An Office Building of the Future
The Iino Building, designed with the concept of “connection,” offers continuity from adjacent blocks and Hibiya Park aboveground, and continues belowground from the junction of the pedestrian network between Uchisaiwai Station on the Toei Mita Line and Hibiya City. With 5 stories belowground and 27 stories above, the Iino Building is comprised of shops from the 1st floor underground to the 1st floor aboveground, the Iino Hall and Conference Center from the 4th to 6th floors, and tenant office spaces from the 7th to 27th floors. The office of Iino Kaiun Kaisha, Ltd. on the 27th floor has even been granted the LEED-CI Platinum Certification*, a first for Japan. With this progress and a plan to link the Iino Building to the Tokyo Metro Kasumigaeki Station in the near future, architectural innovation through energy efficiency will reach unprecedented milestones.

Toshiba’s LED Baselight System Ceiling Fixtures are the Ideal Choice
The standard office floors of the Iino Building will be a pillar-less open and airy space with a ceiling height of 10’ and a large common area per floor. Amongst the other energy-saving initiatives selected to be used within these spaces, a Toshiba LED Lighting control system has been introduced to operate approximately 14,500 LED-based lighting grid system ceiling fixtures on the tenant office floors from the 7th to 27th floors. This LED-based lighting will have chip-on-board LED modules arranged on the four corner faces of light panels on 90% of the surface of a square lighting fixture, and dot-printed acrylic covers on the lower faces to achieve a uniform, high illuminant distribution while minimizing glare by diffused lighting. Many thanks to Toshiba’s colleagues in Japan, Toshiba Lighting and Technology Corporation, for this compelling LED story.
