White & Case is an international law firm established in 1901. In search of a world-class breakout space in their downtown LA offices, the firm decided on a highly-modern, clean-line designed space. One of the challenges of this project was dampening the sounds within the open common areas without installing an acoustic ceiling.

The rounded, “soft” corners of the Sattler Soft Square and Soft Quadra luminaires recommended by Inter-lux offered visual appeal with an option to add acoustic material within the fixture. All areas of the office, including the conference rooms, have benefited from reduced noise thanks to the sound-absorbing materials.

This lighting solution addressed the firm’s lighting and sound concerns and the copper finish of the luminaires complemented the other design elements of the space. Upon completion of the project, the designer commented, “By the way, the lighting looks amazing!”

Sattler provides innovative lighting solutions through a portfolio of high-quality luminaires that make an impact due to their size and striking design. The results achieved at White & Case show how impactful and efficient lighting can be.
