Novus Attenzia office luminaires offer individual solutions for a perfectly lit workstation. Increase the productivity at every workstation and take your office to the next level.
What makes Attenzia so unique?
Sales director, Christian Sahle, explains the differences and functions of the Novus Attenzia space models.
Novus Dahle managing director, Frank Indenkämpen, talks about Novus Attenzia luminaires and the importance of healthy lighting at the workplace.
Lighting affects people: We feel the warmth of the first spring sun on our skin after a long winter. It lifts our mood; we feel more active – this is an example of the biodynamic effect of lighting. Sunlight isn’t just important for the production of vitamin D. The latest research shows that it also has a positive effect on our sleep-wake cycle. Conversely, we feel disturbed by light when our alarms go off early in the morning.
Light with an increased proportion of blue light works against tiredness. Warmer, softer lighting in the evening stabilises our inner clocks and promotes a restful night’s sleep. Lighting designers work off the course of the sun to equip office spaces with biologically effective lighting systems. That means that light intensity and colour temperature are adapted to the changes in natural light throughout the day.
To be able to work and concentrate in a healthy environment, sufficient light, as well as changes in light colour and intensity are all the more important, especially in indoor spaces. This is where the LED free-standing luminaire Novus Attenzia space active HCL comes into play. With its Human Centric Lighting technology, it supports the natural daily rhythm by taking on the function of daylight in artificially lighted spaces and adapting itself to the lighting conditions at the workstation with a colour temperature from 2,700 to 6,500 Kelvin. In doing so, the Novus Attenzia daylight luminaire boosts performance and happiness throughout the office. It also comes with a practical touch display that can be used to switch the luminaires from automatic mode to manual mode or dim the LEDs with just one touch.
Cold, white and bright light (4,000 Kelvin) stimulates the body and activates when working in daylight. Warm white light (3,000 Kelvin) increases concentration, ideal for working later in the day. The intensity of light, meaning the sum of all light beams emitted from a light is shown in lumens. The higher the lumen value, the brighter the light. Light brightness depends on the height at which it’s mounted, its range and the design of the light itself. Lumens/watts (lm/W) show how efficient a light is, meaning how much brightness can be created from one watt of energy. To measure how much intensity the light will generate on a defined surface (e.g. a desk), one more factor is important: Lux (lx, lat. for light). At least a 500-lux intensity is required for working indoors. This is defined in an EU guideline.
