As an option with LiFT, BIOS technology is the industry’s first wellness source that supplies a frequency given off by the sun that is missing from our current indoor lighting solutions. When used in everyday spaces to give occupants the right amount of daylight exposure, this can help regulate circadian rhythm, allowing for a more natural sleep cycle and increased productivity over time. Backed by scientific research, Pinnacle can offer a real circadian solution.

Who designed this product?

LiFT was designed by the Pinnacle Product Development Team, while the technology comes from BIOS Lighting.

Can you speak to the design features and technical innovations?

On average, 90% of our time is spent indoors under electric light. Unfortunately, standard light fixtures do a poor job mimicking the sun, making our days dimmer, our nights brighter, and our biology confused. Our bodies were designed to sync up to the one real constant in life, the sun. Circadian Rhythm is the human body clock that operates critical functions including the production of testosterone, growth hormone, cortisol, and melatonin. These hormones have a direct influence on a body’s overall functionality in critical areas including:

• Sleep • Cognition • Performance • Alertness • Metabolism

Indoor lighting solutions from Pinnacle Architectural Lighting with BIOS technology can now get people back on track with their circadian clocks.

How will the product impact the workplace?

LiFT Featuring BIOS Technology allows for the frequency of the sun to incorporated into any space. With the benefit of the sun in an indoor design, occupants will be able to sync their circadian rhythms with the natural rise and fall of the sun.

The ability to create clean clusters of light without having to worry about efficiency. No matter how you use this fixture in your design, it will always prove itself to be consistently unique in any floor plan. Available in all standard form factors with BIOS technology.

What do you think our readers will love about the product?

While different color tuning options promote themselves as circadian solutions, they are purely psychological. There are no physiological responses that happen with color tuning. With LiFT featuring BIOS Technology, the frequency given from the fixtures is the same that is given off from the sun. It also has a physiological response in our brains to help reset our circadian rhythm. This technology is driven by scientific findings that were first developed at NASA and engineered for astronauts at the International Space Station.

  • Thank you for sharing. Companies should certainly take circadian rhythms into consideration when implanting lighting. Is there flexibility in the lighting positions after installation? They look as though they may be in certain cases based on the examples in the pictures.
