Meeting the Moment: Lighting and Wellness

The movement to design environments that promote human health and wellness has the lighting industry laser-focused on new metrics and tools that can be used to inform the design process. This webinar will provide a critical overview of factors that can affect nonvisual responses to light and discuss simulation techniques that may be implemented to account for daylight spectra and electric lighting contributions to meet different circadian lighting metrics. It will also present a method that aims to facilitate field studies of lighting using data from wearables.
