Philips lights ups new old office
The space in the renovated offices is designed according to the Activity Based Workspace concept
POLAND After ten years in the Philips House office building at Al. Jerozolimskie 195B in Warsaw, the company has now transformed its working area.
The renovated office showcases the company’s technological capabilities through the creation of ergonomic and fully interactive work space. Xplan was the general contractor of the project. The internal processes also have an experimental aspect: employees can test products and systems developed by the company on an everyday basis to arrive at a better understanding of customers’ needs and how to install the products more effectively. The newly arranged office also functions as a showroom.

With its experience the company can now also provide consultancy services as well as deliver completed projects. This allows clients to relocate to offices fitted out in the most convenient way for them to improve their work culture and motivate their staff. The space in the Warsaw office of Philips Lighting has been planned according to the Activity Based Workspace concept. In the focus rooms tasks can be carried out that require the most concentration.

The office also includes telephone booths. Desks have been situated near windows and with glass dividing walls to provide everyone with equal access to daylight. The office also features the latest generation of lighting – Human Centric Lighting, which is based on the idea of adjusting the light to individual users’ needs. It not only factors in the physiological differences between employees but also the variety of the tasks they have been entrusted with.

“The most common error in Polish offices is using one type of lighting for the entire area, without adjusting the light for the various forms of activity or the age of the employees (older ones need more light). The quality of the light is also an issue. You need to take into consideration the UGR or unified glare rating. If it is too high on the scale, vision problems or even sight impairment can occur,” explains Dorota Sławińska, Philips Lighting’s spokesperson. One interesting feature is the option of controlling the type and the volume of music in the toilets via a special app that also controls the lighting.
