As interior designers it is highly likely you are always considering the possibilities of how good design can shape a person’s day to day life and contribute to overall wellness. The obvious examples are those items we use every day such as chairs, computers, desks and the like, but have you considered the use of acoustic lighting as part of that solution?
Designers have the unique opportunity to contribute to human wellbeing in one of the most difficult times in modern history. Designing working space for humans has never been more deliberate, and with the increase of stress in our lives and jobs, it’s a key consideration to think about wellness in the context of all our senses. Sound and noise should be foremost in a designer’s mind when considering workplace layouts and fittings. It might be common to think about acoustic treatments such as panels and floor coverings, but did you know how much you can achieve by combining lighting and acoustic solutions?
Ambient noise is often used as a white sound to block out surrounding distractions. Acoustic lighting is another innovative way to minimise noise clutter while offering customised high output lighting options for a space, and there are some surprising benefits to considering this as part of your final design scheme. Luxxbox acoustic lights are designed to take advantage of the often overlooked void between a desk and ceiling. Luxxbox fixtures are designed specifically to maximise their sound absorption quotient, so in open spaces, they can limit sound reverberation. Traditional treatments often require permanent attachment to the ceiling or floor, but our lights are flexible in their positioning, to enable designing for target key areas that may produce excessive noise.
Here are some ways that consideration of our noise-reducing office lighting can contribute to the wellness of the world.
INCREASED SENSE OF WELLBEING
In a time of heightened stress and increasing anxiety, our senses are overwhelmed. Walking into a workplace that has been purposefully designed for humans is like a breath of fresh air. Perhaps without even realising, our senses get a break from the noise, the bright lights, and the anxiety that many environments create, because they are not considering all our senses in their design. Style, practicality and wellness can live together, arguably this is the goal of good design. Luxxbox is proud to meet several of the WELL Building Standards code, ensuring practical benefits of noise reduction and optimising lighting.
