ERCO specialises in architectural lighting.


Digital Lichtbericht 5

Published in May 2015
The fact that ERCO works alongside many major labels like adidas, Camper, ZARA or PRADA, but also smaller shops, in partnerships extending over years and decades enables a close dialogue and allows us to stay on top of the latest developments in shop lighting – as the ever more dramatic illumination in shops from Milan to Prague and Berlin to Seattle.

The need to stand out in both character and style is one of the major issues in brand communication today – and is optimally achieved with the right spatial and lighting concept. Be it trends of the world’s major fashion capitals, regional delicacies or last-century vintage furniture: The approach taken by major labels and extraordinary boutiques in presenting their products and ideas in the right light reflects in each case in their glamorous, minimalist or traditional scenography. Corporate lighting punctuates their approach subtly, makes shopping an experience, guides through the premises and accentuates the qualities of the products. Opting for LED lighting additionally ensures savings in both energy and costs – thanks to energy efficiency, long life and low maintenance of the LEDs.

ERCO also adopts a clear approach. Since the 1960s, the company in Lüdenscheid has stood for innovation and quality in architectural lighting – and for thinking in light, not luminaires. This idea has now been taken to the next level, and in 2015 we became the first traditional luminaire manufacturer with a redesigned range based completely on LED technology. We have summarised the broad potential of digital architectural lighting for the lighting design in shops, offices, museums, public authorities or churches for you here. Our product designers understood early on that digital light requires its own design – the iF Design Award promptly acknowledged this with the iF Gold Award 2015 for Lightscan.

Sit back and enjoy the diversity of design options with ERCO digital light in a wide range of applications for big and small budgets – with three action-packed ERCO films in the style of “short cuts” set up as a cinematic experience for all designers working with light.

Curtains up for the international world of shopping in ERCO light!

Digital light for retail and chain stores, supermarkets and car dealerships
International fashion labels can often be recognised as soon as you enter a store, just by their lighting.

Be it car dealership, shopping mall or luxury boutique, furniture store or delicatessen: ERCO projects all around the world demonstrate the enormous spectrum for designers to use light with maximum efficiency as a distinctive quality of ERCO spotlights and downlights in shops.
