The concept behind LYS started when Christina, founder, was still undergoing her dual Masters’ course at Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art. Having been pressured to work after hours with a deadline looming, she spent more time than usual inside the innovation lab at the university. It was during this period that she realised the ceiling halogen lighting in the space was both making her feel fatigued and at the same time curtailing her ability to fall asleep as she was used to.
Christina began researching the impact light intake has on our ability to concentrate, be energised and the quality of our sleep, and it was then when she came across research on circadian rhythms, social jet lag and the largely ignored global issue of sleep-wake disruption. That is when the concept and passion behind LYS Technologies were born.
