Our circadian rhythm is also known as our biological / internal clock. It is a 24 hour cycle that regulates our sleep and awake time, and our routines such as eating, brain wave activity, hormone production, cell regeneration and other important biological processes. A healthy circadian rhythm is foundational for overall mental and physical health. Unfortunately artificial light has brought disruption to our circadian rhythm.
Today's widely adopted artificial light sources, such as LED and incandescent, have brought many benefits such as extending productive time and seeing more clearly indoors, but it comes with a cost. It disrupts our circadian rhythm which has been linked to medical issue such as depression, obesity, certain forms of cancer and cardiovascular disease. It is also associated with sleep disorders such as insomnia.
In theory we were better off rising and setting with the sun. But, not any more.
Welcome to the revolution in lighting, OLED light technology!
OLED technology is used in every one of Nadarra's OLED light fixtures. OLEDs are safe in the way they deliver all wavelengths of light, including blue light, which is known to offer the greatest disruption to our circadian rhythm.
OLED IS THE HEALTHY CHOICE.
Deliver the light levels you need at intensity well below any risk for damage
OLEDs pose no risk for skin and eyes and are rated as exempt for all photobiological risks
OLEDs are a full spectrum light source, eliminating the negative attributes of most artificial lighting solutions such as glare, UV, shadows and flicker.
An artificial light source that mimics the sun even when you are stuck inside all day.

Eat Well. Move Well. Live Well.
At Nadarra we are all about an overall healthy lifestyle. Eating right, exercising, and mindfulness are just the beginning. What about having a complete understanding of the impact of our surroundings on our health? As society progresses we continue to manipulate indoor spaces to fit our definition of a beautiful and productive space. When new advancements come out, it often takes time to understand the negative health impact - think lead paint and asbestos! We are starting to see similar health deterioration from artificial light.
OVERALL WELLNESS THROUGH HEALTHY SPACE DESIGN.
If we simply eat right and exercise but then go spend our day under harmful artificial light, which exposes us to high levels of blue light, ultraviolet radiation, disrupts our circadian rhythm, has harsh glare, shadows, and flicker leading to migraines, eye strain, fatigue, nausea, distraction, neurological problems, and even vision loss, we are not truly living our healthiest life possible.
We are not going to go back to the days of rising and setting with the sun, so why not focus on designing indoor spaces to be mindful of health and well-being? With OLED light technology, artificial light can now be healthy. It is one more puzzle piece to living a lifestyle rooted in health & wellness.
EMOTION & MOOD
POSITIVITY. HAPPINESS. SUNSHINE.
Access to natural light improves our mood. That's why professionals recommend opening your blinds first thing in the morning, having your morning cup of coffee on the front porch, or getting outdoors for at least thirty minutes a day. Full spectrum lighting, such of that of the sun, reveals the true colors of the world that surrounds us leading to a more positive, healthy mindset. In today's world we spend much of our time indoors. Lack of access to natural light, especially in the winter months is what leads to seasonal depression and other mental ailments.
OLED LIGHT IS A BROAD SPECTRUM LIGHT SOURCE BRINGING THE OUTDOORS IN.
OLED has broad spectrum features such as that of the sun, so it provides us with lighting that resembles daylight even when we are indoors. Exposure to natural light has been directly linked to how we feel. With Nadarra Lighting's use of OLED technology, we can feel good!
