||In a long-term study of the responses of office workers to daylight and artificial light, identical cell offices were equipped with a ceiling-based lighting system which workers could adjust as they wished. Preferred lighting levels were higher than current indoor lighting standards and corresponded to levels where biological stimulation can occur. Results for two occupants showed striking differences in lighting settings corresponding to individual circadian rhythms and performance. Lack of light may negatively influence alertness, performance and the degree of well-being.
