Interview with Falco Vile, Lumenear.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Falco Vile: Whether it is an office, restaurant or public space, everyone has experienced it: a beautifully decorated space where it is impossible to have a conversation. This is especially known for ‘open plan offices’ in which hard and smooth materials have been incorporated. Colleagues on the phone, spontaneous consultation between office workers, equipment that is switched on: employees have to endure a lot of noise in the workplace.
