In the meantime, deprived northerners will have to grab light where and when they can.

A touch of medieval magic can’t be wrong – if you do it tastefully! This elegant fixture will make your home feel like a castle and add a perfect dose of drama. One is great as an accent piece – or light up a whole staircase with multiple fixtures for a truly decadent and delightfully renaissance feel.

No sanctions will be lifted until North Korea has completely denuclearised, says Mike Pompeo.

People inhabiting the far northern hemisphere are particularly vulnerable, forced to endure long, dark winter nights and sometimes only seeing the sun for three quarters of an hour per day in December.

For Jana Tumova and Iolanda Leite, a woman’s place is in the lab. This episode’s guests explain what it’s like to be women working in the robotics field and whether a robot invasion really is just around the corner.

One great way to spice up boring beige walls – without upsetting your landlord – is to add a pattern to your lighting. The bars of this unique little lamp leave plenty of space for the light to radiate outwards, but also contribute texture to the surroundings without being jarring. 

One place in Sweden that has embraced this idea is Dragonskolan school in the northern town of Umea.

Women and those with foreign-sounding names earn less in Sweden: report

Working with collaborators in Sweden, the plan is to automatically send the data collected by the Daysimeter to a central control hub based at home.

It’s another QAZQA design; founder Erik Jansen was inspired by a lamp his dad made over 75 years ago especially for kids, and he’s devoted to making his own fun designs to continue the legacy. Luckily so for us kids-at-heart!

Is it just us or does this ceiling lamp look a bit like a tasty green veggie used for dips and pizza? Or perhaps a porcupine?

At its heart is a device known as a Daysimeter, which was developed by a team led by Professors Mark Rea and Mariana Figueiro.

“It feels like it’s 12 in the middle of the night. You just want to skip school and stay in bed. You want to do your best in school and be a good student. But at the same time you don’t feel like you have the energy.”

The corridors and other rooms that are conventionally lit are Stygian in comparison.

“It’s too early to say whether grades will be better but what I’m hoping for, of course, is improved attendance and improved results,” says Stellan Andersson, headmaster of the 2,000-student Dragonskolan.

…like in a cube, for example. Accent lighting shouldn’t be overthought, but it should be thoughtful – these little fixtures are a subtle but stylish alternative to traditional wall sconce lighting. The three-pronged pattern emitted from the cube adds texture and depth to any room without being overpowering. 

“It can be worn on the wrist or around the neck and continuously records and stores data for measuring circadian light-dark patterns.”

Or, if you’re a fan of flower power but want to keep things glamorous, there’s nothing quite like coloured glass flowers sprouting from the ceiling. Even better, put a vase with fresh flowers on a table directly below for a slightly surreal but always elegant Alice in Wonderland, world-turned-upside-down experience.

“Disruption of a regular, daily pattern of light and dark can lead to poor sleep, fatigue and decreased performance,” says Prof Figueiro.

Either way, statement pieces like this are great conversation starters. Put one in your living room and you’ll never have to fish around for small talk when guests come over – they’re sure to say something!

“It can also contribute to poor health ranging from obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease to certain forms of cancer.”

But relief could be on its way, with researchers exploring a range of projects that could bring light to the wider population.

Donald Trump said he achieved a lot in his meeting with Kim Jong-un. Really?

The lights are also much brighter, which has been shown in previous studies to increase alertness throughout the day.

Humans are programmed to wake and sleep on a roughly 24-hour cycle, and the timing is regulated by exposure to light.

Now here’s some light(n)ing with attitude. This fun wall lamp is perfect for children’s rooms, but also a sassy addition for any fan of  pop art, neon signs, Las Vegas, Grease Lightning, thunder storms, Bolt the dog, Harry Potter…the list goes on!

Tired of having the same Ikea floor lamp as all your friends?

Decadence isn’t your cup of tea? Sometimes the best route is to keep things simple. This fixture is humble and plain, but the polished brass acts as an accent in any dark colour scheme.

Bad puns aside, Dutch brand QAZQA has been providing quirky, elegant, and high-quality lightning fixtures for years. There are hundreds of models available – and dozens on sale right now – but here are a few of our personal favourites! 

“But also people who have problems coming up in the morning during the dark period. Because we know that in those countries far from the equator such as Sweden, we have a need for light especially in the morning.”

Unlike standard lighting that tends to give off a yellow hue, the so-called “full spectrum” lights installed in these classrooms give off a greater proportion of blue wavelengths.

The device is now being developed further as part of the “Healthy Homes” project.

The power of light Image copyright SPL Image caption A lack of morning light can have a serious effect on health.

