Marijke Gordijn in the NRC newspaper

On February 19th, an interesting article was published in the Dutch newspaper NRC with Marijke Gordijn, Board member of the Good Light Group. It describes the importance of good light in office environments. Lighting is often treated as of low importance in offices, but good light can have an enormous influence on sleep quality, alertness during daytime and mood.
