Six Senses Home Office, Bangkok – 14 October 2013
There are many options for energy efficient lighting, but now we can choose lights that are also better for our health. LED lighting has always been among the best for energy efficiency and extended lifetime but scientists at Lighting Science are now able to use the unique physics of LED lighting to eliminate wavelengths of light proven by medical research to be bad for our health but present in almost every other source of electric lighting.
Six Senses’ commitment to the environment and guest comfort applauds the use of healthy, energy efficient lighting. Six Senses is spearheading the worldwide implementation of this unique technology to enhance the comfort of its guests.
The breakthrough innovative LED biologically-corrected Definity Digital Good Nightlighting solution by Lighting Science®, one of the largest LED manufacturers in the world, works with the body’s natural melatonin through a proprietary technology that emits less ‘blue’ light than other light sources. The result is a better night’s sleep and enhanced relaxation for guests.
The Good Nightlight bulb uses technology developed for the NASA and the International Space Station to enable astronauts to naturally manage their circadian rhythms rather than depending on chemical sleep aids.
Utilising similar patented technology , Lighting Science has also developed a companion light called the Definity Digital Awake & Alertlight bulb. It enhances the body’s natural alertness, and is appropriate for everyday use in the morning and for Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) and Delayed Sleep Phase Order (DSPD).
Six Senses is the first spa and hospitality company to feature this new lighting technology. Awake & Alertbulbs will be installed in all Six Senses gyms and exercise rooms. It is currently in a global rollout through their 26 Six Senses Spas and nine operating resorts.
Six Senses Spa at the Pacific City Club, Bangkok is the official launch setting of Definitely Digital Good Nightlight and Awake & Alert light. Visitors will be invited to experience the Good Nightlight in the nap room of the spa, where the benefits can be felt in only fifteen minutes.
Not only guests, but also the hosts of Six Senses will benefit from the comfort and wellbeing offered by the technology as the bulbs are implemented in offices and host areas of Six Senses resorts and spas.
Six Senses is proud to be the launch platform for Lighting Science another portfolio company of Pegasus Capital Advisors, L.P., a private equity firm committed to sustainability and wellness.
