Six years ago, Manfred Keilwerth took over the bakery and pastry shop Wackerl. Since its predecessor had hardly changed anything since the construction of the building, the lighting was also quite outdated. Twenty-five-year-old fluorescent tubes no longer satisfied the requirements of the new managing director. “It was important to me that the customer could see and judge the pastry correctly. It also has to be appetizing,” he says.
Ledxon sales representative Andreas Mussack visited the bakery on site. “He advised us in great detail and explained everything exactly,” recalls Keilwerth. The lighting concept has convinced him. Instead of the old T8 tubes, the ledxon team installed modern Downlights in the ceiling. Tracklights hang over the counter, which can be aligned differently depending on requirements. The counter itself and the bread rack on the back of the wall are illuminated by DLB-B asym light bars.
Of course, the focus of a bakery is always on the products. “Our DLB-B asym draws the light directly onto the product using a lens,” explains Andreas Mussack. “Pretzels, cakes and sandwiches are immediately catching the attention of customers.”
The corresponding light coluor for pastries also emphasizes individual peculiarities, such as a crispy crust in the bread or the delicate yellow of a freshly baked roll. Manfred Keilwerth likes the new lighting: “It’s a soft light, which looks nice and illuminates everything beautifully.” He thinks it’s great that it puts 100% of its bakery products in the limelight. “It encourages customers to buy,” he says. And visually, the lights give the bakery a modern look with their clear design.
