Explore the extensive research on sleep patterns and circadian rhythms to understand the daily impact that light has on the body and mind in a presentation by leading international lighting design consultancy, Nulty.

Leading international lighting design consultancy Nulty will present a thought-provoking presentation on the interplay between lighting design and sleep. Led by Nulty’s Director Emilio Hernandez, the presentation will explore how we consume lighting throughout the day, drawing upon extensive research into sleep patterns and circadian rhythms to understand the daily impact that light has on the body and mind.

Nulty’s research examines how lighting is considered an increasingly valuable tool for enhancing spaces by providing the appropriate 'energy’ and practical ambience throughout the day. The presentation will explore how sleep patterns are strongly linked to Circadian rhythms, and how to understand the light we ‘consume' throughout the day to ensure that we wind down appropriately, and wake up to the correct level and quality of light.

Using inspirational case studies from the world of hospitality design, Emilio will demonstrate how Nulty is working to produce a comprehensive guide for hospitality designers to ensure that the impact of lighting within design is fully understood. The study is part of Nulty’s ongoing mission to produce a Manifesto for Good Sleep, an instructive guide for the industry that will demystify the process around using light to create enhanced environments for sleep.
