Levis Sustainability Policy in store lighting
Nowadays reducing illuminance levels minimises energy consumption and a lighting technique with an accent lighting allows the use of considerable different lighting effects for modelling objects perfectly. The accent lighting really could be perceived when the illuminance levels are higher than the general lighting. It must be certainly matched to suit the relevant merchandise.
The Levi’s® Store required harmonious ambient lighting that would allow the space a bright and friendly atmosphere, but with definite directed lighting accents on selected products and accessories. The clothes and ensembles are sharply accentuated and consistently illuminated with warm white light at 3000K for a cosily atmosphere.
Lighting concept includes medium contrast, consisting of a mix of accent lighting, large square diffuse light panels in cashier zone and signal lights for image of brand. The moderate Accent lighting using electrotrack spotlights with medium-wide beam angles. Narrow beam angles for higher contrast on specific items and fabrics. Average horizontal illuminance of 900 lx. Warm White color temperature of 3000 Kelvin.
The light is used for uniform illumination of the store while giving focus to the store’s exclusive and new arrived items. The recesse luminaires illuminate the fitting rooms zone and leads clients to have perfect match sense of casual wears.
Shop windows as the message of brand
To light the display and shop window areas, the luminaires have been installed on tracks. This simple, indispensable product is a fine combination of design, functionality and quality of imagination. The spotlights can be rotated through 350° and pivoted through +/- 90° to provide the shelves at the side walls with decisively the right accent lighting.
