Lighting design

From analysis to the finishing touch


The process of lighting design

Playing with light is fascinating. Light attracts, touches our soul, creates moods and supports orientation. Light guides attention and generates emotions. Lighting shapes rooms. What demands do you make on the lighting? Oktalite lighting concepts support your individual requirements so that light tells your story. Obtain information from our lighting consultants. 

Lighting analysis

Before every new retail trade and shop lighting system there is the exact analysis of your rooms and lighting system possibilities. Our know-how makes us strong in target-oriented consulting and on-the-spot examination of the ideal scene-setting on your sales area. How efficient is the lighting, how authentic is the colour rendition and how good is the light distribution? Those are questions that guide us in this process. Enhancing experience, more specific customer guidance and cost cutting: our analysis shows how your lighting will become better.

Lighting concept

Lighting concepts today are a part of the sales concept. It is all the more important that we understand what makes you tick and where you want to go. At your place and in our showroom we take the time to clarify basics, to jointly specify the objectives and to show you suitable things from our portfolio live. Fashion, food, fitness or automotive – every company has different customers, brands, highlights. Light or dark, dramatic or subdued, accentuated or dynamic? Lighting determines the feeling. Every moment counts.

Lighting design

Our experts in lighting design go into a closed meeting with the architecture and shopfitting plans. Lighting calculation takes places according to the state of the art with the programs Relux and Dialux, for the execution plans we use AutoCad: each new lighting design is produced with pinpoint accuracy in our digital creative workshop. 3D visualisation makes your new lighting realm become alive even before the rollout. Throughout Germany and internationally our team compiles all the plans and product legends comprehensibly in such a way that all luminaires, modules and systems later do their jobs with top marks.

The finishing touches 

We particularly like the fine tuning. It's a powerful moment when we perfectly position all the spotlights for the première. At the same time, we provide your team from Visual Merchandising with the necessary knowledge on the handling and care of our luminiares. Only in that way can every element of lighting architecture perform its defined task in the long term. You have decided in favour of a dynamic lighting control system? Then you will quite simply enjoy the introduction to the simple handling of our systems and the  changing between customised lighting scenes.

Sampling on the spot

Often it is best shown directly in the store and within the room architecture, which light and which luminaires really suit you. And quite often there are valuable "aha" experiences. Namely, when our advisers present selected luminaire designs and play with various light colours and intensities on the spot in order to work out the best possible effects for every lighting task in your surroundings. This is a service that we are pleased to offer you.
