Chronicling the Advancement of LED and Solid-State Lighting in the Built Environment.
The New Linear UnderLine SERIES High Efficiency LED Ultra Low Profile STORE DESIGN: VINTRY FINE WINES Edison Winner a Game Changer L’Observatoire International, NYC, took top honors at GE’s annual Edison Awards competition anounced at Lightfair, for the lighting of Vintry Fine Wines, New York. The project, designed by Jeff Taylor and Jessica Jie Soo, is located in Manhattan’s Battery Park neighborhood. The lighting design capitalizes on Roger Marvel Architect’s unusual design to help draw customers into the warm interior of the wine shop. The L’Observatoire lighting designers used GE’s Tetra Contour product to line the shelves and ceilings, “effortlessly” merging with the graceful curves and rows of the store that evokes the geography of a vineyard, notes the competition’s judges. The placement of the ﬁxtures was extensively studied in a mock-up to ensure maximum lighting with a minimum of reﬂection from the LED mounting. Each ﬁxture, whether it is located in the shelves or the ceiling, is carefully detailed to prevent visibility from any angle. All of the ﬁxtures are dimmable and maintained by a state-of-the-art computerized control system that follows the astronomical clock. The lights are brighter during the day, and dim themselves during evening hours.• Actual Size Profile t Over 250 Lumens / Foot t Over 70 Lumens / Watt t Commercial, Plug N’ Play ABOVE: The warm, 2700K color of the LEDs brings warmth to the space of the store while highlighting leather surfaces. The curvilinear forms expand the perceived space and actual linear footage of the store. The bright, clean lines of light, note the GE judges, allow the space to have a great deal of merchandise without appearing cluttered. 877- SSL- GREEN download brochure at SolidStateLuminaires.com www.architecturalssl.com Circle 07
