CoeLux Srl is a high tech Company established in 2009 and headquartered in the Como Next Technology Park, near Lake Como.
The mission of CoeLux to foster an innovative solution for lighting, architecture and real-estate industries aiming at creating the perception of an extraordinarily wide space, by means of a genuine physical reproduction of optical atmospheric phenomena indoors.
Natural light provides numerous business benefits, increasing employee concentration, interest and proactivity, while reducing stress and conflict
According to CoeLux’s studies, people who stay in a room with the company’s realistic sky views record considerably lower levels of stress and anxiety than those staying in a room fitted with traditional, high-quality lighting
According to a recent study conducted by the European Union, the average European spends the majority of their daily life indoors – up to 90 percent, in fact.
With natural light responsible for controlling a number of human functions – lighting improves perceived comfort levels, as well as both psychological and physiological wellbeing – it’s unsurprising that passionate debates continue to centre on its role within design.
At the heart of this discussion is human-centric lighting, a design methodology that seeks to improve health, wellbeing and performance by combining the visual, biological and emotional benefits of natural light. In fact, by stimulating the circadian rhythm – the body’s internal cycle that regulates physiological function – in the right way, you can reduce stress, regulate hormones and prevent various diseases, such as pathologies related to blood pressure.
On top of the numerous health benefits, the presence of sunlight gives any room the illusion of infinite space, transforming perceptions and adding warmth. Now, through the adoption of new technologies, hyper-realistic artificial lighting systems can provide these benefits in the absence of a natural light source.
The unique CoeLux® lighting systems reproduce the true effect of natural sunlight entering through the opening in the integrated ceiling, with a realistic sun perceived at infinite distance surrounded by a clear deep blue sky.
Objects shine in the exceptional light casting sharp sky-blue shadows.
The CoeLux system works by combining three key elements: a cutting-edge LED technology that replicates the Sun’s light spectrum, direction and brightness; optical systems that reproduce the expanse of the sky; and a nano-structured material that mimics Rayleigh scattering, the physical phenomenon determining how we perceive the brightness and colour of elements in the atmosphere.
Experience the bliss and the joy of sunny skies anywhere and at any time
CoeLux® lighting systems reproduce a virtual experience of the sun and sky; especially in a below-ground environment, the effect is so powerful that it may radically change our perception of reality. It allows us to rediscover natural light in the real world in a totally new and surprising way
The result is achieved thanks to the comprehensive work carried on by an interdisciplinary team of researchers in the field of optical physics, numerical modelling, chemistry, material science, architecture and design.
