Experience a showroom like no other
A showroom designed to impress and inspire! Our latest commercial project, the Hart & Co. showroom is full of the latest appliance technology and fit-outs and we’ve applied lighting in a way that immerses you in the showroom experience.
One crucial design aspect of this project is the lack of a ceiling. Working with a raw warehouse roof, we had to incorporate lighting with a suspended approach. This gave us the chance to have a more unique and creative way of applying the lighting.
Impact and Guidance
As you enter the showroom you are instantly impacted by the cluster lighting of the suspended Line Opals. Scattered throughout the ceiling space, the Line Opals lead your eyes through the showroom and down into the next section of the showroom floor. This technique has been used through the entire showroom, guiding the customers through each section, whilst illuminating the products and the showroom floor.
As you enter the active kitchen display of the showroom, a low ceiling is present. To compensate for this, we used the Edge 100 downlights to provide ambient light. These downlights feature a shallow heatsink and a deep set baffle, which allowed for a seamless lighting solution.
Whilst exploring each part of the showroom you will notice our Core 70 Tracks, which have been used for both ambient and task lighting. The Core 70 Track was perfect for this application, as it can adjust up to 90° and rotate up to 350°, giving us complete control on where we wanted to direct the light emission.
Seamless Design, Entry Way Lighting
As you enter each new section of the showroom, you walk through a wooden entry way, a unique and decorative entrance to each section. Constructed of wooden slats, we needed to apply lighting that was seamless and didn’t take away from the wooden design. We opted for the Core, it’s seamless canopy design allowed for an easy install and the simplistic contour of the Core doesn’t disrupt the lines of the wooden slats.
Linear Outdoor Lighting
On the outside of the showroom we have used the Flow LED Strip, with it’s IP67 rating and it’s smooth glow, it was an easy choice for illuminating the building’s exposed brick feature outside.
We’re open 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 12:30pm on Saturdays.
Our lighting consultants are always available during these hours to help you with any solutions you may need.

Where to Buy
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode; a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LEDs use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting (hello power bill savings!) and also have a much longer lifespan, roughly 25,000 – 50,000 hours depending on the ‘globe’. LED’s are also eco-friendly, they don’t contain any harmful mercury, they don’t emit any CO2 and they can be recycled without harming the environment.
Kelvin (K) is a measurement of light colour and is not a measurement of brightness, 3000k is a warm white, whereas 4000k is a cool white. The higher the number of Kelvin, the cooler the light. Think of the ember warmth of candles or firelight (which is 1000k-2000k), compared to the blueish tint of daylight, which is around 5000k. The colour temperature will impact a number of factors, including the ambience of a space.
Our lighting consultants lean toward a 3000k as it is not too warm/yellow toned and will therefore provide a clean white finish that is also still soft. However this can differ as some people may prefer a cooler white to others. For example, homes that feature a monochromatic palette of whites and blacks will suit a 4000k better – to bring out the whites and not create a yellow wash.
Lumens are a measurement of the total amount of visible light from a light source, this is the term used in place of wattage on the old scale. Typically, closer to 100-lumen per watt is very efficient – a standard downlight at 10.5W should be closer to 900lumen – this means it is performing at a higher level with less power.
CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index, which measures the ability of a light to accurately reproduce the colour of various objects. The closer to 100, the higher the quality of the light source.
