LAPICIDA LONDON; FLAGSHIP STONE FLOORING SHOWROOM.
Progress Lighting recently completed the installation of this Award Winning lighting scheme that is illuminated almost totally using LED light fixtures.
Lapicida has created a total environment in stone; on walls, on floors, on ceilings; as cladding, as architectural elements and as one- off works of art. The showroom as been designed as a series of room sets, to highlight the versatility of the stone products on display. The lighting scheme needed to reflect and enhance the natural beauty of the vast range of products on show. The sense of theatre that is projected throughout the showroom is confirmed by the spectacular Sally Storey designed lighting scheme that is fully controlled via a wireless lighting control system that was designed and skilfully installed, along with the rest of the LED lighting system by the Progress Lighting team.
Nowhere is the lighting more dazzling than in the ‘Dark Zone’ where elements in glass mosaic and semi-precious stone glow and sparkle with internally illuminated and ambient lighting that is fully controllable and responds to viewers as they walk through the space. By contrast, a quiet sense of history pervades along the 1000 sq. ft. area of antique floors. Where marble, limestone and terracotta pavements, lit by modern state of the art LED light fixtures, all connected to the wireless lighting control system, that provides full dimming and scene setting facilities.
With the extensive use of LED lighting fixtures throughout the entire showroom, (97% LED illuminated) this scheme provides excellent energy saving credentials. The lighting load is around 90% less than when compared to traditional lighting sources. The savings are further enhanced by the Progress Lighting designed lighting control system that provides features such as full dimming control of all connected circuits, 16 channel scene setting, occupancy sensing to room sets and daylight sensors that control light levels to light fixtures that are located adjacent to the showroom windows.
