The hypothesis for this assignment is that by designing
a task light for students in elementary schools, learning
will be supported and it will help the students to focus
and concentrate better in class.
Therefore, the problem statement for this project has
been: How can a task light be designed that both operates
in a flexible classroom while improving the learning and
lighting environment for the students?
Based on a case study conducted around a full-scale
experiment at Grøndalsvængets School in 2012, the
implemented lighting facilities have been studied. This
study has shed knowledge on various problems regarding
lighting and learning in the implemented facilities,
and which has formed the basis for an exploration of
children’s need for light in the learning environment.
Based on this collected knowledge, a task light has been
designed and developed to function in the contemporary
learning environment. To make the lamp as flexible as
possible, it is powered by a battery and has a lighting system
where the light intensity and the colour temperatures
can be controlled individually by the student. Lighting
can thus perform in accordance with the students’ own
needs and preferences for lighting quality during their
daily school activities and in line with the changing of
seasons and the student’s different placement in the class.
With the implementation of this lamp in the learning and
lighting environment, there will be improved learning
and environmental benefits for the student.
