Valina light / desk lamp

Valina light
Valina light

The Valina light is an ambient / task light that can adjust in colour temperature in accordance to what happens in nature. The body's circadian rhythm is heavily influenced by the body's external environment with light playing the most critical role. Natural lighting has a positive effect on a person's well-being, mood and productivity however we are living in an age when access to the outdoors and natural lighting is scarce and our dependency on artificial lighting is increasing. The Valina light seeks to restore balance to the body's circadian rhythm by mimicking the patterns of sunlight.
