Part 3 of 4

Lighting solutions play a considerable role in creating a balance between comfort and performance, having a direct impact on productivity and overall mood in an office environment. In order to create an ideal workplace atmosphere, there should be symmetry between natural and task lighting to increase alertness, creativity and satisfaction, while also broadening the aesthetic appeal and comfort of the space. 



From individual office to shared work spaces, communal break rooms and lobbies, lighting shapes a cohesive environment to ensure that individuals are content and performing at their best.
