#1 Lighting Patterns from Nature
Our environments feel tense and
chattering, overwhelming our senses.
We need calm and nurturing places,
and lighting that is inspired by - Nature!

Lighting and particularly LEDs, have hidden risks for health. We need to use people centered technology for - Health!
#3 Frugal creativity or Less is More

Nature Principles for Healthy Lighting
All spaces, small and big, are important for people to relax and be healthy. I use simple patterns of light from Nature.
My lighting applications and solutions are based on research design, technology, psychology, neural response, physics.
Nature is 100% healthy and a source for self-centering, healing, and regenerating
Healthy Lighting improves our physical, circadian, mental, and emotional state.
Simplicity is the use of Less is More in lighting, that is healthy and sustainable.
