White paper: Biological effects of the LUCTRA LED desk lamp

Final project report: Biological effects of the LUCTRA LED desk lamp

By now we have all heard that artificial light disrupts our sleep, contributes to stress, provides us with less energy and affects our attention. But did you know that targeted changes of light colour during the day will enhance our well-being and consequently improve our performance?

So far, few research groups have examined the influence of different electric lighting situations systematically for biological effectiveness. Although, results of such examinations are required in order to set standards and benchmarks or even to issue reliable recommendations for planning.

Below we present you a clinical study about the biological effectiveness of the light of the LUCTRA® desk lamps, which is the first desk lamp ever with a systematic verification of its biological effect on melatonin suppression.

Read this paper to find out more about about how participants assessed their visual comfort during the five different light settings, and why we need to pay attention to the melatonin produced in our bodies.For further information about the topic, visit: or join the Smart Workspace Design Summit, where you will be able to feel the light by LUCTRA®

Yet too often, corporate university executives get stuck on the operational level and face an ongoing struggle to prove corporate university value for the organization. Preparing to write his next book, corporate university strategist Martyn Rademakers tapped the brains of ‘serial corporate university creator’ Stefaan van Hooydonk (Nokia, Agfa, Philips Lighting and Flipkart) and extracted two practical examples. What is the license to operate of the corporate universities he established? Read here how the highly effective mission of Philips Lighting University and Flipkart’s Flipskool got shaped. ‘’It’s the Mantra, stupid!’’
