Get a grip on lighting

Henrik Clausen, Director of Fagerhult Lighting Academy (FLA) at Fagerhult, has been invited by US-based National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) to host a series of podcasts with different aspects regarding light and its impacts on humans.

As Director at Fagerhult Lighting Academy, Henrik Clausen leads and strives to expand the research activities and knowledge base within the areas of lighting and human health. Qualities of various lighting conditions have been discovered to have a profound impact on human health. Henrik is at the forefront of lighting application, embedding scientific knowledge and a deep understanding of the human health and psyche into the best possible lighting imaginable, perceivable, and measurable. 

In addition to this work, Henrik holds the position of Associate Professor at Aalborg University in Copenhagen delivering a Master in Lighting Design where he is responsible for the delivery ”real life” engineering and industry knowledge to students. Occasionally he also guest lectures at other Universities, e.g. first year-year architecture students at Cambridge University UK on the history of artificial lighting in the built environment. 

In this podcast, “Get a grip on lighting”, he meets with different people from over the globe with one common bright interest – light.

– This is really a splendid opportunity, for me and all “fellow lighting nerds” to be able to learn more about light, lighting and lighting design, and how it influences our lives, says Henrik Clausen. For each episode I have the great pleasure of meeting a person that is as passionate about light, as myself, and learn from their experiences and share thoughts on light – and the influences it has had in their lives. 

You'll find the episodes here Get a grip on lighting and also listed below.

Enjoy listening!
