Astrata develops software at the cross-roads of Information Technology and logistics. Moving the company to the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, meant quite a break from the ordinary for its 60 employees. Where most of them used to be able to enjoy the silence of his or her own room at the office, now in the new building they had to focus on their work in a largely open wing.

For the newly designed interior an acoustic plan therefore was created. As a part of it, ten Round&Round 120 luminaires were placed, with a total of 60 square meters (646 square feet) of acoustic material. Together with other acoustic solutions, this reduced reverberation time to 0.5 seconds. The result is a peaceful atmosphere throughout the entire wing, making it possible to have meetings or talk on the phone without disturbing colleagues.
