Lumen Center Italia has trademarked Luum / Human Friendly Light, which primarily use high quality light sources, developed in collaboration with the most important world production protagonists of the sector. Luum is a new generation of LED "human friendly" light that, in addition to the usual LED energy saving, offers a light source comparable to daylight. Studies and recent researches reveal that most of the commercially LED today disturb the circadian cycle and impoverish colours perception. Lumen Center Italia, always careful to visual comfort, has decided to offer a "clean light" able to have a positive influence on metabolism and well-being.

This system has been studied by Arch. Alessandro Colombini to keep the masterpiece integrity, and to enhance the public pleasure thanks to an extraordinary colour rendering of 98/100. Lumen Center Italia also make its contribution to Expo 2015, lighting the Japanese pavilion. The company has produced the restaurant area lighting system, where Japanese chefs will prepare sushi live.
