Bringing the brand’s vision to life in the store required innovative interior design and artistic lighting. Vintage furniture provided a warm, relaxed atmosphere, which was offset by cooler features such as industrial windows, steel, and glass. The theme of nature was introduced through a ‘vertical garden’; a special construction with plants growing from an illuminated wall.
The two floors of the store were linked together visually by Philips large luminous surfaces with Kvadrat soft cells. This innovative textile panel produces dynamic light displays that are controlled via computer. The resulting visuals create a unique, attractive ambience, which also ensures the brand’s color, purple, runs through the store.
The panels, due to their textile covering, also absorb excess sound, eliminating any harsh echo. Not only have the new lights given the store amazing stopping power, but they have helped to create a more welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere for shoppers. The new interior lighting design expresses Laurèl’s spirit perfectly, and it is due to be recreated in other stores across Germany.
“We’re thrilled,” says Evelyn Lagoyannis, Head of Visual Merchandising & Store Design at Laurèl. “The luminous textile panels fit amazingly into the architecture of our store and create a really unique decorative effect. It suits us perfectly."
