Zürich, Switzerland




2000 m²


The special challenge of a low ceiling height was overcome by Interstore Design and Schweitzer Project in this case by the use of the recessed LED spotlights TARO and STRATUS VS 155 from Oktalite. The choice fell on black spotlights as they can be fitted unobtrusively into the ceiling ducts. The result is also impressive as regards energy efficiency: the LED luminaires consume only 13.9 watts per square metre.

The newly designed "Mövenpick" wine cellar matches, with its stylish ambiance, the Jelmoli Food Market well. Over an area of 200 square metres, TARO, TARO MINI und QUIRA, recessed in a mirror-ceiling, impart a pleasantly open atmosphere to the low room. Spot reflectors permit, moreover, outstanding focussing on the exquisite selection of 600 wines from all over the world.

Whether wine, sushi or cheese – with the LED solution from Oktalite the customers of the Jelmoli Department store are invited to linger and enjoy themselves in the food supermarket after shopping
