Aureol Frescos Light Up Harvey Nichols


The Shambles is the latest development in the Exchange Square area in Manchester, U.K., which was the worst hit by the IRA bomb in 1996. With 11 new stores including Harvey Nicols it is set to confirm its status as the retail heart of the city.

For the Harvey Nicols project lighting designers Campbell Design were presented with particular challenges in adapting the interior to be suitable for a high end retailer.

Part of their brief included providing 3-circuit track on all sides of the display window (pictured above) to allow the Harvey Nicols in-house team to do what they wanted. The result is a striking display featuring Ardiis Aureol Fresco asymmetric wall wash floods that are ideal for both washing the wall and controlled area lighting.

The Fresco's contemporary design achieves its flowing, understated lines from a combination of pressure die-casting and extrusions. This was particularly important, the in-store team felt, when the units were in full view of all passers-by.
