According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American spends 93% of their life indoors. I know, I just got a little depressed too.
With a statistic like that, there is no question office designs are particularly crucial to our health. With the ongoing trends and demands for transparency and open layouts, new standards are forming how buildings impact people's health and well-being. A new look on how to introduce sustainable measures on people in relationship to the building and office design breaks down into four sections: light, air/water, nourishment/fitness/mind, and comfort.
Today we're going to dive into the benefits of office lighting in design.
Good lighting enhances the mood and contributes greatly to people's sense of well-being. International Association of Light Designers explain, studies show the quality of light affects people in many different ways. For example, office worker satisfaction and productivity can be positively affected.
We all know the discombobulated feeling of being stuck under fluorescent lights at the office. Even if we pulled the lucky card and sit near a window, we develop problematic working conditions as well; it's too cold in the winter to think, it's too hot in the summer to function. How can we get our perfect natural light condition?! Should we all just invest is Himalaya salt lamps and call it a day?
