A Light That Mimics Nature: Light Cognitive’s Award-winning Design

Light Cognitive won with its design for a light that mimics nature and brings the benefits of natural light into any space regardless of the time of year.

“This project addresses the importance of light in our lives. It is not so much about the form and shape, but more about human reactions and interventions within a space. It's about the light, not the lamp itself.” – Head Judge Margriet Vollenburg
Light Cognitive’s sales have grown this year despite coronavirus, and the company has gained new international customers. Demand is now global, in addition to the company’s current market area in Europe. The company believes that Light Cognitive artificial skylights are a significant way to upgrade windowless spaces and basements, both in homes and businesses.
“We are very honoured to get this recognition. Our goal is to bring beautiful light and clear skies within everyone's reach.” – Marketing Director Anne Salomaa
Retail design has been a new growth area for Light Cognitive. The company was shortlisted for the Architectural Lighting Design award for their new circular skylight, LC Oculus, which had its debut in a retail project in Barcelona. The “oculus” was originally a circular opening found at the top of a dome in Ancient Roman architecture. Light Cognitive’s unique artificial skylight creates a similar feeling of openness and allows guests at a windowless shop to feel a connection to nature.
