Acoustic Lighting Overview

Did you know lighting can impact workplace productivity? The Mayo Clinic reports that glare and uncomfortably bright light are the two leading causes for eyestrain. An improved lighting design can result in a 23% productivity boost. Another thing that impacts workplace happiness and productivity: noise. It seems like independent offices have become a thing of the past with open space offices becoming the norm. With that comes a lot of noise. From phone conversations to typing, the sound bouncing off the walls and floors can be a distraction.

With many workers returning to shared office spaces, two things they likely didn’t miss much are the harsh lights and noises that make it hard to concentrate. Acoustic lighting addresses both these concerns with functional lighting that improves lighting and ambiance as well as performing as a buffer, absorbing sound. Similar to light, sound can also be reflected and absorbed. Acoustic lighting uses noise-reducing materials to absorb or block sound.

Beyond offices, acoustic lighting is ideal in noisy spaces such as restaurants, hotel lobbies, cafeterias, meeting spaces, cafes, and stores. At Seascape Lamps, each of our acoustic lighting fixtures offers a specific thoughtful design with the purpose of helping reduce noise. For example, our Luther acoustic pleated fixture material comes from recycled plastic bottles that absorb sound and reduce reverberation, which helps quiet noisy open-space environments, no matter the ceiling types.

Not only are acoustic lights functional, but they also come in a variety of designs to suit the aesthetic of any space. Noise-reducing lighting fixtures can also be installed out of the line of sight so they are unobtrusive. The main goal of acoustic lighting is to manage sound but, that doesn’t mean they have to look bad while doing it. Many feature energy-efficient LED lighting too.

Acoustic lighting combines function with aesthetics. If you’re interested in acoustic lighting for your business, office, school, or restaurant, Seascape Lamps can help.
