BioCentric Lighting™ is based on a deep understanding of human physiology. Light affects all species on earth, especially humans. Evolution has made natural variation of light essential for mankind, a need that hasn’t changed despite our changed behaviors. BioCentric Lighting™ is the only system on the market that can fully promote the circadian alignment by synchronizing our biological needs with solar time.
With BioCentric Lighting™ we control and combine the light parameters that influence your physiology. These are wavelength, intensity, direction, timing and duration. Our lighting environments are designed to have the same positive effects as daylight, securing a natural synchronization with biological clocks. Our light environments provide adaptable light to fulfill the biological need for each day, regardless of season.
Individuals have different biological needs with regard to lighting environment. Various situations demand different lighting conditions. The BioCentric Lighting™ system is easily customized according to the unique needs of the individual and the situation. BCL environments include sensors and algorithm based recipes, light recipes, to adapt to different users, occupations and times of day.
Ongoing research provides new understandings of the beneficial effects of light for improving sleep and wellbeing. The BioCentric Lighting™ system is easily adaptable to meet these new insights. BrainLit’s technology is in constant development in line with the latest research and our scientific advisory board. This creates a future for indoor lighting where human well-being is always in focus.
Key benefits of BioCentric Lighting™
Daylight exerts an alerting effect on our brain. We spend more time indoors today than ever and see less daylight than we biologically need. BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ System stimulates the natural production of the activation hormone cortisol during the day by mimicking variations of daylight indoors, improving cognition, drive and creativity.
Humans follow a sleep/wake cycle, making us alert at certain times of the day and sleepy at others. Light is a key factor influencing this cycle, also called the circadian rhythm. A disrupted circadian rhythm affects us negatively in many aspects, and may cause sleep disorders. BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ System contributes in balancing the circadian rhythm.
BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ System contribute in balancing level and timing of production of the activation hormone cortisol and the sleep hormone melatonin. The outcome is a balanced circadian rhythm, which improves wellness and stamina as a result of better sleep and higher alertness.
BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ System contributes to a circadian rhythm in balance. By mimicking daylight indoors it benefits many physiological processes vital to our health, including the immune system, metabolism, blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature.

BCL - BioCentric Lighting
Each luminaire has a wide range specification to be able to expose a healthy, biocentric light. These luminaires are controlled and adjusted by the light controller, the LCS, which sends control signals to all luminaires, based on algorithms and related data, gathered from the sensors in the environment. This is a unique and patented system composition, where healthy light is generated, thanks to a feedback system where control signals are processed with machine learning and related algorithms.

using BioCentric Lighting™
Light is not only for vision but for synchronizing the body with the solar day. People who spend time in our light environments are happier, healthier and sleep better. BCL can increase alertness and improve performance, but also provide a relaxing environment for individual creativity or recovery.
Regardless of your line of business, BCL is designed with the end user in mind. Whether that is a professional athlete adapting to a new timezone or a long term care patient in need of more daylight, BCL is easily adapted to fit different needs. We provide better quality of life. For everyone.
BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ environment is beneficial to use in educational environments, workplaces, gyms and arenas, the industrial sector, public spaces, hospital units, elderly care facilities and much more. Our portfolio of system solutions fit seamlessly in any environment.
