...the glass for well beeing
„Light is energy and information as well - content, form and structure. It provides the potential for everything."
David Bohm, quantum physicist and philosopher
The positive and vital effects of sunlight on humans are very well known. Light is only a small part of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun, which is visible to the human eye. Invisible ultraviolet radiation changes into visible violet radiation at a wavelength of 380 nm and continuously changes through blue, green and orange into red, where it is invisible for humans again from 780 nm.
When solar radiation passes through glazing the light's spectral distribution and intensity is changed. Previously the objective in glass technology was to allow the maximum proportion of light at 555 nm to optimally pass through the glass in order to improve the daylight vision of humans. However, recent investigations show that window glass, which achieves a higher propotion of transmitted light in the area of around 460 nm, has clearly vitalising effects on humans.
