Fagerhult Light Hygena Stores with the 1300 lm Xicato Spot Module

Hygena, owned by the kitchen group Nobia, is one of the best-known kitchen brands in France. Complete kitchen solutions are offered from about 127 wholly owned stores. All shops are between 100 and 600 m², and include exhibition, shop and office area.

Hygena wanted to refurbish their shops at the end of 2011 and a part of this was to change the lighting. Fagerhult was contacted to replace existing LED luminaires where color and glare were issues.

The LED module selected by Fagerhult for this task was the 1300lm Xicato Spot Module, with a Correlated Color Temperature of 3000K and a Color Rendering Index of 80+. It was selected for its all-round performance including energy saving, perfect uniformity and sustained light quality (in terms of color point and lumen maintenance), all achieved via the foundation ‘Corrected Cold Phosphor Technology™’. Xicato LED modules have seen vastly increasing usage since their launch in 2008, including by Fagerhult in such areas as retail, offices and museums, though globally retail uptake has been most prevalent.

Fagerhult designed an optimized lighting solution with downlighters and pendants which resulted in about half the number of luminaires previously used, yet giving 30% more light.

"Fagerhult developed a new solution for us that gave more and better light, cost less in investment and less in running costs.", says Per Kaufmann Head of Continental European Retail at Nobia.  "A total LED solution for a future-proof light,” summarized Delphine Rousset, Retail Lighting Solutions, Fagerhult.

• Luminaires: project versions of Fagerhult’s Noc 1300 lumen, developed specifically for Hygena, incorporating Xicato’s XSM 1300
• Roll out: total of 117 Hygena shops in France
