With the rapid development of the commodity economy, the whole people have entered the era of quality life and quality consumption, paying more attention to the consumer experience, and more and more people with their friends and families go to a shopping center on the weekend. The development of the times, people have long since given up the pursuit of spiritual satisfaction, more is the pursuit of functional experience. The competition in the business center who can take the lead in satisfying the customer's experience will be the final winner.
Talking about the lighting design of too many commercial spaces, today we will talk about the insignificant but indispensable space of the business center - the restroom.
If the restrooms in the shopping center are still in the stage of “having” and “enough”, then don’t doubt why customers are getting less and less.
Let’s see those restroom unusual but like by people!
The washroom is located on the top floor of a 15-storey building in Guadalajara, Mexico. The washroom is built on an open elevator shaft and, according to the architect, is based on the concepts of “transparency” and “material simplicity”. When you are in the toilet, you can see the 15-acre abyss under your feet.
The restroom is located in the Grand Canal Business District Shopping Center (ADM) in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, with the theme of “Jungle Party·THE JUNGLE”. With a lovely animal pattern as the main image, the color matching is lively and vivid. When I walk into the toilet, I think I am mistakenly entering the jungle party scene.
Tianjin Joy City teamed up with Coca-Cola and U/2/B to create the first theme bathroom in the country. The style of painting is this:
▲Fin dolphin theme restroom
▲Fashion theme restroom
The characteristic bathroom is attractive enough, but the lighting needs to be stressful!
First of all, you need to know: What kind of light does the restroom need? What would you do there?
Basic lighting principle
The general lighting application of the restroom provides a bright light environment throughout the space, with an illumination of more than 300 lx. The lighting design should take into account the reflectivity of each surface of the room. For example, using a darker color material will increase the total luminous flux output of the illumination.
The design of the bathroom lighting requires a certain task lighting to meet complex visual tasks such as makeup. The most important of these is the mirror illumination, which illuminates the face evenly, without shadows and without glare to the person in front of the mirror.
The luminaires should be directed at people, not on the mirror; the reflectance of adjacent walls should be 50% or higher; the brightness of the luminaire should not exceed 2100 cd·m-2; the installation position of the luminaire should be 60° outside the cone . A method of installing a linear luminaire on both sides of a mirror is usually employed.
Look in the mirror, be sure to be beautiful
The mirror headlights not only need to satisfy the functionality, but also can be used to make up the appearance of the female compatriots who love beauty, or to clearly observe their own appearance. It is required to use a light source with high color rendering, especially for red. The R9 is embodied to limit the lighting effect of the skin color.
Safety is more important than anything
The fixtures in the bathroom should follow the safety principle. Waterproofing is a must. It is required to waterproof the lamps to meet the IP54 standard. In addition, the lamps that the human body can reach should be remembered to avoid sharp corners. It is best not to choose a bare bulb with a large amount of heat.
Example: Decorate your mirror with hidden light strips. "Hide" the lights!
Choose a chic chandelier. The lights don't have to be very regular, let the bathroom tide up!
