In The Netherlands the University of Amsterdam has created a study and meeting room in one of its newer buildings. It consists of two floors which are accessible via an open staircase. As the staircase connects several important walkways too, noise quickly builds up in the room, making it hard to concentrate. To ease the sound a total of 12 Rice Field 180 luminaires were installed, elegantly bringing back focus.
