About Us

BIOS is a biology-first company.

We inspire, educate and innovate the world through a biology-first approach to light.

Natural light is the essence of life itself, a biological necessity for the growth and well-being of plants and humans alike. At BIOS, we create biological lighting solutions that bring the natural brilliance of the outdoors where it’s needed most-for human health, plant growth, and beyond.

As a team of former NASA scientists, defying limits is in our DNA. During our time with NASA, we created technologies that provide astronauts with the natural light they lack during space exploration. But our drive to build biological lighting didn’t end there. Today, we’re using these discoveries to redefine what’s possible for human and plant life here on Earth.


BIOS lighting is a NASA spin-off that launched in 2014 on the Florida Space Coast. Our roots have deep ties to the Space Life Sciences Lab (SLSL) and Kennedy Center where the team led lighting projects to grow plants in space and to help astronauts regulate sleep patterns on the International Space Station where the sun rises and sets every 90 minutes orbiting the Earth.

The BIOS team is made up of movers and shakers. From experienced global executives to subject matter experts from NASA, BIOS has the team that is revolutionizing lighting and building a brighter future.
