Create a retail lighting environment while taking into account architectural lighting techniques for an historical city landmark. Owners wanted an easy-to-operate light control system that was flexible enough for changes in needs as well as in daylight due to seasonal changes.
With the Lutron 4000 Series of GRAFIK Eye preset light controls, they were able to accomplish this and more. With the Lutron system, designers were able to set up an after-hours night scene that illuminated the space differently than during the day and that stayed on well after closing, changing again sometime after midnight.
During store hours, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., they preset scenes for time-of-day lighting, sequencing them automatically from one to another for more focused retail lighting.
“A big plus for the system – on top of ‘painting’ the space in various ways at different times of the day – is the extended lamp life,” said Michael Castelli, an associate with Hillman DiBernardo, the lighting designers on the project. “These are expensive lamps that really needed to be stretched in life as much as possible.”
The ability to sequence the lighting using a hands-free operation was a big part in choosing the Lutron system for the job. The astronomic timeclock is set in advance, so the system comes on and automatically changes scenes based on calendar days and times. “There are so many other things for store personnel to do and think about in a retail environment,” said Castelli. “With this system, the lighting is taken care of.”
Most retail interiors are lighted through brute force, said Castelli. “There are tons of lighting fixtures that bombard the products with light. We wanted a lighting system that took the space into account and was not overpowered by the retail aspect of it. With the Lutron system, the space came out exactly as planned.”
