Industrial premises often requires mounting of luminaires in tricky places. This could make maintenance complicated, especially if an operation goes on around the clock. SCANIA in Södertälje, Sweden, came to us with a wish for a modern lighting solution, where you can put maintenance on the shelf.
Just like Fagerhult, SCANIA is a Swedish-originated company of quality products. In their new development department, they needed the latest lighting solutions. Our challenge was to be able to illuminate from high altitude in the ceiling without throwing shadows on the floor, or dazzling the staff. We also had to consider sensitive electronic equipment present, such as robots and AI, without disturbing their sensors or settings with our lighting.
We achieved a wide light with a good glare and 4,000K to give the impression of a spiky and active workplace with good function. Vertically, we use 6,000K on the walls with respect to our biological system and circadian rythm. The overall impression should give a futuristic expression but also reflect Scania's identity.Our lighting solutions not only provides the light needed for the operation, they also help to create a sustainable solution considering energy use.
Apart from Fagerhults products, we also used Megalo from Ateljé Lyktan and Linear LED Walk over from Simes.
