Lighting Design

We plan and design modern technology for intelligent buildings in harmony with the architecture and the user's needs. For intelligent buildings adapt dynamically both to the user's needs and to the surroundings.

Building automation must therefore be planned holistically and include all the technical sub-sections of the building from the very beginning. Intelligent buildings provide added value which is unattainable with conventional design philosophies: comfort and convenience, together with significant economic and ecological benefits.

You are planning to buy a new building. We are able understand your architect's drafts and plans. Together with you we can define how you wish to use the building and define the requirements which you wish the building to fulfill.

On this basis we design and plan modern and intelligent building technology for your Smart Building. Building technology which meets your needs almost to perfection and which you can operate easily. 

The world of automation is becoming increasingly complex. Networks and systems are linked and growing together. We are a reliable partner at your side when faults arise, whether for new installations or after commissioning.

We focus on the instruments of light, automation and software. Light gives form to architecture, automation provides comfort and convenience and increases the economic benefit of smart buildings.

During the planning phase the user should always bear simple maintenance of the lighting installation in mind. It saves time and money if you can make adjustments yourself. But to do this you need expert knowledge.

Human Centric Lighting, or HCL, is the English term for lighting which takes into account the non-visual effects of light. This current area of research, which focuses in particular on the influence of optical radiation on the health of humans, is exposed to two threats: on the one hand, being appropriated by very aggressive marketing from the lighting industry and, on the other hand, being hindered by critics who quickly sense a threat in any kind of progress.

The positions held by protagonists in industry or involved in research or health and safety are all perfectly easy to understand. For the lighting industry HCL means new selling points and market potential now that the transfer from conventional light sources to LEDs, driven by efficiency considerations, has almost been completed.

The added value of HCL products with the digital controls required is very welcome and, together with operating interfaces, creates an opportunity for strategic innovative market placement. Agents and media looking out for catchy new trends have very gratefully latched on to this topic.

At the service of marketing

Manufacturers rely on science to provide ammunition for their marketing campaign. However, science and marketing do not speak the same language. Positive and unambiguous messages to promote sales are legitimate tools in marketing whereas scientist always weigh up, differentiate and question options and do not always agree with each other. Marketing experts find this very difficult to deal with.

Yet the latest insights into the non-visual effects of light gathered by scientists in chronobiology, sleep research and light medicine are really very promising and of great relevance to the planning of living and working spaces.

Certain insights, such as the positive effect of light which copies the white hue and intensity of natural light over the course of the day, are now accepted and proven knowledge: the concentration and performance of schoolchildren improves, patients suffering from dementia calm down and have better orientation. 

However, there is a need for much more research when it comes to complex physiological interactions, the reciprocal effects of different types of illumination and the question of how, over an extended period of time, HCL influences the change in the circadian rhythm of, for example, shift workers.
