How can light be used effectively to accentuate the quality of fine food? Optimal colour rendering is a must, more so when light is used to maximise the appeal of meat products. With this in mind, the new store of delicatessen chain Casa Tió in Barcelona chose ERCO LED lighting tools to present its array of regional specialities in a fresh and appetising light.
Casa Tió is a small chain of delicatessen supermarkets in and around Barcelona, offering mostly meat specialities as well as milk, cheese, eggs and wine from the Catalonian region. Opened in 2015, the store on Avinguda Borbó in the heart of Barcelona was conceived with an entirely new interior design as a prototype for other Casa Tió stores. The zonal lighting solution, which forms part of the concept, relies entirely on ERCO LED lighting tools for maximum flexibility using a single range of luminaires. To blend in with the store’s black ceiling, Optec spotlights finished in black were mounted on a black ERCO track system. The result is a sophisticated display of gourmet foods and products presented to perfection in light that remains virtually invisible to the customer.
