In showcases, premium goods are consciously brought into focus. For maximum impact, this display is curated and staged down to the last detail. When it comes to consumer products such as jewellery or accessories, the incentive to buy is already triggered at this point. In exhibitions and museums, the showcase is of greater importance, as it provides the framework for often very small objects that require the utmost attention and special protection.
Showcase lighting in the museum should simultaneously emphasise and protect the exhibits. Tiny, technologically advanced LED luminaires with low heat emission inside the showcase effectively stage the exhibits with precise points of light. Particularly sensitive objects may only be illuminated from outside the showcase. The aim is to minimise disturbing light reflections and to make the enclosing glass pane as invisible as possible. This helps to experience the exhibited object even more directly and intimately.
The ideal presentation draws the viewer's attention to the special features of the displayed goods or exhibits, making their richness of detail visible. NANO and the related PICO and PICO SUPPORT product families were developed for glare-free use on shelves and in showcases to do just that. Premium-quality and product-friendly LED solutions with excellent colour rendering provide intensive illumination with minimal heat generation. This is particularly important for sensitive materials as well as for premium products such as handmade jewellery or fine leather goods. Variation between different colour temperatures creates variety for the eye and sets brilliant accents. The brilliance is achieved primarily through many, individual points of light - such as by using NANO products, which are characterized by small light point spacing. Light directed from an angle in different colour temperatures increases its sparkling effect. In addition, luminaires in showcases should be visually restrained so as not to distract from the items on display.
Our showcase lighting products are designed specifically for display cases and shelving. All products are characterised by a glare-free, focussed lighting quality. This is ideal for showing sales or art objects authentically, haptically, and in their richness of detail. With a colour rendering index of CRI ≥ 95 and R9 (= saturated red) > 90 the product family illuminates valuable exhibits almost true to nature, respecting the artistic concept.
The unusual exhibition concept by Sichau & Walter Architekten BDA left the building shell behind. It presents the collection in darkened rooms whose floors, ceilings and walls are sprayed anthracite.
