All-round stylish commercial lighting

Commercial lighting can be beautiful as well as functional - take a look how

Form and function. That's always been the goal for commercial lighting, and now it's easier than ever to achieve. Whether you're crafting a retail space, making a workspace that feels comfortable and productive, or even specifying the interior of a commercial yacht, there are plenty of ways for lighting design to have the perfect look and offer versatile efficiency.

A more welcoming workspace

The days of office staff working under the glare of fluorescent strip lights are fading fast. In modern workspaces, character and comfort are just as important to productivity as ergonomic commercial interior design. Thoughtfully designed lighting not only enhances mood, but has been shown to boost productivity levels, creating a workspace where ideas flourish and innovation thrives.

In The Forest Gate Works, for example, a co-working space in East London, Astro's carefully designed lighting brought thoughtful illumination to every corner of this converted railway arch with the multi-directional Ascoli Four Bar.

Fresh ideas for retail

The thing about first impressions is that you only ever get to make one. And with expectations for offices and retail units higher than ever, the right lighting is crucial to setting the tone the moment someone steps through the door.

In retail spaces, lighting plays a pivotal role in shaping customer experiences. Shoppers seek environments that are inviting, visually appealing, and easy to navigate. Strategic lighting can be used to not only highlight certain products, but to also set the ambience, influencing purchasing decisions and fostering a sense of comfort and satisfaction. Lighting can be the difference between a mundane environment and one that inspires, captivates, and leaves a lasting impression on all who enter.

A spectrum of smart solutions

The fact is, architects and specifiers today have plenty of choice when it comes to selecting commercial lighting that looks the part and offers real practicality - regardless of use and, within reason, budget. At Astro, our lighting has augmented the design of luxury yachts with the soft beams of Enna Floor luminaire - and at the same time, designers have used our lighting to bring a homely feel to student accommodation with versatile Fosso reading lights.

But ultimate flexibility comes from products that look good anywhere, and flex to fit all kinds of environments. That's the thinking behind many of our products - our track lighting being a perfect example. This is an effortlessly versatile solution which offers contemporary looks and customisable spotlighting, that seamlessly blends into hotel rooms, retail spaces and design studios.

Edgy and creative or indulgent and relaxing, commercial environments don't feel right without well-considered lighting design to provide the right ambience. Thankfully, there are more ways than ever to use stylish lighting that does the job perfectly.
