TIPS FOR WORKSPACE LIGHTING

Maintain the Same Colour Temperature
You should always look for balance when creating a modern office space. To achieve this, go for lights with the same color temperature. Installing bulbs of different color temperatures will create a boring work environment and kill the enthusiasm of the employees.
Working places need a lighting with a tonality of 4000 Kl, which is an active light that helps with concetration ate work.

Update to Efficient Lighting Models
Updating to efficient lighting models is a wise decision to lower down your office electricity bills.
Go for LED lights,  choose dimmable lights, install light colored fittings and fixtures as dark one absorb light.

Use the right amount of light
Use well-lit spaces especially on worktops where the light flux should be 300-750 lux.
For specific work environments such as technical drawing tables, the light flux should be from 700-750 lux.

Therefore, the lighting concept should not only be used to illuminate the work place, it must also:

  • provide a balance between natural and artificial light,
  • create a feeling of well-being,
  • make the difference ( identification, brand image)
  • be flexible and durable.

RECEPTION AREAS – Waiting areas

These spaces convey the image of the company, and reflect how the company works.
They are key-places of exchange and contacts: needless to say that the atmosphere and the lighting layout must be welcoming and comfortable, even “dramatic” depending on the desired effect.
The light is brighter there, to spontaneously attract and guide the visitor to the reception desk.
