Enlightened by the sea! 

Glowee is a living lighting energy, coming directly from nature, at the crossroads of biomimicry and biotechnology, ready to revolutionize our way to produce, consume and light up!

what is bioluminescence?

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by some living organisms (such as fireflies, glow-worms, and over 80% of marine organisms). 

a living raw material that produces light

We develop a bioluminescent raw material made of micro-organisms that can grow indefinitely.

Our core business : biotechnology.

We engineer these micro-organisms to make them more efficient in terms of light production (intensity, stability, capacity) 

BIOLOGICAL LIGHT, AN ALTERNATIVE

TO ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING

reduce the environmental footprint of lighting

why?

  • save our limited natural resources, like rare metals, used in LEDs

  • reduce pollution generated by the production, consumption and end-of-life of traditional lighting systems 

how?

  • a raw material that can grow indefinitely

  • a light powered by unlimited or abundant resources

  • 100% organic byproducts that can be neutralized or revalorized

Pourquoi ? 

La pollution lumineuse affecte plus de 80% des habitants de notre planète.

 

Elle détruit les écosystèmes d’insectes, dérègle la chute des feuilles des arbres et la migration des oiseaux.

 

Elle a également des impacts sur la santé humaine, en perturbant nos systèmes hormonaux.

Améliorer le confort et le bien-être

Une lumière froide et douce pour réduire la pollution lumineuse

 

Une lumière non agressive pour réduire la pollution visuelle

 

Une lumière hypnotique aux vertues relaxantes et apaisantes 

improve comfort and well-being

why?

  • reduce light and visual pollution affecting more than 80% of Earth's inhabitants and destroying ecosystems and wildlife, disturbs insects, birds, and trees.

how?

  • a cool and natural light to reduce light pollution

  •  soft light to reduce visual pollution 

  • an hypnotic light with relaxing and soothing properties

Les ampoules sont des système de lumière ponctuelle

 

Notre matière première offre la possibilité de faire de la lumière surfacique ou volumique ouvrant ainsi le champ des possibles

offer new design possibilities for lighting

why?

  • bulbs are points of light. To make surfaces of light, the only solution is to multiply the number of bulbs (therefore multiplying pollution generating and energy consumption) 

  • design more attractive landscapes 

how?

  • a raw material that can take different shapes and states 

  • infinite possibilities to adapt this raw material to different needs and uses of lighting

In collaboration with energy companies, real estate companies, architects, landscape architects,  municipalities, artists, designers, builders or hotels Glowee answers your needs for sustainable lighting. 

Let's imagine together where we will be able to use bioluminescence!
