We are pushing the boundaries of lighting innovation with Power-over-Ethernet technology that allows luminaires to be hard-wired to a building’s data infrastructure. The new state-of-the-art office complex The Edge in Amsterdam is much more than a proof of concept: it’s a successful showcase of what smart lighting can achieve, and a harbinger of things to come.


In this Light Bite series Office lighting: to The Edge and beyond, you will see how the different project participants have contributed to and benefitted from the remarkable advances made at this spectacular office site:


     • Part 1, Deloitte:

Takes the point of view of the tenant. It looks at the reasons for choosing a connected office, how the data generated helps manage the premises, and the building’s impact on employee well-being and productivity. Presented by Erik Ubels, CIO at Deloitte Netherlands.


     • Part 2, OVG:

Focuses on the perspective of the real-estate developer. It looks at the drivers for investing in a connected office, the importance of sustainability, and how The Edge has delivered on its “smart” promise. Presented by Jan Hein Tiedema, Managing Director OVG Netherlands.


     • Part 3, Fokkema:

Highlights the standpoint of the interior architect. It explores how connected solutions affect a building’s internal architecture, how to factor in the necessary flexibility, and new design views and skills. Presented by Babette Bouman, interior architect at Fokkema & Partners.


Discover how smart, connected lighting can help transform an office building into a responsive, intimate environment where people can feel good and excel at what they do.
