Lightscapes’ project for Lund Kommune in Sweden shows how intelligent lighting design helps to improve eating habits, reduce food waste and create a welcoming and attractive eating environment.
A research project through Lighting Metropolis with the aim of creating a more pleasant eating environment for school children that should result in less food waste – a new approach that can be applied in other renovation or new-build projects.
The dining rooms were refurbished at Dalby School in Lund, Sweden and Lightscapes stood for the design of dynamic lighting that adjusts according to the time of day – giving a daylight boost at breakfast time in the dark Scandinavian winter and creating calm in the afternoons.
The lighting design also supports better flow through the canteen and to create a better eating environment, which will encourage the pupils to spend more time eating. The space was opened up to allow better daylight ingress and artificial lighting was used to create various spaces within the rooms.
