We live in a world where everything happens at high speed, where we hardly have time to rest and disconnect from our hectic day-to-day lives. Living a healthy life involves searching, finding and taking time for yourself. Stress has become the disease of the 21st century and a good way to combat it is through relaxation or wellness spaces. This new concept of healthy living is achieved by creating a balance between your mental, physical and emotional well-being.
Light plays an important role in this last state because, as you know, 80% of the information that human beings receive is transmitted through the sense of sight. This is why sensory perception through light is so decisive in our emotional balance. Today, treatments based on visual exposure through the use of colour — a technique known as chromotherapy — can help drastically improve our mood.
For this reason, spaces devoted to relaxation and rest need to be equipped with adequate lighting. Spas, saunas, rehabilitation spas or relaxation areas are purposefully located in different rooms to fulfil a specific function or treatment where water plays a major part.
At Lluria we are highly committed to your well-being, which is why we’ve developed the COUGAR and WOLF UNDERWATER IP68 systems, capable of meeting the needs of a complete underwater lighting project with more than ten different models in the range.
In general, the design projects of wellness spaces try to be formally ‘friendly’, with the curved line being a widely used design resource. With the Lluria COUGAR system you can adapt to any shape and surface as it allows you to bend the line of light horizontally or vertically, depending on the chosen model. In addition, its special thermal transmission PVC coating covers the entire printed circuit and its components, which ensures a high level of tightness and high impact-resistance, making the lighting project extra safe.
In relaxation areas where there is no great physical activity or water turbulence, we recommend warm colour temperatures between 1800K and 3000K. For this type of space, the COUGAR CO12 18-30 H model fits perfectly. This model also works great for enclosed rooms with poor ventilation such as saunas, where high levels of humidity are concentrated in the environment.
For areas with water courses or circuits, the CO12 RGB model is ideal. Its chromatic variation can be adapted to each type of body treatment, and you can set colour programmes at certain times that signal when an exercise has finished to move on to the next one. A light resource that promotes dynamism and interaction in wellness spaces.
However, there may be cases in which the same space is used for different activities, both rest and exercise. For these multi-purpose environments, you can opt for colour- or temperature-adaptable linear LED systems, such as the CO12RGBW and CO DW models respectively.
All Lluria COUGAR and WOLF linear LED systems offer perfect light uniformity as well as high resistance to chemical agents and UV radiation, which will guarantee their durability both indoors and outdoors.
Ultimately, the sensory experience will depend a lot on the way the light is projected. For this, the physical and sensory relaxation spaces must be correctly lit by installing professional products that offer flexibility and lighting alternatives. There’s a light for each space and for each of us. Let’s take care of our mind and time. Let’s take some well-deserved time to look after our health and well-being.
