The Bijenkorf is refurbishing it’s stores and has assigned Beersnielsen for the lighting design. We have been working on lighting designs for the Bijenkorf Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Amstelveen, Maastricht and Eindhoven. Since the stores all have to stay open during the renovations, the lighting designs are divided in phases. We already made lighting designs for several shopping floors, central areas, restaurants, bar, entrance areas, exteriors and some quick fixes for parts that will be renovated later on.
We have been involved in the whole refurbishing process. We made temporary lighting designs, final lighting designs, technical designs – mostly in cooperation with the supplier – and finally we tuned the light. We also trained the teams in the stores about how to do this, so the lighting experience will be maintained.
The result is a crisp and balanced lighting design that make the Bijenkorf a special and joyful place to visit.
