The lighting project
The lighting renovation of Cukrarna was probably one of the biggest challenges that our commercial partner in Slovenia, the company Arcadia Lightwear, had to face in its professional career. For 30 years, Arcadia Lightwear has been providing sophisticated lighting solutions to the most renowned and successful Slovenian architects and designers, offering a highly qualified support service.
According to the selected lighting scheme, an even wall grazing effect had to emphasize the new interior layout and its tridimensional spatial volumes. Owing to an array of PARADE L-3 linear bars in RGBW color configuration with elliptical wide optics installed on the ceiling, the emitted light perfectly reflects on the internal surfaces delivering an unexpected WOW effect. An eye-catching color changing game catches the visitors’ attention involving them in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere.
As the many windows are a tangible link to the past identity of the building, their enhancement was considered fundamental for the completion of the lighting scheme. Our Eklipse in RGBW with elliptical wide optics were therefore chosen to beautifully enlighten the wide and deep intrados of the 318 windows of the building. Internally, they now result perfectly enhanced by soft or intense color hues, which can either match or contrast with the general interiors shades. Externally, they deliver a peculiar character to the building accentuating in bright, colored light the glass windows, now visible from far away.
Cukrarna Gallery represents now a new revolutionary space in the cultural milieu of Ljubljana, a multifunctional hub at the edge of the city center, regenerating with a new lease of life the formerly derelict city area.
