Awards 2022 - Retail & Hospitality

>> View all winners of the DALI Lighting Awards 2022


The Winner in the Retail and Hospitality category is Delmatic for Battersea Power Station.

This iconic building in London as been transformed into a mixed-use destination, and Delmatic’s DALI-2 lighting management and emergency monitoring solution is used throughout the site.

The retail and leisure areas occupy the turbine halls and boiler house, with three tiers of shops surrounding a central atrium. Overlooking each of the turbine halls, the original control rooms offer bar, hospitality and event spaces.

The precise dimming and scene-setting capabilities of the DALI-2 system enable flexible lighting layouts and scenes to be applied throughout the building, which contributes to a welcoming ambience and facilitates wayfinding.

The DALI system is integrated with the DMX lighting that illuminates the building exterior.

User interfaces and applications continuously monitor the complete lighting ecosystem and display real-time granular data and intelligent analytics on lighting performance. This includes DALI-2 emergency light monitoring and testing, as well as individual lamp and driver failure diagnostics.

The judges noted the flexibility and versatility of the site-wide DALI solution, enabling lighting scenarios to be configured to precisely suit the individual requirements within the various spaces.

This category included two hotel projects with strong lighting-design elements, and several retail sites including car dealerships.

Philips Dynalite was Highly Commended for the Täby Centrum Shopping Mall in Stockholm, Sweden.

In this retrofit project, DALI was leveraged to provide human-centric lighting control to enhance the visitor experience, save energy, reduce operating costs, and to enabling monitoring and control.

The project used 6500 DALI luminaires, and the interoperability afforded by a standardized protocol gave the flexibility to choose between different lighting vendors to complement the existing architecture and furnishings.

Upgrading to a DALI system was described as easy and cost-effective, due to simplified wiring, digital configuration, and clear system setup.

Daylight harvesting and lux sensors maintain suitable illumination levels, and DALI data enable proactive repairs.

The judges praised this very good example of a retrofit project in which DALI not only helped to reduce energy usage and meet sustainability targets, but also created a more comfortable environment for visitors.
