Blys™ is a sleek modern light source, that sits on your bedside table, emitting a comforting, warm glowing light in the bedroom.
As a nightlight it provides a low-level glow which allows uninterrupted sleep, but on waking it provides a focus in a room, allowing items such as bedside lights, spectacles, water, phone, and other personal items to be easily identified without switching the main light on.
A low level of light from the tray provides an immediate focus and sense of security if wakened during the night, whilst preventing the shock experienced when turning on conventional lighting, or the frustration of finding the light switch.
It is controlled by means of a simple touch panel. Hand contact anywhere along the main edge of the unit switches it on or off, and the brightness can be adjusted by touching two small 'bright' and 'dim' zones. Blys™ remembers its previous light setting when it's switched off.
Blys™ provides nightlights for adults and was designed in collaboration with Designability (Bath Institute of Medical Engineering) as part of their 'SomnIA' research programme. Their findings show that older people are more likely to suffer sleep anxiety, resulting in sleep deprivation, than any other age group. Many people then end up leaving the light on all night which results in poor sleep quality, which can affect health, mood and can accelerate dementia.
The Blys™ nightlight is a practical, sleek looking bedroom accessory and may help those with insomnia. The nightlight uses very low energy and does not get hot allowing it to be left on during the day. It is scratch resistant and spill proof, you can even put your night time cocoa on it!
