Pharmaceutical companie Medice, Iserlohn
Implementation: April 2019
The company invested in a new administrative building at its Sauerland facility in Germany. During the planning, special attention was paid to the lighting concept.
Medice is one of the most successful family-owned pharmaceutical companies in Germany. As an independent entity, the medium-sized company has been developing, producing and marketing top-quality medicinal products in 34 countries for 70 years. The company is on a continuous course of growth and has therefore invested in a new administrative building at its Sauerland facility in Germany. Apart from a clear structure and a suitable floor plan to meet every need, ergonomic considerations to promote the well-being
of staff members played a vital part in the design of the new four-storey building. During the planning, special attention was paid to the lighting concept. Individual lighting provides more comfort and thus improves motivation and efficiency at the workplace. The needs in terms of light colour and intensity vary, depending on the user’s age and individual perception. The best lighting system takes the user’s personal needs into account and can be adjusted easily and flexibly.
The great challenges faced by the lighting system were the light-absorbing raw concrete ceilings and the variable office floor plan. With LUCTRA® VITAWORK®, the company chose an innovative, design award-winning floor lamp that brings the best possible lighting conditions to the workplace. The dimmable lamp comes with the latest LED technology, and with the help of both direct and indirect lighting, it achieves a natural impression of light on the ceiling as well as providing a very even light distribution in the room. Its asymmetrical distribution of light makes this floor lamp a suitable instrument to illuminate narrow or wide office rooms, amongst others.
The lighting conditions at the workplace are governed by legal standards such as EN 12464-1 and ASR 3.4 (Germany). These standards specify the required light intensity on the working surface as well as that of the entire surrounding area. Following adaptation to the actual conditions of each room, LUCTRA® VITAWORK® delivers the best result in terms of lighting technology to comply with the regulations.
