Lighting

Light serves as the basis of our visual perception.
It enables us to see colours, shapes and spaces, and turns out to be one of the most important interior design elements.

Light creates moods and atmospheres, putting colours and materials in the limelight. Light establishes the quality of interaction and transmits corporate culture. Modern lighting concepts support the creation of ambiences at the workplace that best harmonise with the activities, the time of day and year, and personal well-being. The goal of artificial illumination is to get as close to this ideal as possible. In order to design a room in a simultaneously functional and aesthetic manner, multiple sources of light are always necessary. The uniform, bright illumination of a room supports orientation. Additional lighting intentionally emphasises specific objects and creates a high degree of brilliance.

Lighting in the office must ensure optimal illumination and the best working conditions. At the same time, it should inspire communication and promote perception.
 

Good lighting promotes well-being and performance

Planning and Design: Good Illumination

Individually adjusting light to activity leads to an increase of 13% in information reception.
 

Energy - Efficiency

It’s worth considering energy and efficiency in illumination because we should take advantage of the opportunity to save energy with efficient lighting solutions. Energy-reducing technologies with modern sensors and intelligent user controls take energy savings to a whole new level.
Experience shows that integrated daylight and motion sensors can significantly reduce power consumption. Compared to conventional solutions, intelligent systems save energy by up to 50%.

The advantages of floor lamp concepts versus built-in installations rest primarily in their flexibility, better light quality, lack of glare and lower costs.
 

Light Planning and Ligh Measurement

Together with our partners, we record your requirements on site, analyse these with a view to energy efficiency and lighting quality, thereby defining lighting concepts whose implementation guarantees the right solution for high cost efficiency and motivation.
 

Planning Factors

  • Daylight
  • Illumination intensity
  • Basic illumination
  • Avoiding glare
  • Arrangement of the workplace
  • Monitor placement
  • Direct / Indirect illumination
  • Lighting zones
  • Workplace illumination
  • Illumination as a design element

 

Parameters for Lighting Planning

Illumination level
The level of illumination is very important for visual perception. Higher illumination intensities increase performance and reduce error rates and the risk of accidents.

Harmonious distribution of brightness
The distribution of lighting intensity within a space should be neither too varied nor too uniform. Contrasts that are too extreme can lead to visual distractions, and overly uniform lighting intensities can make a room monotonous and unattractive.

Glare
Direct or indirect glare significantly disrupts visual perception. The work area should be optimally illuminated with a bright yet glare-free light. The top priorities are utility and light quality, which contribute to an increase in comfort, well-being, and the ability to concentrate. Individual adjustability leads to performance optimisation and influences metabolic processes.

Light direction and shadows
Is achieved with a balanced relationship between diffuse and focused illumination; both harsh shadows and the absence of shadows impede vision.

Lighting colour and colour reproduction
Provide information about the lighting attributes of lamps. The light colour is divided into three groups on the basis of spectral composition: warm white (1), neutral white (2) and daylight white (3). The colour reproduction index describes how naturally the colours in the environment are reproduced by the light of a lamp. The same colours look different in light with different colour reproduction characteristics.
