Value is not a static concept. Customer needs and market requirements are constantly changing, so it is important that retailers can identify any new theory or trend that positively influences customers’ buying behavior.

Light is fascinating because it is able to persuade us to make a purchase in a variety of ways. The role of modern retail lighting designer’s is to associate with art and commerce, to communicate the values of a brand and to meet the increasingly demanding needs of customers.

This requires a complex and holistic partnership between architects and designers, between psychology, technology and ergonomics. Each element does not exist apart from the others, and a smart balance of all factors will create a holistic and successful retail experience.
