    Dutch supermarket chain Dekamarkt gets a custom lighting retrofit, with recyclable 3D-printed luminaires

     

    Concept stores are all about discovery and experience. A dynamic concept store requires a beautiful lighting design, highly customizable, connected, and scalable. With sustainability as one of their core values, Dekamarkt, a Dutch supermarket chain, choose a lighting solution that would improve their carbon footprint.

    A 3D printed makeover

     

    One of their 81 supermarket locations was retrofitted with 350 3D-printed luminaires, custom designed to fit the existing lighting installation. The 3D-printed luminaries are built with sustainability in mind. The base material is a polycarbonate that is strong, high-quality and 100% recyclable.

    Our new store concept uses set-up and colors to create a unique shopping story per section, with sustainable materials at their core. We wanted connected lighting in beautiful and highly customizable luminaires to suit this concept. Signify 3D printing technology provides high-quality connected lighting in tailor-made luminaires from recyclable materials. Moreover, Signify’s designers made a significant contribution to bringing our unique light concept to life."

    These fixtures, paired with the Interact Retail lighting system, allow the Dekamarkt to have centralized control. This creates a dynamic shopping experience by tailoring the lighting scenes to different sections of their supermarket.

    The system’s ease of use and versatility, coupled with a strong sustainability profile and cost-effectiveness, made the project a success. Because of this, Dekamarkt plans on implementing this concept in an additional 30 stores. “Our new store concept uses set-up and colors to create a unique shopping story per section, with sustainable materials at their core.

    We made lighting smarter and more connected in homes and on streets throughout New York State. We worked in Vietnam and in the U.S. to improve education for bright minds. We took pioneering steps in lighting for indoor crop cultivation in Russia, and sustainable shopping experiences in the Netherlands.

    These are just some examples of the work we do, and all these highlights come from our Signify 2020 Annual Report.
