Philips Consumer Lighting Headquarters

Somerset, New Jersey

Consolidating three locations into one headquarters, Philips looked to create an open, flexible work environment that would showcase its latest lighting technology. Gensler renovated the workplace to be 100-percent free-address, with a variety of spaces tailored to the different ways employees work – including focus rooms/phone rooms, conference rooms, touchdown areas, breakout and collaboration spaces and centralized community hubs. The space as a whole is connected through the theme of “falling blocks of light,” inspired by the game Tetris. A lighting demo center – the only one if its kind in North America – showcases lighting technology through a series of vignettes of Philip’s products.
