Light animation at the entrance

With a total sales area of 101,000 square meters and 224 shops, the Mall of Scandinavia is one of the largest shopping centers in Scandinavia. Behind the 640 million euro project is the French real estate giant Unibail-Rodamco from Paris, which is breaking new ground in order to compete with online trading, among other things.

Among other things, the Designer Gallery was set up in order to attract new customer groups, in which smaller labels present themselves in pop-up stores. The heart of the shopping complex, however, is the 240-meter-long flagship mall, where many of the major international fashion chains present themselves with an eight-meter-high, two-storey façade.

The fact that the customer is entering a shopping center of superlatives with the Mall of Scandinavia is already evident in the entrance area: the Stockholm lighting designers "WSP Ljusdesign" and "ÅF Lighting" staged the entire entrance with an impressive dynamic light installation. The planners used 535 instalight 1060 recessed floor lights and 700 linear ceiling lights with LEDLUX technology in an aluminum profile. While the floor lights illuminate the entrance area from the concrete pavement, the ceiling lights of the same length on the glass paneling at a height of around eight meters represent an exact optical counterpart.

Last but not least, the filigree and at the same time robust design of the "instalight 1060" recessed floor light convinced the planners. All lights were manufactured in a special version that can be controlled in three sub-segments, each in the light colors RGB and white. On the one hand, this allows particularly finely resolved light animations, but on the other hand it also requires the synchronous control of around 15,000 data channels. During the entire duration of the project, InstaLighting guaranteed on-site support via the Swedish sales partner Kungsbacka Lighting. Thanks to the thorough preparation and detailed project documentation, the installation and commissioning of the entire system could be carried out independently by the local electrician.

Just in time for the opening of the Mall of Scandinavia, the entrance area shone in a very special light.
