Abstract

As world’s societal wellbeing is growing, in the near future the ‘seniors condition’ will force designers and companies to rethink the way they conceive, produce and sell products. This condition is fundamental for some strategic markets like the lighting domain. In this scenario, Human Centric Lighting (HCL) approach considers both seniors’ biological aspects and technological advances to develop eco-efficient solutions that consider visual and non-visual aspects of light. This paper show the use of HCL as a new design approach able to help designers in the development of a wide range of lighting solutions; from the analysis of human conditions, this paper describes the research process used to design a HCL-Based System that perfectly meets seniors’ needs.
