The new fashion exhibition is to be entered through a tunnel which allows the adaptation of the visitor‘s eye on the 50 lx conservation level. The large-scaled cabinets with their impressive glass front and the uniform colored surfaces are designed for the optimized presentation of the fashion mannequins. The lighting elements are hidden well and defining the space in a perfect manner. The lighting components are a linear and diffuse wallwash and backlight luminaire, a linear and indirect cove lighting for the inscriptions and a ceiling channel with a row of adjustable fiber optic spots as the main exhibit illumination element. All lighting components guarantee a very good color rendering with a CRI over 90.
