Human Centric 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.

Human Centric Lighting (HCL)

by OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

The most obvious effect of light on humans, is vision. It enables us to identify brightness, shapes, colors, images, and perceive information and contrast. But light also impacts our biology; it affects our hormones, alertness, attention and fatigue, and also determines our body clock and circadian rhythm. Human centric lighting takes these effects into consideration…

Get started with Human Centric Lighting – it’s easy

The principle: “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…”
