Customer challenge


Pentagon Design knows a thing or two about innovation. When this leading design agency moved into new premises, it wanted a modern lighting system that could aid creativity. Could Philips provide a solution that would help employees talk, think, and create effectively?

The right lighting


Pentagon Design’s new home was an old hat factory, which was being refurbished to coincide with Helsinki’s role as World Design Capital 2012. The large open plan office, with its airy high ceilings, gave plenty of opportunities to create a pleasant workspace. The company sought modern office lighting that would be highly adaptable, so that products and designs can always be accurately evaluated.


eW Blast Powercore luminaires were chosen to bring the high-ceilinged areas to life. The 4000 K colour temperature creates an immaculate white glow that complements the surfaces, furniture and fittings within the space. Above work areas, Celino LED fixtures are arranged in lines, filling the space with clean, glare-free light. In the smaller meeting rooms, Lumistone luminaires were chosen for their efficient performance and stylish design.


The lights are operated by DALI controls, which allow users to dim the lights easily. The control system also adjusts the lights automatically according to how much daylight is entering the office. This ensures that artificial light isn’t used more than is needed, so energy is not wasted. In the bigger meeting rooms, users can control the brightness and color of the light at the touch of a button.


The finished lighting concept combines Pentagon’s own design skills with cutting-edge innovation provided by Philips lighting.
