Why is lighting important for Wellbeing?

At Helvar, we take our role as human-centric lighting experts seriously. Optimally lit spaces enhance your wellbeing, increase your productivity, and make you feel good.

The space where you work, learn, or relax should be in tune with the lighting to boost levels of personal wellbeing. Lighting guides your circadian rhythm and helps to avoid the negative impacts of dark seasons.

 Wellbeing is our core focus when designing luminaire components and intelligent lighting solutions. As of 2020, our Finnish Headquarters in Espoo were the first Nordic space to be accredited with the Gold WELL Standard.

Understanding the WELL Standard

Technology allows us to design interoperable, intelligent, and user-friendly solutions that enable each of the WELL elements.

There are 10 WELL v2 Concepts laid out by the International WELL Building Institute™, of which Light is a vital element. The WELL Light concept promotes exposure to light and aims to create lighting environments that promote visual, mental and biological health.

Dynamic, natural lighting through DALI

Fixed lighting is unnatural – whether it’s in an office, a classroom or a hospital. Environments which feature dynamic lighting support improved wellbeing and boost productivity since they more accurately reflect the natural daylight.

Helvar Intelligent Lighting Solutions enable the design of indoor lighting to include intensity control, colour temperature control, and colour control in a standardized way, using a single DALI address – often referred to as DALI Type 8. Systems supporting DALI’s Colour temperature control standard enable you to pick a colour and intensity scene in one easy step, meaning the implementation of a dynamic lighting environment is now easier than ever before.
