Kaubamaja – Food Department

Fewer luminaries – same light level

The Food Department at Kaubamaja in Tallinn is an actual proof that it is possible to use fewer luminaries while still remaining the same light levels. Kaubamaja Food department offers exclusive and organic labelling within both food and drinks in Estonia.


Due to an old and inefficient lighting solution a complete change was made at the food department together with Fagerhult. A new solution including general lighting, spotlights for shelves and a spotlight solution for the beverage section.


The 2000 m2 large food department has decreased the energy consumption from 17,5 W/m2 to 10 W/m2 and decreased the number of general lighting luminaries from 386 to 186 – but retained the same light level.

All section recieved new lighting; the Marathon recessed spotlights illuminates the sales area such as logotypes and pictures. Recessed Zone Evo spotlights illuminates cheese, vegetables and advertisement.

Several other luminaires were used such as Multilume Free that provides the general lighting, Pleiad Evo illuminates the working area behind the meat and ready-to-go food counters and the storage area is illuminated with AllFive LED.

The store is also equipped with emLED, Fagerhult’s emergency LED concept that increases personal safety considerably by almost eliminating the risk of the emergency light failing to work.
