This presentation will be outlining this new dynamic lighting approach, where the sky-type and daylight inflow are taken into consideration actively, bringing the dynamic office lighting to life instead of only meeting the static illuminance requirement through artificial lighting. The daylight components, direct warm sunlight and diffuse cool skylight are the main source of inspiration for working with a unique combination of dynamic interaction between directional task lighting and diffuse ambient lighting, with respective intensities and colour temperatures to create naturally perceived luminous variations in the office environment.

Since 2017 the lighting technology and solution partners Tridonic, iGuzzini, Fagerhult and Zumtobel have teamed up with Aalborg University to develop and scientifically validate the ambitious Double Dynamic Lighting (DDL) concept. This new lighting design concept of dynamic indoor lighting for office environments demonstrates how advanced responsive lighting technology can bring the office lighting to life by bringing the qualities of natural light into the office and thereby improve the indoor lighting environment and work engagement. The Double Dynamic Lighting is embracing the dynamic qualities of daylight, referring to multisensory human perception of unpredictability, naturalness, flow of light, light modelling effect and personal light zones.

Henrik is Director of the Fagerhult Lighting Academy and Head of Research. As Head of Research, he strives to lead and expand the research activities of Fagerhult within the areas of lighting and human health. Qualities of various lighting conditions have been discovered to have a profound impact on the human health, and Fagerhult is at the forefront of the trend, embedding scientific knowledge and a deep understanding of the human health and psyche into its products to enable the best possible lighting imaginable, perceivable, and measurable.
