For more than 30 years, GDATA Software AG has been ensuring security in the digital world from Germany. The IT pioneer from Bochum developed the world's first antivirus software as early as 1987. The spectacular company headquarters on an old industrial site is focused down to the last detail on the core competence of G DATA: an intelligent network structure. The original lighting system in the reception, cafeteria and event hall, which was designed by InstaLighting, takes this requirement into account.

The interior lighting in the three areas should reflect the pioneering role of G DATA - and of course also harmonize with the multifunctional interior. InstaLighting and the responsible planning office solved this task with an openly designed, widely branched "grid" made of direct and indirect light, which connects individual "cells" with each other. The most striking light elements in the entrance area – futuristic-looking, accentuating light honeycombs on the ceiling and radiating light beams on the floor – act as a visual statement and at the same time offer visitors a clear, trend-setting guiding function. The cafeteria speaks the same language of light, looks cozy and at the same time floats like a spaceship. Cubic outdoor lights, separately dimmable and adjustable in color temperature, provide accents in the event hall. The entire lighting system works according to aspects of Human Centric Lighting (HCL) and thus supports people's natural day-night rhythm. The control enables four lighting scenarios: daylight, two colour-dynamic party scenes and working light for cleaning and service tasks.
