This week Joel Weston visited Fox Valley Mall, close to Chicago, for an on-site aiming on the first of many Finish Line Stores that we are designing lighting for in conjunction with CallisonRTKL. We really appreciate the opportunity to work on the store redesigns, as our work will be all over the country!
The lighting design for all store renovations features overhead narrow linear LED pendants inspired by athletic running track lanes. The effect is twofold; the eye is drawn into the store, and this provides plenty of ambient lighting to the merchandise below. The pendants were specially configured with reduced wattage, to not overly light the space and be code compaint in energy stringent jurisdictions, while keeping the density for visual effect. Another goal in the design of the stores was to be as cost effective and maintenance friendly as possible, so only 3 varieties of LED luminaires fixtures are used throughout for maximum effect.
So whether you’re inspired by Usain Bolt or Allyson Felix or just tired of sitting on the couch watching the Olympics, now’s the time to visit a store and get started! There is a store coming close to you, so there are no excuses.
