Working People Light / Publication

Working People Light

While the importance of physical comfort has long been recognized, the effect of psychological comfort is frequently underestimated. Increasingly important due to the technological and societal changes affecting work culture, Working People Light is a Philips publication that explores mental wellbeing in the office. Bringing complex concepts to life, abstract photography is used to communicate conceptual ideas, meaning this essay can be used by professionals and companies as a creative springboard to create holistic solutions to improve office comfort.

This publication deals with a topical subject that has been much discussed in other publications. However, the jury thinks that mental well being in order to increase efficiency at work is too narrow a perspective and therefore overrated.
