We designed and supplied a range of lighting solutions for the Consol retail store based at Cornubia Mall in  Durban.

There were several key considerations for this specific project:

  • Being a glass retail outlet, aesthetics was of particular significance
  • Lighting needed to be adjustable, in order to accommodate a dynamic showroom floor with layout and configurations changing often
  • Considering the multiple applications for the lighting in the store, functionality was also of utmost importance

With these drivers in mind, we took to the drawing board and designed a comprehensive solution encompassing all of Consol’s requests, as outlined below...

A colour temperature of 3000K was chosen to display the unique product of glass as this warmer light colour has a less offensive refraction/glare off the glass product. Moreover, it displays the translucent product extremely well and creates a warm in-house ambience.

The Colour temperature aside, a high CRI (Colour Rendering Index) was also required. The light, although warm, needed to be as natural as possible. On the sales floor, a CRI of 80+ was achieved.

At the back of the Consol store is a warehouse. For this area, we opted for the 5000K colour temperature, as this cooler temperature is more functional to work in. With a height of 5m, we opted for the MARS LED Ebay linear light.

Overall, Consol was extremely pleased with the design and installation of these fittings, and were impressed with our ability to deliver on all of their specific requests for the project.
