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.”
