The same cycle takes place every day in the human body. The internal clock determines sleeping and waking phases, but also heart frequency, blood pressure and mood – a rhythm of biological processes mainly controlled and supported by light. Hormones, especially cortisol and melatonin, are the most active ones. If the body lacks light as a timer or clock, the result can be chronic fatigue, sleep disorders or depressions.


PULSE VTL (Visual Timing Light) ensures motivating light in the office. Throughout the day. The innovative light management system brings the dynamics of natural daylight to the interior of the building and expands the emotional and ergonomic aspects of light quality. Biodynamic light (Human Centric Lighting) can provide lasting well-being of the employees at the workplace especially in offices with insufficient daylight and also during the winter months when the internal clock is barely synchronised with daylight.


The innovative light management system has been developed in close cooperation with Prof. Dr. med. Dipl. Ing. Herbert Plischke, professor for light and health at the University of Munich, Faculty for Applied Sciences and Mechatronics. A biologically effective luminaire equipped with PULSE VTL changes brightness and light colour, while adapting itself to natural daylight. The greatest effect is achieved by biodynamic light (Human Centric Lighting) if it is incident on the eye from an extensive light source (indirect lighting) and under the right angle of incidence (from the front and from above).






Light in the interaction with hormones

Cortisol and melatonin levels of the body during a typical course of the day.

Morning

Morning

The hormone cortisol is produced in the body in the morning. It stimulates the metabolism and programs the body for day mode. The first morning light suppresses the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. PULSE VTL supports the activity of the stress hormone cortisol at the beginning of office work by stimulating cold-tone light and high illuminance values.

Noon

Noon

The levels of cortisol decrease over the course of the day. However, good performance levels of the office workers are still maintained around midday. For PULSE VTL, this means that it continues providing mainly activating cold-tone light and high illuminance values.

Afternoon

Afternoon

In the afternoon, the production of cortisol in the body has already decreased significantly, with the active working phase approaching its end. The production of the sleep hormone is not yet required at this moment. PULSE VTL supports this transitional period by means of a neutral mixed light. The illuminance is gradually reduced.

Evening

Evening

The melatonin hormone makes workers tired and reduces the activity in favour of night sleep. With biodynamic light during the day, the melatonin level is correspondingly high during the night. The person sleeps well and is rested and productive the next day. PULSE VTL supports the transition to the rest phase through reduced brightness and relaxing warm tone light.
