Light Cognitive promotes well-being and healthy sleep-wake cycles

Light Cognitive, a newer addition to the FBCC Corporate Members, might just be the solution to winter’s dark days. Light Cognitive has developed an indoor lighting system that closely mimics the natural day-night cycle. Instead of trying to recreate sunlight, Light Cognitive aims to bring the natural pattern of daylight indoors. There is plenty of physics and research behind the product as Founder Sami Salomaa explains: “Our product is a vast light field that simulates the light of the sky. It is not a display, there are no pixels, it’s a continuous light field.” The Big Sky product is available as a skylight or large wall installation. Some can even be found here in London!
