In this paper a study is reported for investigating the effects of a lighting atmosphere on emotional expressiveness and cognitive processing. An experimental lighting atmosphere was created for hospital consultation rooms to better support the shared decision making process of patient and clinician. The lighting atmosphere consists of two phases: (1) indirect, dimmed-warm light (supporting emotional expressiveness) and (2) direct, cold-bright light (supporting cognitive processing). The ambient lighting atmosphere was compared with a standard office lighting atmosphere involving 54 male participants. Participants took part in the experiment in pairs. During the first phase, they watched two emotion inducing film fragments and then discussed these fragments with each other. Under warm-dimmed lighting conditions significantly more emotions were expressed with less negative valence. During the second phase, participants performed two cognitive tasks. No statistical significant effects of lighting condition on both attention and concentration tasks were found.
