At the Office: The Fun Floor

Commercial, Indoor

Cody was concerned there were too many dark areas in the office where people needed more light, i.e. the copier, filling cabinets and water cooler. He didn’t want to install more lighting around the office because it would increase energy costs due to the additional lighting. Mitchell told him to just get some floor lamps and place them around the office, but where they needed the extra light, floor lamps would be in the way and could cause problems with office traffic.

Mitchell and D. Light held a brainstorming meeting to determine what needed to be done. They had ideas such as hanging string lights, issuing head strap lights to employees and even hiring someone to stand there all day and hold flash lights over the dim areas. They decided those were all stupid ideas and concluded that the best option was to buy mirrors to reflect the lighting to where they needed it. They went a little overboard and purchased too many mirrors and the office was turned into a fun house.

This was an office nightmare. Employees couldn’t figure out where they were going. They would walk towards what they thought was the copier, then walk face-first into a mirror and sometimes fall down. Both Jim and Paige were injured from walking into mirrors. They had to go before someone broke their nose.

Cody was already familiar with TCP, so he had the idea to install LED BR30s in the offices’ recessed downlights. They are perfect to light large areas due to their full light distribution. TCP’s BR line offers the energy-saving qualities of LED, with the look of traditional halogen bulbs. They are fully dimmable and shatter-resistant, ideal to withstand Mitchell’s monthly office paintball tournaments.
