Abstract

In last years, the world population’s average age has constantly increased. Thus, the ‘seniors’ class will be, in the near future, one of the most important groups of customers able to significantly condition the products’ demand. In the lighting industry, the ‘age factor’ will be one of the latest aspects to take into account in order to design new generations of enabling projects. The HCL (Human Centric Lighting) is an innovative approach able to give value to both visual and non-visual light effects – i.e. emotions – that are still not considered for the current mass production. This paper introduces the HCL approach in lighting industry and, then, the processes of action-research used to design a new domestic lighting system. The HCL allowed to design a radically new product, with a set of focused technical-aesthetic solutions that make easier the light control by seniors.
