LED lighting is illuminating sites for NIO cars across the major cities of Europe, as their global expansion gathers pace. Their unique offering is to provide a user experience that goes beyond the car showroom, from meetings rooms, labs and galleries to fitness and relaxation rooms.
So far, Bright Green Technology has supplied lighting systems to 3 cities. In each case a different product from our range was used to adapt to the location and deliver optimum lighting for the project.
Sustainability, speed, quality and design focus were all critical to match the brand values of NIO and to complement the overall design.
NIO House Berlin is inspired by the city’s diverse patchwork of neighbourhoods. The design integrates the many contrasting, yet co-existing identities of a city known for diversity, progress, green spaces and the arts.
Bright Green Technology supplied stretch material lightboxes backlit with LED Light Panel for the main showroom ceiling. Our sister company Bright Green Connect provided PRO Range, DALI LED drivers to interface with the lighting control system. The lightboxes were mounted onto a suspension system with custom brackets designed and manufactured by our inhouse team.
With a total floor area of 1,600 square metres, the NIO House Frankfurt encompasses light-flooded rooms and natural elements such as reclaimed wood and terrazzo.
The challenge was the ceiling height and the consequent requirement for shallow boxes leading to the selection of Bright Green Grid to ensure even illumination without any visible dots. We designed, manufactured and assembled custom shallow light boxes, pre-assembled and cabled with the lighting system.
Bright Green Connect once again supplied DALI power and control for this installation.
Bright Green Space was specified to supply structural and lighting design for the flagship site in Rotterdam.
The Rotterdam House is in an industrial style and the concept was to work with the existing features and surfaces of the space. Visitors are guided from the front gallery – where visitors can learn about NIO’s range of cars – to the welcoming clubhouse at the rear.
This change of scene is supported by a gradient in the colour of the floor, walls and ceiling. which gradually transform from neutral white to a warm caramel. Our lighting design matched these colours with a transition area in the centre.
Bright Green Matrix was chosen for this due to the modular design and install flexibility – allowing us to customise the transition and adjust the brightness. Barrisol stretch material was used for the lightboxes.
