleasant for the individual, is more lucrative overall for the company.
