Red dot design-award 2010 winner - Recognized Finnish designer Eero Aarnio created the figurative form of three cubes of different sizes, a lamp with two functions in one: a designer table lamp and a bright, light therapy, lamp.

When used as bright light therapy lamp KUBO provides 10 000 lux treatment or 2 500 lux at 46 cm and 5000 lux at 30cm. According to studies bright light therapy has proven to increase vitality and energy levels during the wintertime.


The lamp can be placed on the floor or table and can be easily used for reading. Clear geometric lines and playful design of Kubo create an enjoyable atmosphere and a softly dispersed light.

The Society for Light Treatment and Biological Rhythms (SLTBR) recommends light therapy as the best non-drug therapy to treat seasonal depression.

 


 

Light levels determine the sleep / wake cycles of both animals and humans. The desire to sleep is brought on by the secretion of Melatonin, and the bright natural light or the light from a SAD lamp significantly reduces Melatonin, greatly improving our energy levels. Typical symptoms of SAD are depression, lethargy, anxiety, craving, social problems, sleep problems and loss of libido. These symptoms can be commonly resolved through the use of The Kubo SAD light box.

Light therapy has been proved effective in up to 85 per cent of diagnosed cases of Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. For more information about Seasonal Affective Disorder and its Treatment please read our FAQ page.

When's the best time to use the Sunny light box?

Most people find that light therapy in the mornings works best so, if you are just starting out, try this first. Try not to use your light late in the evening though (i.e. within 3 hours of going to bed) as you may find it difficult to get to sleep.

If you have trouble waking up in the mornings then you should definitely use a light box first thing.
