LIGHT FOR ARCHITECTURE AND ENVIRONMENT

The inspiration for the lighting design of the 10-story flagship store, located in Tokyo’s most upscale shopping district, was a classic Chanel tweed. The lighting of this contemporary, architectural icon embodies the mega-luxurious identity of the fashion house. Its two-foot deep curtain wall controls sunlight integrating glazing, electrochromic film, metal louvers and white LEDs. Custom electronics provide precise control of the view, pixel brightness, and shade position. The result is a shimmering skin of artistic imagery using light and spectacle to unite the building and brand.
