The Conscious

A Conscious person is someone that cares.  Cares about the environment, quality and the origin of their fashion garments.  They care about the way they were created and produced, and what effect they have on our environment.  They don’t mind paying for quality and want to make a subtle visual statement with their outfit.  The value-based statement is however more important.

Slow fashion

As the wheels spin faster and faster in the fashion industry a counter trend has evolved. Slow fashion is about making products that last with a high level of design and quality, rather than garments that are cheap that you wear once.

Conscious Living

Conscious Living means responsibility for those around us, citizens of the world and the world itself.  More companies are becoming conscious since the values of consumers and entrepreneurs in many cases move towards a more responsible lifestyle. Sustainability and transparency are key words for these companies and consumers.

Blond light and interior

The trend of responsibility has given the opportunity to create shops with a natural design, both when it comes to interior and lighting.  The interior is often in wood and the lighting is natural without accents.

The Conscious Shop

The changing room is where choices and decisions around a purchase are made and therefore one of the most important areas of a shop.  In a shop that focuses on genuine quality of their products a high quality lighting is crucial for the customer to be able to grasp the quality of the fabrics.  The natural feeling is achieved with soft and even lighting and an interior in fair and natural colours.

“A place where choices are made.”

Changing Room

The Shop

There are a few general ideas when it comes to lighting in changing rooms. The aim is to cover the whole body with vertical light from, for example, the mirror. If the light is directed only from above it is impossible to cover the whole body. By adding accent lighting you increase the experience and the texture of the clothes.


The lighting design to apply depends on the feeling you want to achieve and also the kind of garments the customers will try on.  If there is one particular kind of item, for example swim wear, the lighting should be designed for that purpose.  If there is as shop with a large range of products the lighting needs to be less specific, more versatile.


Changing Area


Below you can see different ways of lighting a changing room, both with accents or pendants.  LED give the possibility to try out different colour temperatures.

Accent light illuminates the customer from the front.  This enhance shapes and the outline of the garment.  Accentuated lighting with a warm colour temperature like 2800 K has a cosy feeling and complimentary colour of the face and body.  The cove light gives an indirect, vertical light.

Here is the same solution as the top right but with 3000 K on the accent lighting and 4000 K cove light.

This solution has a pendant with 3000 K and no accent lighting.  The cove light is 3000 K behind the mirror.  This solution has a soft feeling and there are very few accents.

In this solution there is 4000 K from the pendant, cove light behind the mirror and a diffused vertical light from the luminaire in the corner to get light on the back as well.

Save Energy

Every luminaire must have a purpose and not waste light on empty spaces.  A well-planned lighting design with the correct amount of luminaires and the right levels is a good way to save energy.

Controls enable dimming the light levels and this will save energy.   A dimmed LED-module also has a longer life.


There is possibility to control the lighting with the purpose of saving energy but more importantly to have a choice in achieving the light level for your personal taste.  Having a low light level when entering makes it comfortable to try on clothes.

Zone Evo

Zone Evo is a family of spotlights, recessed and track-mounted, with conical design. It has an efficient segmented reflector ensuring excellent visual performance making it is especially suited to Illuminating high quality designs and fabrics and for use in the shop that sells such quality garments.  Zone Evo is available in different lumen packages, in Rich and Glow and with an adaptor for iTrack.

ODD – Window Frame

The opal LED tube in the corner of the changing room creates a cove light. It will create a cosy feeling and will add a comfortable light from the side.


Lumiline is a discreet linear LED strip that opens up for a variety of imaginative lighting solutions – integrated in shelves, mirrors, stairs, corridors, wall interior or as a cove light giving atmosphere.

Lighting Control

Lighting Control

In this concept the lighting is used to have low light level when entering the changing room.  The lighting will be low and comfortable when entering but has the ability to increase the light level as you try on clothes.  This will also save energy.

Crystal Clear

In our environmental initiative Crystal Clear we highlight the importance of thinking sustainably when creating future proofed lighting solutions.  When you work with Fagerhult, you can rest assured that your lighting will be economical, as well as kind to the environment and human health, while at the same time stimulating creativity and promoting well-being.

Controlling the lighting in a shop gives the retailer various possibilities to save energy and increase the experience in the shop.  There are several different ways to activate the controls depending on what function you would like.

Presence detector

When someone is approaching you can increase the light level in a certain area.  It will create interest to approach this area and also save energy since the lighting does not have to be on all the time.

Manual controls

Manual control means that someone, perhaps a shop assistant, presses a button which activates a pre-set scene or sequence.  This could be useful in a changing room if you would like to adjust the lighting to fit customer’s specific needs.

Scheldual controls

The easiest way of managing controls may be to have a pre-programmed, time set schedule.  At a certain time the lighting will change based on the lighting needs at that time.

Daylight sensors

Dim down the lighting in the shop window to save energy when there is a lot of natural light coming from the outside.
