Press release 2024-04-22

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to overlook the impact of our environment on our overall health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), we spend more than 90% of our time indoors, underscoring the crucial significance of maintaining a healthy indoor environment for all humans1. With a mission to enhance health and wellbeing, the partnership between Ecophon and BrainLit joins cutting-edge acoustics with Biocentric lighting systems. 

“At the core of this partnership lies a simple yet powerful belief: to bring the natural outdoor qualities indoors to create environments that enhance public health. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our partnership”, states Daniel Eklund, Senior Business Unit Manager at Ecophon. 

“For science-based manufacturers like us at Ecophon and BrainLit, improving people’s lives is not just a byproduct of the work – it’s our passion and driving force”, explains Tord Wingren, Founder and Head of Business Unit EU at BrainLit. “We understand that a healthy indoor environment requires a harmonious balance of acoustics and lighting. By joining forces, sharing our collective knowledge and expertise, we strengthen our ability to create and deliver meaningful change”. 

Extensive studies confirm the positive effects of a good sound environment and daylight on health, wellbeing, and productivity2. From enhancing concentration and cognitive performance to promoting better sleep and reducing fatigue, the benefits extend beyond individuals to benefit organizations holistically.  

The partnership between Ecophon and BrainLit will expand the availability of our products to a broader European market offering compatible solutions with smooth installations, using the BrainLit five click commissioning concept, 5CC, developed for various indoor environments such as offices, schools, elderly care, and healthcare. 

Our goal is clear – to provide supporting and beneficial indoor environments for humans. 

Join us in our journey to see the substantial effect we have on people. 

Our partnership will be accessible in selected countries.
