Office Lighting


Deltalight’s Headliner 75 fitting offers an ideal way to comply with Part L building regulations, as the product can house either LED or Flourescent lights.


alongside natural light to encourage a comfortable environment as well as a highly energy efficient one; “It is essential in an office environment to facilitate working artificial with natural light whenever possible as it gives the ‘feel good factor’. It’s been shown to reduce eyestrain, increase productivity and even decrease absenteeism in the workplace,” explains Clifton.


“Professional lighting involves sufficient amount of light, proper distribution, diffusion


and absence of glare.” - Ian Streeter, at Deltalight


Ulysse Dormoy, Managing Director of Atrium, believes that office comfort can help to attract the right employees, so the look and feel of an office should be taken very seriously; “A lot has to be said about having the right working environment. As a result we have seen a significant shift in the use of decorative luminaries within commercial and office projects to soften the feel of a space.” Although decorative lighting might be seen as excessive in a space where energy consumption is a serious consideration, the falling price of


LEDs is making this a more suitable possibility. This is something that Dormoy thinks can only be on the rise; “We have seen a vast amount of development with LED light sources and it is not inconceivable to think that the future of office lighting will be LED-based. There are already some clients and projects where a high concentration of LEDs have been used. This does not appear to be a trend that is going to be reversed.” Atrium recently provided the lighting for the CB Richard Ellis London Head Office, Henrietta House. The design scheme was created by CBRE’s in-house design team, and placed specific emphasis on decorative lighting as well as practical lighting solutions. An emphasis on the aesthetic aspect of the office makes it


an attractive place to work, which makes it more appealing.


With the application of the right lighting technologies offices can be attractive, comfortable and appealing. A combination of aesthetics and practicality needs to be carefully considered to create the perfect working environment where employees will be content. After all, if we're going to be spending most of our time at the office, we want to make sure our setting is as comfortable as possible!

“Once a designer is happy with the quality of the luminaire and its LED lamp technology, how do they know it is going to work with the light control system that


they are using?” - Guy Simmonds, Head of Sustainable Solutions in Europe at Lutron.


Lighting in commerical buildings uses up a considerable amount of energy, so using an efficient lighting controls system, such as those provided by Lutron, can help businesses to save money.
