A Second Revolution in LED Lighting – From Simple Illumination to Ergonomics

“We are in the midst of a lighting revolution — a second lighting revolution — that promises seismic shifts. The ongoing replacement of today’s lighting infrastructure with LED technology is opening the door for connected lighting systems,”James Broderick at the Connected Lighting Systems Workshop.

From electronic devices to the fixtures that light our homes, LED lighting is quickly becoming omnipresent in our everyday lives. Standard incandescent and fluorescent lighting cannot deliver the full lighting spectrum humans need, what is called a “high CRI”. Over time, these traditional light sources can have adverse effects on our mental and physical health. This can be resolved with LED technology, and Light Polymers’ photonic film LED technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we experience our offices, classrooms, and homes.

LED lighting offers a variety of benefits that are not possible with standard light sources. The lack of sunlight exposure in the workplace has been heavily debated for over 20 years. It has been argued that this can lead to numerous health problems, including serotonin and hormone deficiencies. This could mean that the lighting in most schools and office buildings can be harmful to the health and well-being of the people inside. Crystallin® products by Light Polymers can help replicate sunlight indoors much more efficiently and at a lower installation cost than other solutions. And with lower day-to-day energy costs, Crystallin® can be utilized in the places it’s needed most.

In addition, the field of study known as color psychology is dedicated to the research of how color affects our feelings and behavior. Through this research, scientists have proven that the colors we see affect our mood, productivity, and overall well being in various ways. Light Polymers Crystallin® LED technology enables lighting with a much higher color-rendering index than most incandescent, fluorescent and LED lighting on the market today. Furthermore, the Crystallin® film comes in many colors including red, orange, blue, and customizable spectrums. This allows us to use Crystallin® technology as a means to influence the colors we interact with every day.

Crystallin downlights are available now in Asia and are coming soon to the US. Visit our website for more information at
