Latest Trends and Technologies for High-End Retail Lighting
High end retail lighting profits immensely from new lighting designs. A dedicated light concept can offer more than just illuminating the facilities. It gives retailers a chance to determine which products are in the focus and in which way clients pass through the store or even how the clients feel during their stay. A prosperous concept in the high end sector is an equilibrated balance between reduced general lighting and accent lighting accentuating selected products in contrast to their background. There are a lot of different parts in a store which all require particular solutions in lighting. This can be implemented by lighting concepts within the context of multi-sensory store layouts all aiming at the comfort of clients. Innovations such as colour tuneable spots, small LES/high density COBs allowing more punch of the light and smaller fixtures, fitting rooms staging shoppers in conjunction with sophisticated, digitized mirrors and variable atmospheres and humanoid robots as future shopping assistants elevate the shopping experience to a new quality level. This is being complemented by BLE Beacon technology such as Osram Einstone for indoor navigation, location based information and proximity marketing.
