Waldmann is core partner of the BRE Biophilic Office research and demonstration project in UK. Biophilic design acknowledges that we are genetically connected to nature and that a human centred approach can improve workspaces with numerous benefits to health, wellbeing and efficiency. The project will span two and a half years. After analyzing the current working conditions in the first year, the office from the 1980s will be refurbished. The building will be completely overhauled: beginning with simple steps as putting plants on desks, continuing with fitting new nature-inspired carpet tiles or green walls up to our biodynamic lighting solutions to mimic natural light. In the second year the impact of the new office environment on the workers will be analyzed.

Swarm control: now automatically via Bluetooth
Never again working alone in a dark office: The LUM CONNECT TALK wireless module enables luminaires to communicate with each other and provides groups of luminaires to create a pleasant work atmosphere at all times. The new Bluetooth function even enables the luminaires to group themselves automatically. When the room situation changes, the groups of luminaires adapt to it at all times. That's how easy it is to increase safety, orientation and well-being in the office!
LIGHT ADMIN app: The smart way to configure lighting
With a versatile range of user-oriented customisation options and with the rising intelligence of lighting, it is becoming increasingly time-consuming to configure these systems. To counteract this in future, we have developed the LIGHT ADMIN app. The app can be used to create a building structure to provide lighting to all floors, rooms and areas. Waldmann luminaires can be integrated and configured within that structure. By way of example, this includes automatic switch-on, dimming levels response thresholds for the presence detectors and the swarm control.
