Conclusions and Possible Guidelines for Circadian Lighting Design
Today there is no internationally accepted standard that establishes rules for designing a circadian lighting system for interior spaces. For several years, in many different contexts, we have been talking about human centric lighting, although both the definition and the practical application of this discipline are controversial and debated. In this concluding chapter, through the analysis of the original research results presented in this book and of other sectoral research, we propose a framework of possible guidelines for circadian lighting. The elements that come into play in this framework are the natural light present in interior spaces, but also lighting design and lighting product design achievable currently thanks to the availability of LED light sources and the new lighting management systems.
