    The right lighting


    We delivered a variety of innovative solutions featuring new intelligent lighting, giving SAS's customers the best possible experience and ensuring they feel energized for their trip. The new lounge features a Daylight Booster, which imitates daylight, to improve energy levels and reduce the risk of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the Luminous pattern wall lighting – an embedded lighting solution that can be customized to create an endless variety of shapes and patterns. Guests can also enjoy the lounge’s three rooms featuring six different lighting settings: the Philips Hue lighting can be easily adjusted to support tasks such as reading and concentration or softened to create a relaxing atmosphere.

    Boost well-being


    The new lighting in the SAS lounge allows guests to energize before their travel and offers them a space to relax and recharge before taking off.

    The embedded lighting on the wall delivered in the form of Luminous Patterns wall and Philips Hue rooms with customizable light settings, create a unique and welcoming atmosphere. Guests of the new SAS Lounge experience a comfortable and revitalizing stay before their flight or during a layover.
