Office Lighting

What is ABW? (Activity Based Working)

ABW is a workstyle that recognizes that workers perform different activities throughout their workday and need various work settings to achieve their tasks for the day.
Panasonic provides a suitable lighting environment which helps workers realize an environment suitable for efficiency and creativity.


Along with a lot of different workstyles, Panasonic implements the optimal lighting environment which facilitates both ease and effectiveness of work.
To accomplish that target, we focus on the following 3 activities.


An area for Co-creation such as brainstorming and workshops are increasing in varying styles. Active cross-communication is achieved by switching the light environment according to their needs at the time.


It is important to maintain mental and physical health to increase labor productivity. It creates a "bright and clean atmosphere", encourages a reset of feelings, and gives vitality to work.


As office spaces increasingly adopt open space plans, there is now a new problem of the lack of spaces where employees can fully concentrate on their individual tasks. We propose a lighting environment that offers options for optimal lighting tailored to a wide range of goals, and enhances personal focus on individual tasks.
