January 30, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

January 30, 2023 – Acuity Brands Lighting Inc. has entered into an agreement with Biological Innovations & Optimization Systems LLC to participate in the latter’s BIOS Illuminated partnership program.

“What makes BIOS technology special is that it emulates the make-up of nature’s lighting spectrum, resulting in lighting products that human bodies respond to,” said Deepak Savadatti, BIOS Lighting.

In connection with this agreement, BIOS (a NASA spin-off) will sell to Acuity certain human-centric LED lighting components for use in its architectural lighting fixtures for wellness. Acuity will also have the worldwide right to use the BIOS trademark for marketing and promoting these lighting fixtures that include BIOS SkyBlue technology.

“We continue to see a growing demand and business case for design strategies and technologies to promote wellness,” said Rick Earlywine, Acuity Brands Lighting. “BIOS technology, such as SkyBlue circadian lighting LED technology, is known and accepted in the market, and can be incorporated into Acuity Brands products with relative ease using already-developed light engines and control interface components.”
