BIOS Lighting and Pinnacle Architectural Lighting to team up at LIGHTFAIR 2017

Pinnacle to showcase product line Illuminated by BIOS and offer AIA accredited presentations 

April 18, 2017 – BIOS Lighting, a developer and industry leading innovator of circadian and horticultural LED lighting solutions, today announced it will team up with Pinnacle Architectural Lighting to provide AIA accredited presentations during LIGHTFAIR International 2017 in Philadelphia.  The sessions, which will be offered at 10a, 12p, 2p and 4p May 9 and 10, and 9:30a on May 11 at Pinnacle’s booth #239, will focus on circadian lighting and will be presented by BIOS VP of Human Biological Research and Technologies, Robert Soler. In addition, Pinnacle will showcase several new products Illuminated by BIOS technology, including the sleek and elegant LiFT.

Pinnacle’s LiFT, now available with BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology, is designed with clean lines and harmonious proportions and provides the ability to create clusters of light in any architectural space. BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology infuses blue sky spectrum into LED light to help individuals regulate and entrain their circadian rhythm, which enables the body’s biological clock to properly operate and manage critical functions including the production of testosterone, hormones, cortisol and melatonin. 

“At Pinnacle, one of our top goals was to be able to offer a true solution for Circadian Rhythm regulation,” said Chris Hammelef, President of Pinnacle Architectural Lighting. “Tunable white has been the perceived solution in the industry for so long. Now we need to educate everyone on BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology. That’s our main objective at LIGHTFAIR; to be able to educate as many influencers in the industry about our newest technological offering. BIOS is the technology for Circadian Rhythm regulation and together with Pinnacle, we’re able to offer the best solution in the Lighting Industry.”

Soler’s presentation will references peer-reviewed journals, proprietary research and real-world applications to clearly illustrate what participants should truly expect from circadian lighting. In addition, Soler will cover circadian design techniques to optimize biological impacts and provide information on real world health benefits. 

“Although few truly understand the science behind it, manufacturers are pushing specifiers, designers and architects towards color tuning lights for circadian regulation,” said Soler. “My presentations at the Pinnacle booth during LIGHTFAIR will provide an excellent platform to discuss the truth about circadian lighting and, with the help of fundamental science, explain how it is not color tuning, but something much more specific to our bodies’ biological needs. It is not just for shift workers, 24-hour facilities, or elderly care. Circadian lighting is necessary for every one of us.”

LIGHTFAIR International, the world’s largest architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, will be held May 9-11 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This three-day conference brings light, technology and design together to reveal new solutions, knowledge and discoveries to thousands of attendees, including design, lighting, architectural, engineering, energy, facility and industry professionals from the world.
