As research analytics continue to be distributed to the public, Light Vitality Group aims to ensure that everyone from building developers to building occupants understands how that information impacts their environmental well-being. At LVG, we are committed to educating communities of the many, overlapping layers of knowledge that light and its effect on the human body touches.
By providing communities with more relatable education content, and design professionals with a platform to bridge their interests and design concepts through digital and personal interfacing, LVG reinforces a structured and collaborative methodology for assessing circadian light design recommendations that can be effectively distributed to the public, and encourage movement towards improved wellness living standards in built environments.
LVG brings you a collection of verbal and visual references tailored to support your interest in light and health. We provide these references to further advance research opportunities in light and health applications which bridge the interests of architectural, healthcare, civic and economic markets so we may one day incorporate best practices of healthy lighting standards into the built environment.

Circadian Light Performance: Understanding the Absolute and Relative Values
Color temperature or spectrum – does it really matter which? When it comes to light and health, the difference between these two matter greatly. Our bodies have become aligned to the amount of spectrum in daylight that exists within each dynamic range of color temperature relative to the time of day that color temperature is emitted. LVG breaks down the nuances between these light values to help others better understand how they’re used in light and health applications.
How much light is too much light? A chief concern of both community and industry, that question receives much attention from the light and health community. The intensity with which we receive each range of white light is as equally important to a light profile as spectrum, but visual comfort is also critically important in design criteria. LVG breaks down the intensity values found in circadian light profiles and delivers the results in a clear and resourceful way. Click here to learn more about the importance of light intensity and browse some tips on how to get the most of your daily dose.
Looking for a head start in circadian light practice? Luckily, there are a number of tools being released from medical and educational research facilities used to analyze the relative impact of design options on our circadian system. LVG uses these tools to identify light sources and light levels which perform optimally within circadian light applications. Through reviewing the circadian performance of products released to market, and applying performance values to them, we offer a resource which streamlines project management for designers just breaking in to the circadian light market.
