Lighting Science Leads Science & Design Panel at WantedDesign NYC

Showcasing Technological Advances in Human Health Lighting and High
Design Lighting Solutions

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GenesisDynaSpectrum–With New York Design Week upon us, don’t miss the truly ground-breaking
new products by Lighting Science® (OTCQB:LSCG) that will be on display
at WantedDesign at the Terminal Building from May 13-16. Lighting
Science, the leading LED innovators, are debuting two new products for
the Wanted audience, the Series A+™ and the Genesis DynaSpectrum™.

The Series A+™ Offers Designers Energy Efficiency and Greater
Control Over the Built Environment

The Series A+™ is a high-performance, specification-grade family of
lamps designed for discerning lighting clients. In addition to providing
superior dimming compatibility and the highest CRI possible, the Series
A+™ also boasts low power consumption and long life, surpassing Energy
Star and California Energy Commission requirements. From commercial and
retail environments to restaurants, hotels and art galleries, the Series
A+™ state-of-the-art color rendering will enhance colors in any setting.
For lighting designers everywhere, the Series A+™ opens up a new set of
tools that give greater control over mastering the built environment.

“Wanted Design is an ideal environment for us to connect top designers
and architects with the innovations taking place at Lighting Science,”
said Fred Maxik, Lighting Science’s Chief Technology Officer and
co-founder. “By utilizing next-generation LEDs, Series A+™ delivers
astounding color accuracy and efficiency-surpassing current industry
standard, once again reinforcing Lighting Science’s position as a true
leader in future of light.”

The Genesis DynaSpectrum™: The First Commercially-Available
Luminaire Designed to Enhance Both Sleep and Productivity

Also debuting at Wanted is the Genesis DynaSpectrum™ (Genesis), the
world’s first commercially-available luminaire designed to improve the
user’s health, sleep and productivity. Unlike traditional incandescent
and LED lighting, Genesis emits the appropriate spectrum of light
necessary to regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythm 24/7.

“In recent months, there has been increasing awareness that the bright
blue light emanating from our digital devices and TVs can cause sleep
disruption,” explained Maxik, “but few people realize that the lights
all of us have in our offices and homes cause the same problem, tricking
our brains into thinking that it is daytime. Delivered at the right
time, in the right spectrum, blue light can be very beneficial,
increasing productivity, cognitive function and reaction time up to 90
minutes after exposure. Inappropriate light exposure, however, actually
suppresses the night-time release of the sleep-inducing hormone
melatonin, making it difficult for people to fall—and stay—asleep.”

With optimal health in mind, Lighting Science developed Genesis, which
dynamically changes between Lighting Science’s biological LED spectrums,
the GoodDay™ – which enhances your natural energy and focus – and the
GoodNight™ – which promotes a healthy and restorative sleep. The
technology is derived from Lighting Science’s work with NASA on the
International Space Station where light spectrum was used to help
regulate circadian rhythms for astronauts who were experiencing 16
sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours. Today, thanks to Genesis,
everyone from professional athletes to corporations to individuals can
enjoy the many health benefits of appropriate light spectrum. Controlled
via easy-to-use app, Genesis can be programmed to deliver the right
light spectrum anywhere in the world—or the universe.

As currently designed, Genesis makes an ideal desk or bedside table
lamp. Because the lamp’s technology engine is located in its base,
however, it provides flexibility for creative new form factors and
applications. Lighting Science encourages designers excited about this
breakthrough technology to partner them to design and integrate around
the DynaSpectrum™ light engine.

Fred Maxik to Lead Science and Design Panel

Those interested in learning more about the future of light won’t
want to miss Fred Maxik who will be speaking on the Science &
Design panel on Saturday, May 14, from 12-1 p.m. Other panel
participants include James Ramsey, RAAD Principal and creator of
the Lowline, and David A. Edwards, Professor of the Practice of
Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University and founder of Le
Laboratoire, an experimental art and design center in Paris. The panel
will be moderated by Avinash Rajagopal, Metropolis magazine
Senior Editor. More info here.

The Series A+™ and Genesis will be on display in the Grimshaw gallery
adjacent to the main terminal hall. A living wall display, designed and
produced in collaboration with New York-based John
Distinctive Landscapes, will make for a glorious window display
where the true color of the living flora and fauna will come to life
under the spotlight of the Series A+™ bulb.

Please let us know if you can make the talk at noon on Saturday or if
you would like a guided tour of the fascinating new Genesis lamp. High
res images available upon request.
