    Customer challenge

     

    Strijp-S is a nerve center for innovative businesses. The former Philips business park, located in the suburbs of Eindhoven, is being turned into an inner city centre. To add to the modern-day developments, Philips offered to equip an office there with the latest LED lighting.

    All of our preconceptions
    were cleverly dispelled

    about LED office lighting in one fell swoop with this ‘mock up’ in our workspace. This type of lighting truly constitutes a sustainable alternative to existing office lighting. And thanks to its attractive design, the room also looks much more attractive. It's a much better way of working, from every point of view.”

    The right lighting

     

    The borough of Eindhoven owns 50% of Strijp-S, and actively encourages innovative projects in the area. Dick de Geus, senior communications advisor to the borough, gave us an emphatic ‘yes’ when we approached him. However, he was curious as to whether we could dispel the many preconceptions about LED lighting, such as low light yields and un-atmospheric light.

     

    We put some office lighting ideas into action. The traditional TL-fittings in the office’s suspended ceiling were replaced by four DayZone light fittings, which gave the ceiling a new, more comforting appearance. To create an optimal working atmosphere, DaySign Solo was installed above the meeting table. This suspended LED fitting has an ultra-slim design, providing the right amount of light with its small beam.

     

    Along the wall, four Spot LED 3 fittings illuminate artworks superbly. Four LuxSpace LED downlights were built in to the ceiling of the corridor leading to the office. These fixtures create bright, glare-free light, and they use less energy than traditional bulbs. Dick de Gues was pleasantly surprised with the results, stating that “All of our preconceptions about LED office lighting were cleverly dispelled in one fell swoop”.

     

    The new lights were installed with presence-sensing devices, so they switch off automatically when noone is present. The new energy-efficient lights are delivering energy savings of 50%.
