How to plan flexible office environments: downlights for track

Attractive co-working spaces for creative communities and cool, industrial-style loft offices: new approaches to modern working environments are increasingly taking the place of classic single or open-plan offices. This is not only accompanied by changed needs in terms of design; flexibility is part of the DNA of modern offices. They must enable agile work and cooperation, be it for individual or group work or else informal discussions over coffee. This in turn requires different workstation constellations that can be quickly adapted to new teams. Particularly in times of social distancing, table arrangements and entire office layouts need to be rethought – and, concurrently, the lighting. Downlights for track are the ideal solution to the need for adaptability required by today's modern working environments.

That's Jilly. The perfect light for modern offices.

Flexible, unconventional and yet standard-compliant office workplace lighting: Jilly downlights for track. Be inspired – discover the most flexible way to illuminate modern co-working spaces.

This is why you should implement your next office project with downlights for track:

Light for modern offices

Flexible and future-proof lighting design
Open co-working spaces can only be as flexible as their infrastructure permits. Changeable furniture layouts mean that the lighting must also be flexibly adaptable. The luminaires bring together the high visual comfort of downlights with the flexibility of spotlights. Instead of being rigidly mounted to ceilings the luminaire sits in a track, and is therefore also ideal for modern loft offices with open bare ceilings. If the configuration of the desks changes the downlights can be repositioned without tools in just a few simple steps. Discover an unprecedented flexibility for your planning of flexible offices.

Work more productively through high visual comfort
Qualitative lighting design creates a positive feeling for space and therefore improves the work of each individual. Specifically targeted at individual work areas, light is only used where it is needed. In contrast to conventional LED louvre lighting, less luminaires are required and energy savings of around 50% are the result. The luminaires set workplaces in a pleasant light and achieve good illumination of faces – ideal for online meetings. Wide light distributions provide standard-compliant light for working (UGR<19). Design light that promotes well-being and productive work.

Light for modern offices

Perfect quality of light
For focused individual work, informal discussions in a corner seating area or team meetings: downlights for track adapt to any work situation thanks to simple mounting and flexible repositioning – and without compromises in terms of quality of light. The luminaires feature various light distributions for different furniture arrangements and work tasks, four colour temperatures, a high colour rendering index (CRI), 1.5 SDCM and uniform distribution of brightness. Plan lighting concepts with maximum quality of light.

Light for modern offices

Control wirelessly
The flexible character of downlights for track is also reflected in the control options: the luminaires can be individually switched and dimmed, wirelessly via Casambi Bluetooth. Light scenes for single workstations or group settings in offices can be simply set up and sensors for daylight and motion quickly integrated. You control and programme your luminaires simply with your tablet or smartphone via the Casambi app. Discover new design possibilities with radio control which in the past required complex lighting control systems.
