The latest innovation by LIGHTGLASS was used in the renovation of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. An article from Metropolis Magazine explains that while most hospital rooms are lit from above, LIGHTGLASS’s clerestories fixtures function naturally by emitting their light from one side of the room.

The fixture itself is built like a small rectangular window. Rather than a fixture, the article attests that it could be considered an “architectural element at the intersection of architectural glazing and LED lighting.”

“LIGHTGLASS was able to help us achieve the circadian stimulus values throughout the course of the day;” Josh Butz, an electrical engineer who worked on the renovation, said. “It operates like daylight and feels like daylight, and being able to do that in the core of a building is fantastic.”
