Bauchmomente Magazin: inio im Interview

In an interview with Bauchmoment, lighting expert Michael Mayerhofer explains how light influences our health and well-being. As co-founder of inio, Mayerhofer has a comprehensive insight into this fascinating topic.

The important role of light

Light, especially daylight, plays an essential role in our physical and mental health. It helps to distinguish day from night and influences our mood. Especially in the dark winter months, insufficient exposure to light can lead to mood swings.

Light: A natural mood booster

Mayerhofer also highlights how light can increase the production of serotonin, a mood-influencing neurotransmitter, and melatonin, a hormone that regulates our sleep-wake cycle.


Practical application of light insights

One way to harness the power of light is to use special technologies such as inio's daylight lamp. The lamp uses indirect light and can subtly affect consciousness without dazzling. It mimics the spectrum of visible daylight, particularly the blue light that is important for regulating sleep-wake cycles.


Human-centred lighting: Bringing light and life into harmony

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) follows the natural progression of daylight and can synchronize with our circadian rhythm. HCL shows its benefits on long-haul flights, in workplaces with little or no daylight, and can even reduce the stress associated with shift work.

In summary, the role of light goes beyond just lighting. Understanding how our bodies interact with light can help improve our mood, productivity and overall well-being. Technologies like inio's daylight lamp offer a practical way to bring these benefits into our homes and workplaces.
