Polyground

'polygroundPolyground - Solutions for urban challenges. Polyground is a social organisation, specialized in initiating and accompanying public-private partnerships. Through our expertise, experience and enthusiasm, we engage stakeholders in goal-directed collaboration, geared towards numerous societal challenges including safety, quality of life, neighbourhood improvement and regional management.

More and more, the public cause requires a joint approach and shared responsibilities. This pertains to public participation of citizens as well as ‘vital coalitions’ in which government, civilians, entrepreneurs and social institutions collaborate. Based on our expertise in policy and operations, we advise governmental parties in initiating new and innovative partnerships. In De-escalate, Polyground coordinates and facilitates the interactions between university, government, and the entrepreneurs on Stratumseind in a joint effort to improve safety, atmosphere, and commerce.

The Lux Lab

het lux labTHE LUX LAB designs lighting solutions for both interiors and outdoor situations.

Light is a means of designing, thanks to light we experience our environment. The lighting color and the way it impacts on the retina define our perception of space. The Lux Lab wants to improve the perception of space, where possible with daylight, but if necessary with artificial lighting. We strive to implement refreshingly innovative, yet reliable, solutions. Applications could be a town square or long term cultural heritage, or a brief event highlighting ambiance and a night view. We aim at being original, inventive and sustainable for permanent solutions, while frivolous and experimental in temporary lighting events, with the urge to learn more about light and its numerous applications always in mind.

Above all we want to surprise by applying light as an intangible building material to create a living environment.
