Seasonal Affective Disorder affects millions around the globe each year.
Noticing the lack of considered, design-led response to the problem, This is BOUW created Day&Night Light: two lamps fighting this cyclic form of depression.
A light solution to winter blues
Changes in this rhythm triggered by falling lights level in autumn and winter can cause seasonal affective disorder.
Day&Night Light uses different wavelengths of light to create varying colours, intended to help regulate the body's circadian rhythm. Each dichroic glass disc rotates alongside a light source to project the colours that we need to rebalance our body clock. One lamp glows blue in the morning to stimulate wakefulness, when the other projects a warm orange at night to softly send us to sleep.
