Zapata is a cutting-edge retailer that sells vintage-style fashion to young shoppers. Its unique store concept fuses industrial-style décor, rustic Mexican gear, garage sale furniture and distressed elements. However, its old lighting system did little to encourage store exploration.
With its newly-furnished interior and colorful clothing range, Zapata was almost ready to dazzle and delight customers. But the existing illumination was lacking in spatiality and drama, and there was no difference in led downlight levels between the inner and outer areas. The shop floor was left as an exposed area that did nothing to guide shoppers, so Zapata asked lighting designer Lichtspiel for help.
With some carefully placed RYGH lamps, Lichtspeil created dramatic, exciting ambience. The store interior was kept in dark colors, including the walls and ceiling. Philips MASTERColour CDM Evolution spotlights were installed using narrow beam angles of just 10° and 20°, creating an intriguing contrast between light and shade.
