Customer needs assessment We asked Harpinder madan, Co- founder of Fiber tower technologies (San Francisco) to help us design a futuristic ceiling for his office. What is that you expect out of your office space? - Spacious, simple yet aesthetic What level of security system you have in your office? - Standard office security system What qualities you look for in a ceiling? - Should contain all the basic features like lights, camera and should be visually good. What is the office space for your subordinates? - There are cubicles with the required amenities. Do you feel there is something lacking in your current design for the office space? - Lack of privacy, one can overhear each other in the cubicle.

Fiber Optics System • Fiber Optics use one source of light • Light then directed to one of 4 panels • One box lights up 4 cubicles • Fiber Optics use less energy • One light is spread between multiple areas
Fiber Optic Cables clustered together • Placed along reflective strip • Cables angled inwards
Fiber Optic Lights • Beams need to cross to produce more light • Panels angle light inwards • Light also hits cubicle walls and lights them up
