For the open office space, used in 24/7 operation, illuminated ceiling elments made of backlit micro prismatic panels create a skylight effect in the huge space. The automatic colour temperature control changes the colour temperature from 3000K to 5000K during the day, following the natural daylight conditions. The simulated daylight is provided everywhere in the large office, even at the inner workstations with less natural daylight connection.

In the evening and at night, light colour and brightness are reduced to decrease the influence of light on the body, to avoid a shift of the circadian rhythm.

So we turn night into night and day into day.
