Did you know that the average person spends more time working than any other activity?
Almost any other, it is second only to sleeping. According to the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics study in 2010, the hours that we spend at work continue to rise each year. In addition, our work is increasingly service-oriented, with more people working in offices or workstation environments.
Another labor trend, is that many people are working from home offices. Most non residential buildings have a significant office area or function and should follow the same office lighting principles discussed here.
The ideal lighting solution in offices is a positive, motivating light atmosphere that allows work unobstructed by glare. In addition, the lighting should be an innovative but discreet design that optically upgrades the room without dominating it. The use of presence and brightness sensors ensures that employees work with a constant lighting level to facilitate concentration.
