Human Centric Lighting, or HCL for short, stands for a planning approach that puts people and their requirements at the centre of lighting design. Human Centric Lighting addresses the visual, emotional and biological effects of light. In addition to visual criteria such as the specific visual task and good orientation in the room, it also includes the non-visual effects of light on people. In addition to cones and rods, the two photoreceptors for vision, our eyes also have another light-sensitive receptor type. This was only discovered at the beginning of the 21st century and adopts a role in the synchronisation of our day-night rhythm. In line with this, HCL-oriented architectural lighting takes into account the visual perception of architecture, the visual task as well as the emotional and biological component.
