From 15 November to 25 December the MARCH Architecture School will host a cycle of events on natural lighting design and its all-round influence of man, “Living Light. Natural Lighting Design”.
On Thursday, 29 November, Paolo di Trapani will give a lecture at MARCH on “Natural Light and Its Impact on People”.
Paolo di Trapani, a Professor of Optics at Insubria University (Italy) and founder of the CoeLux systems that imitates sunlight with 100% authenticity, has spent over a decade to develop his CoeLux lighting systems and is ready to share his experience at the lecture.
Natural light is a popular theme in contemporary architectural design. Technologies make it possible to feel in full the presence of the sky and the sun even in spaces completely devoid of natural light access.
By reconstructing physically the light diffusion processes that transform our atmosphere into the bright blue sky while creating warm sunlight, CoeLux has put on the market manmade skylight that can replace real windows and produce a 100% illusion of a window with the blue sky and sun in any room. Like a work of art, this system brings to life the mental memory of the sky and sun, presenting them in a heretofore unseen light.
The CoeLux systems give the advantages of sunlight in houses, offices, shops, airports, shopping malls, hotels, health-building centres, museums and hospitals. Numerous research projects have subjected these advantages to psychological, physiological, biological and medical tests.
