Labluz - Sensory lighting

Labluz als Fabrikant

In the constant quest to improve the quality of the environments we inhabit, sensory lighting emerges as a powerful tool that has driven a change in the world of architecture and interior design. This trend, which unites science, technology, and art, is redefining the way we interact with spaces, stimulating the senses and elevating the quality of our experiences.

According to lighting architect Nicole Gomes, the influence of sensory lighting is vast and can be applied in a variety of environments. "Absolutely every space can benefit from this type of lighting, as long as it's used in the right way," he says. However, she stresses the importance of having a clear intention when designing lighting, considering the desired feel and atmosphere. "When we talk about sensory lighting, we're talking about sensations in the environment," Nicole notes. She points out that the main objective of this type of lighting is to create moods and activate sensations in the people who frequent these spaces.

In addition, the architect also reveals emerging technologies in the area of sensory lighting, with emphasis on the use of LED and Smart solutions. These technologies allow for precise control of lighting by varying the intensity and hue of light. The choice of color temperature, whether warm, cool, or neutral, plays a crucial role in creating the desired sensations.

Nicole emphasizes that lighting has a profound impact on people's emotional and well-being. When we are in a pleasant and comfortable environment, we release dopamine, the hormone of pleasure and well-being. On the other hand, uncomfortable environments, such as those with excessively intense light, for example, can cause anxiety and irritability by activating cortisol, the stress hormone.

Researcher Loretta Breuning, author of the book "Habits of a Happy Brain," explains that "when your brain releases one of these chemicals, you experience a sense of well-being." The connection between the themes gained prominence during the pandemic, accelerating the debate on integrative lighting and its impact on health. "Architecture is made for people, and the lighting must be in line with that," Nicole emphasizes.

Looking to the future, the expert foresees significant challenges for professionals in the field, especially architects and designers. With the increasing adoption of LED technology, those who don't upgrade it may be left behind. With this, she highlights the importance of including lighting as a mandatory subject in architecture and design courses.
