In collaboration with principal tenants Deloitte and AKD, Babette Bouman led the interior design effort at The Edge. With Deloitte’s commitment to innovation and to using advanced data analytics to create responsive and sustainable environments, Bouman was given free rein to design the total office environment. Her concept included intelligent floorplans to enhance employee comfort and efficiency, flex workspaces, and the use of environmentally-friendly materials.
A key aspect of the office’s total sustainable design is a
state-of-the-art connected lighting system from Philips Lighting. The system integrates several cutting-edge technologies to enhance the flexibility of the open-plan office concept by allowing employees to personalize the lighting and temperature at their workspaces using a specially designed smartphone app.
