Professional light for your everyday grocery shopping

  • Year: 2018

With approximately 1,300 stores and a market share of approximately 36%, ICA Sweden is the leading grocery retailer in Sweden. The business is run together with free ICA traders, each of which owns and operates its own store. Our client, ICA Värmdö, is a shop with "everything-under-one-roof", and has now expanded with a dining area as well.

The client had a vision of an updated and modern lighting concept for the store. They wanted a store that felt lighter and brighter, and the final result is something that we are equally proud. The installation was made in sprints, one section of the store at the time, since the store was open during installation.

ICA wished for a more lit up area with fruit and vegetables. We therefore experimented with different light temperature to better enhance colours and contrasts. Furthermore, we updated the areas by the cashier and the deli. Spotlights was installed in order to improve the working environment for the employees in those areas, and enhance the lighting comfort for the customer.

All fluorescent luminaires for the general lighting in the store was changed to LED-lights. We also updated all the lighting solutions in the fridges and coolers, to get a more modern and energy efficient solution for our client.