If a person turns out to have received either too much or too little sunlight, a smart system will adjust the lighting in the home to compensate.

Time for a change at home? Want to look at things in a different light, perhaps?

“If you get light in the late afternoon or evenings, then you are shifting your body rhythms to the other direction, which is pathological. And that’s going to cause you problems.”

In places where sunlight is in short supply, bright electric lighting delivered at the right time of day can act as a substitute.

While the students hope to keep bleary eyes at bay, the Healthy Homes researchers plan to kit out the first experimental home within two years, although it could be a decade before the system becomes widespread.

However, Dr Baba Pendse, a senior consultant psychiatrist at Skane University Hospital in Malmo, south Sweden, warns against excessive use at the wrong time of day because it keeps the body wide awake, when it should be slowing down in preparation for sleep.

They have installed full spectrum lights in seven of their classrooms with the hope that it will help increase alertness and reduce fatigue in its students.

“During winter you feel tired and it doesn’t feel like it’s seven in the morning,” says one student, Carl Frederik Valverius.

Industrial meets hipster in this simple wall lamp. It’s got a rough, unpolished, no-frills look while still being soft with its round back plate and curved bulb. This lamp is perfect for task lighting or just to add some warmth to an otherwise cool scheme. 

Ceiling fans all kind of look the same, don’t they? Not this one. It retains hints of the classic shape, but with shorter blades and a soft spiraling shape, it’s more reminiscent of a flower than a windmill. 

Fellow student Viola Asbaghi agrees: “I come to school when it’s dark, and go home when it’s dark. I never see the light in winter and feel permanently tired.”

But in the depths of winter with its almost constant fog of darkness, a supreme effort is required to escape the shackles of the duvet and central heating.

There’s some real electricity between Adam and Eve! You feel better already, right? These adorable little lamps are made by QAZQA, a brand that aims to make “being unique” accessible for all. Plus, constantly seeing a little helper with a lightbulb for a head is sure to inspire some bright ideas of your own! 

The lights were the gift of a local renewable utility company and run from stored solar energy harvested during a heatwave in July and August last year.

The dancing multi-coloured light shows of the Aurora Borealis aren’t sufficient compensation for the absence of the sun.

Prof Laike is collaborating on the Healthy Homes project and will be testing the lighting system’s effectiveness in Sweden.

In December the sun shines on average for just 45 minutes a day in Umea.

These have been shown to have a greater effect on regulating the body clock if delivered early in the morning. It works by suppressing the production of the hormone melatonin, which causes drowsiness.

‘I’ve felt the responsibility of society on my shoulders for a year’

“I feel sharper, more alert, more focused,” says Carl Frederik Valverius, also 18.

Previous studies have shown that exposure to bright light can have a marked affect on alertness.

Prof Laike believes architects also need to re-examine and perhaps re-employ the building standards of the 19th century when designers were obliged to maximise the amount of daylight penetrating schools and factories.

The town prides itself on its museums and the proximity of outdoor activities like dog sledding and cross country skiing.

Shabby chic is a huge trend in interior design lately, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon. So embrace it – this birdcage pendant lamp is a perfect addition. 

There’s nothing like a little interior design to brighten up a brisk winter day! Here are 11 beautiful – yet affordable – European light fixtures bound to leave you in awe.

Excessive sun exposure is bad for our health. But sun deprivation is also harmful – contributing to ailments from depression to disturbed sleep, obesity and even cancer.

“It’s nice. It’s much brighter. I feel rejuvenated,” whispers Viola Asbaghi, 18, during a tough English exam in room C151, at just after nine in the morning, when it’s still dark outside.

We love the way this lamp works as a spotlight in the middle, while still emanating slices of warm light from deep within its leaves. Ambient lighting at its best!

The Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York is developing a system that could transform people’s homes and lives by regulating the amount of light to which they are exposed.

“The Daysimeter is a personal light and activity sensor,” says Prof Figueiro, who works at the Lighting Research Center.

By rebalancing an individual’s light exposure, the idea is to help people maintain a more normal and healthy circadian rhythm.

“We anticipate that this will make it easier for people, especially people working within shift work, to have better lighting solutions in their home,” says Prof Laike.

This unique, heavyweight floor lamp of wood and steel is ideal for task accent lighting – quite literally putting the spotlight wherever you like. Remember what we said about statement pieces? This is definitely one!

At Lund University, in southern Sweden, Prof Thorbjorn Laike shows off what he calls an “artificial sun”, a collection of bright bluish lights that wouldn’t look out of place in a giant’s dentist surgery.
