Luum® is the new division of Lumen Center Italia® that design and produce high visual comfort lights for museums, art galleries, shops, houses and in general, spaces that need very high quality lighting.
L’attività nelle città e negli ambienti in cui viviamo si è estesa sempre più fino a erodere tempo alla naturale durata della notte. La luce artificiale nel notturno delle città, nei nostri uffici e nelle nostre case è divenuta protagonista assoluta. La larghissima diffusione di sorgenti LED di bassa qualità, con le sue possibili conseguenze negative sul benessere e sulla salute umana, ha spinto e motiva Luum® nel perseguire e porre il comfort visivo come obiettivo centrale della produzione dei propri apparecchi di illuminazione.
Luum® pursues visual comfort as result of correct calibration of light, environment and human necessities. From this, in fact, depend much of our wellbeing and health.

LIGHT

Light is that part of the electromagnetic spectrum visible to the human eye (400-700nm). It’s characterized by four fundamental physical aspects: quantity, quality, direction and periodicity. These four must be accurately considered for a correct design of lighting tools.

In the same way we have to consider psycho-perceptive aspects that interact light/object/observer, such as: size, value, material, support, direction, texture, shape.

In light perception and in the resulting image creation, come into play experiential and personal factors that give the colour experience: color volume, color surface, color layer and the experience of synesthesia.

For a perfect visual comfort we need to think through the biological effects of light, resulting from the electromagnetic spectrum quality on the retina, metabolism, environment, objects, on artworks, and on our mood.

LIGHT AND ARTIFICIAL LIGHT

For thousand years the only artificial light sources were derived from the combustion of substances available in nature. Torch, oil lamp, candles, gas or kerosene lamps, then in 1880 the advent of light bulbs. Later fluorescent lights, discharge lights and recently the LEDs.
The evolution of artificial light sources in the last two centuries focused on improving efficiency was in terms of increasing in emitted Lumen (lm) and in reduction of energy (W). Many times increasing efficiency has also replaced the importance of the emitted light spectrum quality.
This is particularly manifest in the case of LEDs currently on the market, whose rapid spread begins to pose problems regarding the proper lighting, visual comfort and eye health. (See Related Scientific articles)

The awareness of the significance of light quality was the starting point for Luum® for seeking new LED sources capable to get-together energy efficiency and light spectrum quality.
Since years Luum® is selecting the best of LED light sources existing on the market, many times requiring customized purchases, able to overcome the low quality problems.

ENVIRONMENT

Environments and closed spaces, their use and the objects in it deeply interact with light. The variables are several to count, such as volumes, surfaces, materials, walls, openings, space target use, trails, objects and between these also special objects such as sculptures, reliefs, paintings and even in addition curvilinear, straights, rough, soft, reflective, transparent and sharp locations and environments.

Visual comfort and the well-being, consequential from it, are the result of a correct analysis and of a proper application of light features and of the enlighten environment.
Quality of the light source, irradiation, direction of the light, quantity of light that hits an object, object characteristics, environmental features, standard observer, and individualities variations are key variables in the preliminary analysis for lighting design.

HUMAN NECESSITIES

Indeed the psycho-perceptual, biological, emotional, cultural, social, personal needs make essential the design, production and the installation of tools suited to emit correct light for any environment and for any needs. Just in this way light can satisfy basic needs like security illuminations, light for working, writing, reading; light to make conversation, eat, relax; courtesy lights; and even architectural lighting, emotional; decorative light.
Visual comfort is the result of the blend of complex variables that take place analyzing and calibrating:

  • Light source (meant as: incandescent lamp, fluorescent, LED or other);
  • Object (meant as a body that is illuminated);
  • Standard observer (meant as the ideal person who observes the object);
  • Context (meant as the environment in which the action takes place in the “see”);
  • Person (meant as the concrete physical person -man, woman, child, senior- eligible for lighting).

Luum® tools help lighting designers converting a simple lighting to a very high visual comfort lighting with physical and mental benefits.

VISUAL COMFORT

Luum® LED sources allow a better visual comfort. This is highly desirable since the sense stimuli that the brain processes come more than 80% from our eyesight. The importance of this sensorial channel is not only related to the image formation but also the activation of hormonal processes that govern the circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle).
In this way, light has a triple effect on human beings:

  • Visual – relating the image construction; light able to allow adequate visibility of shapes, details, colors.
  • Biological – relating the physiological (metabolic and hormonal) stimulation; high quality light that can bring energetic effects, alertness and attention; which can positively influence cognitive memory skills, language, learning, problem solving, reasoning and decision-making; which is able to give circadian rhythm stability and quality of sleep.
  • Emotional – relating structuring and creation of atmospheres; which influences the mood and stress.
