When furniture shop, Davidson, wanted to change its LED lighting system at its showroom in Chelsea Harbour, London, it opted for Yori Evo fittings from Reggiani.
Davidson is a family-run company that designs, manufactures and installs bespoke, high-end furniture. It works with interior designers, architects, project managers and private clients to provide elegant, unique pieces worldwide.
The original lighting system incorporated wide-beam spotlights that created unwanted glare on the furniture on display and didn’t show the exquisite pieces to their best potential. Lighting Design International (LDI), based in Hammersmith, was approached with a brief to find the right specification of spotlight to eliminate the glare issues and literally show the space in a new and better light.
LDI chose Reggiani’s Yori Evo Box system for its colour rendering index (CRI), a good range of beam angles, and the assortment of accessories to choose from to achieve the perfect illumination via honeycomb louvres and softening lenses.
Working closely with Reggiani, LDI devised a system using a mixture of narrow and medium-beam matt black spotlights that would ‘pinspot’ and highlight each piece of furniture and decorative artefacts on display to make them stand out and provide real impact throughout the showroom.
Using a three-circuit track clip-in system in two and three metre lengths, the medium-beam spots were interspersed between narrow spots over the furniture, specifically arranged to highlight each individual display area within the showroom. Spotlights equipped with a softening lens were used on the wall art, with some spotlights fitted with honeycomb louvres for other areas in the showroom to diffuse any glare.
