Lighting is critical to saving energy and ensuring the look and feel of a space meets your design goals.

But did you know how important lighting and lighting design are to your well-being?

The exposure to the right amounts of light during the day, as well as the colors and dynamics from nature, strongly impact our mood, energy levels, comfort, quality of sleep and our health and well-being in general.



On average, we spend more than 90% of our time indoors, where we often don’t get the right amount and quality of light to feel energized and healthy.


Bring natural light indoors with Signify’s NatureConnect, which uses advanced content and intuitive control, along with an array of LED luminaires, to do just that. The NatureConnect solution is based on thorough research on the impact of nature on people. Using optimized principles and algorithms from nature, it creates rich and meaningful artificial lighting scenes for a wide range of indoor spaces and activities.

Natural Lighting Options


Day Rhythm

The Day Rhythm mode provides dynamic lighting that follows the rhythm of the sun. It runs automatically to ensure the right light at the right time of the day.


Light Scenes

The natural Light Scenes apply natural colors and dynamics for a fully immersive experience and can be tailored to your specific activities and needs.
