An office world of the next generation
Workplace premises have a major impact on innovation within a company, and on the creativity of its employees. Working methods and collaboration are becoming ever more closely networked. These considerations prompted ZF Friedrichshafen AG to develop Office Concept 3.0 on a joint basis with the Fraunhof IAO Institute, a specialist in workplace design and organization. To answer the question of perfect lighting for a modern office landscape, the company decided in favour of solutions from Waldmann.
New workplace procedures are defined by intensive communication and these require the right amount of space for meetings to take place. Office premises have to reflect this change in the world of work. ZF in Friedrichshafen recognized this a long time ago. The automotive supplier has developed a concept that reflects the requirements of the modern world of work. This concept was developed for the recently constructed ZF head office, known as ZF Forum. Their primary focus was to create a flexible and communicative office landscape, one that provides their staff with a modern working atmosphere. Henceforward, personally assigned workplaces are a thing of the past.
In this new office concept, the vision of lean processes and structures should be discernible, but not at the cost of a pleasant atmosphere in those workplace spaces. The lighting solution with free-standing luminaires from Waldmann presented the ideal way to combine both of these objectives. The modern lighting solution has been chosen for the new ZF Forum head office of this corporation - and at the management location in Plant 2, specifically in the areas for project work and individual work, as well as in meeting rooms and break-out rooms. The integrated daylight and presence sensors on these luminaires automatically assure the right level of lighting throughout this office landscape. Employees no longer need to involve themselves with this. The modern sensor system also assures optimum use of energy. The LAVIGO family of free-standing luminaires with their streamlined shapes is compatible with a wide variety of furniture systems. Appropriate variants are available to suit different workplace configurations at ZF, e.g. single, double and bench workplaces.
