Lighting Solutions

Work

Creating a flexible and aesthetically attractive workplace that inspires creativity is essential to office design. In a people-centric approach era, light plays an important role in improving the well-being of the employee as well as branding. More and More corporates using light to define corporate identity to lure brilliant minds. This philosophy includes optimum glare control with high visual comfort that enable people to concentrate better and interact more efficiently. With this in mind, ERCO has continually optimised its lighting tools to provide high standards with long-term cost-efficiency.

Culture

The diversity of the museum landscape is enormous. From traditional to contemporary, they have a common denominator – each sees its mission as collecting, preserving, communicating and presenting the stories. From design flexibility for contemporary showcasing to conserving ancient artefacts, light is as important for visual experience as conservation concerns. ERCO lighting tools offer precision, high colour rendering and lower damage factor that give exhibition organizers the broadest possible scope from the neutral presentation of objects through to dramatical accentuation.

Shop

In the era of online shopping, the strength of over-counter retailing is to be found in the real, spatial experiencing brands and merchandise. To reinforce this sustainable impression of the direct shopping experience, light has established itself as an indispensable medium for creating atmosphere. From using light to set hierarchy for new arrivals to arouse tempting emotions, retailers and lighting designers consistently communicating the messages across the brand environment.

Community

Economical solutions with high visual comfort are crucial for the illumination of administration and transport buildings since they have to support low long-term operational costs. Light in those buildings facilitates orientation and therefore helps to ensure the safety of large crowds. ERCO’s wide-range of effective lighting solutions deliver an optimal environment for administration, education and work with a focus on the requirement of the public, but also the individual. 

Contemplation

The language of light is pan-cultural as light in any religion is a distinct symbol of the divine. Light in sacred places creates a contemplative atmosphere for religious gatherings. In any place of worship, light helps to direct the attention to essential things. ERCO illuminates both ancient and modern places of worship using light to produce a separate yet timeless language. ERCO glare-free lighting tools provide optimal visual comfort for the congregation as well as sustainability cost-efficiency.  

Living

Designing the places in which we live deserves our fullest attention, as they mirror our attitude to life and provide a place of refuge from everyday life. Working, eating, reading, sleeping, playing, thinking – hardly any other place combines such diversity of functions in a compacted space as the places in which we live. ERCO lighting solutions bring flexibility to any situation. Bright and pleasantly illuminated rooms with balanced brightness contrasts convey a sense of security in our living environment.

Public

Parks, public places, monuments, and façades shape the face of a city at night with their illumination. Their glow provides orientation for various user groups, contributes to safety, enhances special details through accentuation, and creates atmosphere. ERCO lighting tools for the outdoor area are designed to define urban space after dark with exceptionally efficient LED light and are optimally shielded to recede unobtrusively into the background. 

Hospitality

Hospitality projects today are a testing ground and platform for new ideas, concepts and trends. The promise of exquisite cuisine is underlined by an interior of unique character. Be it design hotel, themed restaurant or temporary bar, every concept applied to hospitality or gastronomy requires a scenic frame to carry and communicate the relevant theme. ERCO provides architectural lighting solutions with a diversity of scenographic options for room situations that convey enjoyment and pleasure.
