The Challange

When Area decided to move their entire London-based world-class design team to a new dedicated area in their Tooley Street offices to encourage collaboration across the team, they approached Synergy for an inspiring and creative LED linear lighting solution for the studio style space.

Area required the LED linear should comply with CIBSE low glare UGR19 guidelines; to ensure staff wellbeing and comfort when working. Polaris 1 UGR19 low glare fittings where selected for there excellent performance and UGR<19 rating in the glare index. If you want to know more about low glare read our guide to UGR19.

The Solution 

After an initial visit to by the Synergy design team to get a feel for the design and discuss the options with the Area team, Synergy proposed a suspended Polaris 1 Y shape LED linear pendant in black finish and Polaris 1 UGR19 LED fitting in anodised aluminium over the bar area. The Y shape subtly reflects the pattern used on the brainstorming wall on the right and gives a cohesive feel to the finished space.

Justin Bass, Director at Area, was impressed with the finished installation, saying “I wanted to thank you for the lights, all installed over the weekend and they look superb. are really pleased with the results, it looks excellent and the actual light is much better. Really impressed – thank you!”
