Sustainable concept at all levels

In a former cinema in Gleimstraße, Bio Company opened a new premium branch in the Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg. The supermarket with a 100 percent organic range also attaches importance to sustainability as regards shop fitting and the lighting concept. Moreover, the topic of cinema in the implementation was intended to remind people of the building’s history. Oktalite equipped the market leader among the organic food supermarkets in Berlin/Brandenburg with a comprehensive LED lighting design over a sales area of 625 square metres plus ancillary rooms. Due to the nature of the former cinema hall(s) the lighting designers were in this case confronted with different ceiling heights between 2.5 and 7 metres as well as with irregularly shaped rooms.

To be considered was also the fact that within the sales rooms digital projectors were to be used. The latter now project films about the organic food producers and farmers that supply the Bio-Company onto screens in the aisle, catering and check-out areas. The tailor-made lighting concept was implemented with the spotlights TARO and TARO MINI as well as suspended luminaires for customer guidance in the entrance area. At the fresh food counter the recessed spotlights STRATUS 155 VS are used for goods illumination and QUIRA for back wall lighting. Depending on the range, the light colour temperature varies between 2,700 Kelvin for bakery products, fruit, vegetables and wine and 3,000 Kelvin. At the end a system performance of 12.67 watts per square metre was achieved.

Products used


LORETO combines performance with large-area, visible light and in that way is ideally qualified for representative areas such as malls or entrance areas. Three different diameters, two different light colours and three pendant lengths leave a lot of leeway for supporting the architecture. At the same time, LORETO is, with its up to 10,000 lm a real power package.
