Synchronized with the body’s inner clock
Waldmann has provided ideal working light in Bayer’s head office in Basel.
The world's first office luminaire to achieve Cradle to Cradle® certification is made by Waldmann, an SME manufacturer of lighting solutions. “Certification of the LAVIGO was for us a first step, one that we consider to be important in this age of sustainable construction. This allows us to set an example in this sector, and we also view this step as an integral component of our responsibility towards society”, states Gerhard Waldmann, the owner and CEO of Herbert Waldmann GmbH & Co. KG to explain his decision.
To satisfy requirements, all the materials used in the LAVIGO were identified. They were evaluated in terms of their toxicological and recycling credentials and, in some cases, improvements were made. In addition, this evaluation incorporated verification of the energy balance, the volume and quality of water required and compliance with social criteria. This comprehensive evaluation process was performed by EPEA, assisted by the renowned Stuttgart-based construction and consultancy company Drees & Sommer.
For example, Waldmann was able to contribute with some hard facts. Its
actively run environmental management system, its own CHP plant and a solar
power system, the use of exclusively water-based paints or the in-house child
daycare centre all demonstrate its commitment to meeting challenging
requirements. Following initial certification of LAVIGO with VTL for biodynamic
light, other products in the LAVIGO family are now also being prepared for
certification. In addition, Waldmann is examining the demanding criteria
associated with the implementation of all new developments in the office
lighting sector. Waldmann luminaires deliver benefits in the form of bonus
points for construction projects that strive to achieve building certification,
for example through DGNB or LEED. “Quality products such as the LAVIGO from
Waldmann”, explains Braungart, “support a positive development trend in the
construction sector”. They are an essential requirement for attractive and
healthy buildings, and they provide an added value for people and for the
