Conversation: Ate Atema

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Ate Atema on a project for a unique non-profit organization in Chelsea. His work is absolutely inspiring and it was a pleasure having him stop by to discuss the project. Some of our favorite features from the project included the Savant app, Extron meeting scheduler, Sonance speakers and amplifiers.

The Savant Systems Control

Savant systems was a key player in this project, allowing the organization to quickly call up various “scenes” in preparation for conference calls, screen collaborations, etc. As you watch the recap you will notice the space has an abundance of nature implemented within the design. Meticulous control over light and climate was important to maintaining environmental health. The Savant app allows for this with granular control and ease.

Extron

We utilize the Extron meeting scheduler in our own office, finding it to be the most efficient way to transition between meetings and rooms. Considering the number of meeting spaces and the fluid/collaborative culture of the business, Extron seemed like a natural fit. With just a few taps on the panel they are able to choose a space, time, check availability, and schedule their meeting on the fly.

Sonance

Sonance is one of our go-to suppliers for audio. For this project we installed amplifiers and the Sonance 4″ Pendant Speakers. Eight pendant speakers were installed in each boardroom and six in the conference room, providing high-quality sound within the entire space.

Our 2019 Lighting Summit

We had a great turn out for the 2019 Lighting Summit at the Savant Experience Center! We’d like to thank the Architects and design professionals who attended throughout the day. Many of the attendees were able to earn up to five AIA learning units, mingle with their peers in between sessions, and enjoy the amazing food provided by Krisp Events. We would also like to thank the presenters from Savant, Lutron, LumaStream, USAI Lighting, and Ketra whose courses received tons of positive feedback. We hope to see some familiar faces at next year’s Summit!
