    Key topics and learnings


    We are pushing the boundaries of lighting innovation with Power-over-Ethernet technology that allows luminaires to be hard-wired to a building’s data infrastructure. The new state-of-the-art office complex The Edge in Amsterdam is much more than a proof of concept: it’s a successful showcase of what smart lighting can achieve, and a harbinger of things to come.


    In this Light Bite series Office lighting: to The Edge and beyond, you will see how the different project participants have contributed to and benefitted from the remarkable advances made at this spectacular office site:
