BACKGROUND
The modern office represents a space where knowledge is assembled, shared and generated in temporary constellations of changing work groups. These loose networks often comprise people with different cultural backgrounds, experiences and expertise. The office space needs to offer specific qualities to help cultivate these differences and to strengthen the efficiency and wellbeing of the knowledge worker. Innovative lighting solutions for contemporary office environments are an absolute necessity today. But how does light influence the quality of office work? ANCB and Zumtobel initiated a global research study on light and lighting in the contemporary office environment. Five research teams of universities from Australia, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia have been involved in the study. The goal of the study was to understand diverse lighting situations around the globe and their potential for innovation.

Ten office spaces in Sydney, Medellín, Berlin, Lagos and Manila were analyzed. One work environment per city was chosen by a jury based on its visionary potential to be investigated further during a professional workshop week in Berlin. The workshop week was closed with this symposium.
