Luxo believes that lighting must be adjusted according to your age, the task you perform, the size of your workstation and your surroundings. They also believe that lighting must be individually adjustable and that the need for good lighting is critical and science based:
“It is a fact that light is one of the basics for life on earth. Just think: Sunlight manages the photosynthesis of plants, where light energy transforms to chemical energy. The length of daylight affects plants' and animals' propagation, the change of seasons. In exactly the same way light is affecting us humans. The light is not just directed through the eye to our brain's vision center. It also affects the thyroid gland, which produces the sleeping hormone melatonin that makes us sleepy at night.
In daylight, the pineal gland stops making melatonin. Instead the stress hormone cortisol is produced in the adrenal cortex gland. But, if we lose a lot of light on account of the dark season, the pineal gland continues to send out its melatonin even during daytime. After a while our body does not know whether it is night or day — if we should go to sleep or stay awake. Therefore, the lighting at work has greater significance than what we may think. You can create a stimulating working environment by the help of a lighting solution combining general lighting the individual lighting to a comfortable lighting level that is spread evenly in the eye and reaches the whole retina.”
Working together with recognized international designers, Luxo creates lighting that is at the forefront of trends and opportunities of today and the future.
