A zonal, ceiling-integrated lighting concept instead of louvre luminaires
The lighting concept in the offices complies with Richard Kelly's lighting philosophy of creating atmosphere and using light only where needed. Upon entering the reception, the brightly lit back wall provides a warm welcome for clients and employees. This is ensured by Compar linear wallwashers which, with their compact external dimensions, blend almost invisibly into the ceiling and only come to the fore thanks to their outstanding lighting effect. For individual work at the reception desk, the Lucy task light emits wide distribution light and perfects the overall concept with its concise luminaire design. Wide-area general lighting is dispensed with in the meeting rooms; instead, nuanced light from the ceiling was installed. The combination of Compar linear downlights and wallwashers achieves high cylindrical illuminance levels. The vertical illumination of the walls at both ends of the room creates a pleasant impression of brightness and a wide perception of the space. Downlights with oval wide flood distribution illuminate the entire length of the table with their linear light beam and create uniform light for good facial recognition. In the offices, the light was installed according to zones and in relation to use. Bright vertical surfaces provide a high level of visual comfort, especially when working on screens. The walls illuminated by Compact recessed luminaires and Opton track-mounted spotlights reduce the brightness contrast between self-illuminated monitors and the surroundings, creating a calm environment for concentrated work. Compar downlights with excellent glare control and oval wide flood distribution support office activities and provide uniform, horizontal general light in the offices. Thanks to nuanced light distribution and efficient lens technology, only luminaires with a connected load of less than 20 watts are used.
