The family-owned company of Ranck, rich in tradition, appeals to fashion-conscious people of all ages. Service orientation takes first place for its staff - the customer is to feel good and be able to find his/her way through the store well. For this reason the fashion house decided, in the course of refurbishing, to change over to completely LED-based lighting. Since the optimised light quality ensures a pleasant shopping atmosphere; above and beyond that, the LED luminaires direct the light precisely and make stronger contrasts possible so that the customers gains an optimum overview within the room. The challenging building with its angled corners and partially low ceilings did not in any way confront the lighting designers with insoluble tasks.
On an area of very nearly 3,000 square metres and on three floors the luminaires B.LEE and SISTEMA from Oktalite now ensure an appealing scene setting for the goods. The refurbishing work on the first floor of the department store permitted a replacement of luminaires only in the existing ceiling cut-outs. With the optimally alignable spotlight CARDAN SOLO 175 in this case it was possible to achieve a marked improvement – with little mounting effort and reduced conversion costs. The result does not just look good, it is also efficient. The replacement of the lighting system, combined with the modernisation of the heating and ventilation system, is intended to save about 300,000 kWh per year. Photos: Christoph Meinschäfer
