Innosol Manhattan Bright SAD Light Therapy Box Lamp - Designed by famous designer

Treatment Time 40 Minutes

INNOSOL ® Manhattan is designed by Pauli Partanen. The lamp has two functions: a design table lamp and a bright light therapy lamp. When used as a bright light therapy lamp, Manhattan provides 10 000 lux treatment or 2 500 lux at 72 cm. Manhattan features two different types of “facades”, the side of a skyscraper, or a clear geometric form. The form of a skyscraper is created by three rectangular “boxes” vertically, each one smaller than the one below. Manhattan is a versatile design lamp that softly disperses light. It can be used as an interior element, with dimensions that allow it to be placed in various spots.

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 Aurora 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.
