Nestled in one of the most refined corners of Bertrange, Luxembourg, stands the luxury jewelry store “Windeshausen Joailliers”. This establishment serves as a beacon for those seeking the most prestigious watch and jewelry brands, such as Rolex, IWC, Cartier, Chanel, and many more.
The lighting challenge was to accentuate these masterpieces without overshadowing them. Thanks to a fruitful collaboration with D&sign srl, the furniture designers, we crafted a lighting scheme that seamlessly integrates into the furnishings and ceilings, making the item for sale the centerpiece.
For the furniture, we selected “PILLAR” in both Recessed and Bridge variants. A unique feature of PILLAR is its Tunable White technology. With alternating LEDs from 2700K to 5700K, it achieves a CRI of 97. The CRI, or Color Rendering Index, measures the ability of a light source to reveal the true colors of objects in comparison to natural light. A common challenge for LEDs is saturating the R9 band of red, which is crucial for accurate color rendering. Yet, PILLAR surpasses this hurdle, boasting R9 values above 90.
Illuminating natural gemstones can be complex due to their refraction and reflection properties. Every gem has its uniqueness, and to enhance it, precise light projection is essential. This is where we excel: PILLAR’s LEDs are encapsulated in optics that focus and direct the light squarely onto the gems, highlighting every hue and sparkle.
Every light in the store is controlled by Casambi, a system that simplifies the management of Tunable White. This allows for the customization of the lighting for each showcase, adjusting the hue and intensity perfectly for each displayed jewel or watch. In doing so, not only is each piece guaranteed to shine at its best, but it also ensures customers perceive every detail in its natural magnificence.
