G2 Linear Accent

Ketra’s lighting technology is delivered by a custom driver chip inside the lamp that enables it to produce consistent light that is measured and calibrated 360 times per second. The system follows natural light cycles based on geolocation to supply illumination that shifts throughout the day, emulating the color temperature and intensity of sunlight.

Good Day&Night Troffer
Healthe by Lighting Science

Lighting Science furnishes “human-centric” multispectrum circadian lightning to 2 foot by 2 foot and 2 foot by 4 foot troffers to allocate the right amount of illumination exactly when needed. The Good Day&Night technology fosters biological advantages prompted by natural cycles of sunlight—like productivity and focus—that stimulate a well-functioning circadian rhythm.

Barcelona-based industrial designers David Ramos and Jordi Bassols conjure a sunny glow, articulated by the sculptural curvature of Duo. The flush-mounted ceiling fixture is enveloped in a matte lacquered outer shell, while the interior is swathed in warm oak veneer—a perfect combination of warm and cool materials suitable for residential and commercial spaces.

On earth, the naturally occurring circadian light cycle produces the highest levels of blue light in the morning, and, as the day progresses, less and less—effectively sending your body the message that it is time to sleep. The aptly dubbed ZERO BLUE LED bulb emits none of the aforementioned hue to promote better sleep. Designed with a pairing of green and red phosphors, the LEDs produce a white light.
