Seoul Semiconductor announced that its SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs has been awarded the German Innovation Award 2019 in the category “Lighting Solution”.
The award is presented by the German Design Council and it recognizes products and solutions from different industries that offer additional benefits and added value compared to the previous solution.
“Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight, delivering human-centric lighting (HCL) by reaching lower blue light peak similar to sunlight spectral curve possible to reduce scattered reflection and glare. The light sources with SunLike Series LEDs more accurately show the color of objects as they would appear in natural sunlight. It is optimized to natural light spectra and color rendering of CRI-97 – close to CRI-100 of sunlight, and higher than the CRI-80 of conventional LEDs,” the company said.
Co-developed through the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, the LEDs are also defined as “the light closest to the sun for human wellbeing.”
“We are proud that our SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs have been named as a winner of German Innovation Award 2019. This recognition confirms that light sources with SunLike Series LEDs certainly bring differentiated value compared to conventional LEDs to the lighting industry,” said Carlo Romiti, Europe sales vice president of Seoul Semiconductor.
In addition, according to a recent study conducted by Dr. Octavio L. Perez, an adjunct researcher in Integrative Lighting at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC, NY, USA, the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs have beneficial effects on human health and well-being. It was also revealed that the LEDs provide up to 21% more melanopic stimulus than conventional LEDs at 4000K, and the same melanopic stimulus as daylight at 6500K.
