An Optical Illusion
Oculus Eyewear Store – Cape Town
Mega-lite has supplied two of its most elegant power rail luminaires for the showpiece Oculus Eyewear store in De Waterkant road, Greenpoint. Perfectly positioned on the second floor of the Mirage building the store transforms the way the retail environment is experienced, offering visitors a more sophisticated optical and eyewear-shopping experience.
A light-smith in the industry, Mega-Lite selected two feature power rail luminaires to augment the store’s characteristics. The chic designed Phoenix 3 and the Nebula 201 luminaires were the perfect duo to achieve this. A customized Single-Phase Trunking System, masked the ceiling slope creating the optical illusion of an even level ceiling and lighting layout.
Managing Director, Rolf Keller, said “ the sloped ceiling presented a considerable amount of challenges in certain areas of the store, it was vital to ensure we had a good delivery of lumen output and a wide range of beam angles to allow us to create the right ambience for these particular areas”.
A request by the store owners to retrofit the imported sound system while maintaining the clean architectural lines resulted in the same pragmatic approach Mega-Lite takes on all its projects. The speakers were customised by Mega-Lite and fitted with it’s innovative track adaptors and mounted onto the Trunking System, blending in seamlesly with the store aesthetics. The Oculus Store is an art piece which required the utmost attention to detail as it rightfully deserved.
