Studio Plankton faced the challenge of finding a new office that could accommodate its growing team. They were looking for an environment that reflected their passion for design and creativity and fostered a collaborative way of working. In collaboration with KOMAAN! Architects for the architectural design and Tamco for the steel works, they realized their dream office. The result is a breathtaking building characterized by pastel colors, creative lighting and high-quality products.

The office is also sustainable and future-proof, with energy-saving solutions and Casambi technology, which allows users to adjust the lighting according to their needs and preferences. Studio Plankton is excited about their new workplace that exudes their talent and vision.

The Lighting Design

The lighting design builds on the idea of reusing and enhancing the existing rail system, adding colorful and playful elements.

The inspiration came from the contrast between industrial and artistic aspects of the space, to create a dynamic and inviting atmosphere. The white accent spotlights highlight the artworks and architectural features, while the LED lines under the pastel-colored mezzanine can switch from RGBW colors to white light, depending on the mood and function of the space. The decorative wall luminaires and pendant lights add warmth and charm to the space.

Benefits for Studio Plankton

The realization of Studio Plankton’s new office with the support of Project Nekton has delivered a wide range of benefits beyond just aesthetic improvements. These benefits go to the heart of what Studio Plankton strives for as a creative company: innovation, sustainability and a stimulating working environment.

Connected lighting systems with Casambi: The implementation of Casambi technology provides Studio Plankton with the flexibility to adapt lighting to different working scenarios and project needs. This system allows the intensity, color and direction of light to be controlled via an app, resulting in a dynamic and adaptable working environment. The future-proofing and scalability of this system allow the office to evolve with the latest technological developments, keeping Studio Plankton always at the forefront of innovation.

People-centered lighting concept: Advanced lighting design plays a crucial role in fostering an environment that encourages creativity, collaboration and productivity. Tailoring the lighting to the employees’ specific needs creates an atmosphere that promotes well-being and inspiration. This people-centered concept is based on the idea that well-being in the workplace directly contributes to creative output and team efficiency.

Aesthetic and functional lighting: In addition to the functional benefits, lighting design plays a key role in enhancing the aesthetic value of the office. The combination of artistic and industrial elements creates a unique atmosphere that reflects the identity of Studio Plankton. The carefully chosen lighting elements, such as white accent spotlights and RGBW LED lines, highlight the artwork and architectural features of the office, while also providing the flexibility to adapt the atmosphere of the space to different occasions.

Increased office sustainability: By reducing energy consumption and extending the life cycle of lighting materials, Studio Plankton contributes to sustainability. Our lighting solution supports sustainability by reducing energy consumption and increasing durability. We collaborate with innovative lighting manufacturers who use materials and design techniques to achieve energy savings, life cycle extension and product repairability. We choose eco-friendly, cost-effective and high-quality products that contribute to global efforts to combat climate change and environmental degradation.

This case illustrates how Studio Plankton, with the help of Project Nekton, created a workspace that not only reinforces their creative identity, but also highlights their commitment to sustainability and innovation. It is a perfect example of how thoughtful lighting can create an inspiring environment that pushes the boundaries of design and technology!
