One of the Best lighted Houses in Finland

VL HouseIn Seinäjoki, Finland, there was a Jämerä-Stonehouse (made of aircrate) showing on 21.2.2009. What made that occasion very special, was the lighting of the house: the whole house was lighted with Viva-Lite fullspectrum daylight lamps, both compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and fluorescent tubes (FSL).

There is plenty of good light in the house which is very important because the family has children. Children need a lot of daylight to be able to develop in a good way. The lighting was carried out mostly indirectly by Viva-Lite fullspectrum lamps and tubes. The family is very satisfied with this lighting.
