Cooledge Transforms Retail Environments with Luminous Surfaces at EuroShop 2017
Cooledge Lighting Inc. will be showcasing the power of luminous surfaces to transform retail spaces at EuroShop this week, 5th – 9th March 2017, demonstrating breakthrough opportunities to incorporate illumination into store design. Built upon the company’s proprietary technology, these luminous walls, ceilings and displays offer retailers entirely new ways to tailor and brand store interiors, drive customer engagement and make better use of space.
“Light fixtures have evolved in countless ways over many decades, but we are now moving past fixtures altogether – leveraging the flexibility of LEDs by integrating the technology directly into the built environment,” said William J. Sims, interim CEO of Cooledge. “By turning entire ceilings or walls into general illumination sources, we’re giving light much greater influence over the environment as a whole – whether to create a desired mood, mimic natural sunlight or complement ever-changing displays and décor with tunable color temperature. In retail settings, this will mean the difference between utilitarian lighting and immersive illumination that sets the overall tone.”
Cooledge SURFACES offer retailers:
• Creation of highly customisable environments by fusing light with materials in ceilings, walls and displays, including curved and complex architectural elements
• More space for merchandise in the absence of traditional light fixtures
• Low profile surfaces for display walls and large-scale printed graphics, maximising store footprint
• Tuneable colour temperature to properly accentuate changing merchandise
• Emulation of natural ambient light with no glare or shadows
Cooledge SURFACES are built upon the company’s market-leading TILE and LINE products; ultra-thin LED sheets that conform to curved architecture and mount with very narrow setbacks – as little as 2″ (5 cm) from a diffusion material. These proprietary LED systems can be cut, shaped and paired with diverse materials ranging from fabrics and acrylics to resins and translucent stone. Leveraging expertise that spans thousands of installations, Cooledge brings a unique understanding of how to illuminate these materials to achieve the desired lighting effect. This includes detailed knowledge of material diffusion, light transmission and colour rendering according to the surface and application.
