   Nature Principles for Healthy Lighting



improve human health

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.
