The Finnish department store Aleksi 13 is one of the most famous meeting points of modern fashion in Helsinki. The Aleksi 13 flagship is situated in an old, so called Lundqvist palace from the year 1900. Nowadays this historically significant building is protected. The first Aleksi 13 -shop was opened exactly 50 years ago and now the company has celebrated it´s 50 years of anniversary. To honor the long history and the year of celebration, the first floor of the department store has experienced an elegant and stylish makeover.
The new white Barrisol-ceiling with Fagerhult´s efficient and timeless Touch-spotlights creates a bright and fresh feeling to the premises. Diagonally installed light lines with LTS Lichtkanal 110 –luminaires are completing the lighting solution in the ceiling. As a crown and an eye-catcher in this inspiration area is a light installation which was made from 50 pcs of vertically installed Led Linear Xootube –luminaires. The diameter of this round installation is up to 3,5 meters. The whole new lighting concept was designed by Fagerhult in co-operation with the customer.
Touch-spotlights are offering a flexible and sustainable lighting solution to the premises. At the same time they are highlighting the products and providing comfortable and soft contrasts to the shop. Xootube light installation personalizes the whole inspiration area. The bright light spreads through the display windows far along the street of Aleksanterinkatu, creating an attractive and tempting look to the flagship of Aleksi 13.
