WELLNESS TODAY: Why Sleep Quality Depends on Lighting Design  

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

Speaker: Deborah Burnett, Principal, Benya Burnett Consultancy

Guest room lighting specifications have a significant impact on sleep quality and next day productivity, mood, and behavior. Presented from a design perspective, easily absorb the biology as to why ambient light plays a critical role in delivering a GREAT night’s sleep and contributes to an enhanced WELLNESS experience.       

Deborah Burnett, ASID, CMG, LGC, AASM, is an international award-winning registered interior designer, a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the field of light and health, and a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. She is an active member of the IES and CIE Committees in photobiology, human health, and aging. A recent project, the ASID HQ in Washington, D.C., is the world’s first interior space to receive double Platinum level recognition in both the LEED v3 and WELL v1 certification programs. In part, this designation is the result of Deborah’s efforts in developing new professional practice benchmarks ensuring occupant biological protection consistent with American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines regarding the use of short wavelength-rich white light, a typical characteristic of LED light sources.
