    The Project


    What would it look like if supermarket shopping was pure joy? If there were cosy lounge areas, WiFi, abundant parking spaces, advanced ordering online with collection from lockers and plenty of room for a wide range of shopping experiences?  


    This would definitely entice a lot of people in, strengthen EDEKA's market position and set new standards for the industry. With this in mind, the EDEKA construction department has devoted particular attention to its ultramodern flagship store in Gaimersheim – with an imposing glass facade, varied shop architecture and long-range appeal. All perfectly underpinned by its brand new lighting concept.

    The Solution

    EDEKA had a clear idea of what its ideal result should look like. However, sometimes original ideas are thwarted by technical restrictions. Philips was therefore involved as consultant throughout the entire process of planning the lighting system.


    An EDEKA-blue strip of light in the façade greets customers from afar, together with a welcoming light that shines through the glass façade. In the entrance area Philips luminous textile with dynamic content help get customers in the mood for shopping. Efficient outdoor LED lights provide excellent visibility in the car park and light the way to the shop.


    The foundation for all this is our intelligent StoreWise concept, which excels in its flexibility, superior efficiency and sustainability. Developed especially for grocery stores, it combines modern LED lighting with state-of-the-art control technology. Sensors and preprogrammed light scenarios make light work for Store Manager Franz Käs. And he can make individual adjustments if he wishes at any time via touch panel or tablet.

    Thomas Schulte and Nico Kessler from the EDEKA construction department are impressed: “We were given excellent advice by Philips and have ended up with brilliant lighting solutions for our flagship store.”
