The Videri team strives to arrive at, in Lundy’s words, “that Goldilocks sweet spot” in every cocoa bean. They were likewise intent on discovering the sweet spot in lighting solutions. Cree Lighting delivered.
Videri installed 20 Cree Lighting A19 Professional Series LED bulbs in the main part of the store. The A19 features a combination of comfortable omnidirectional light, high-color rendering, instant-on and quiet dimming.
“We wanted the café and the store to have a rustic feel,” Lundy explains, “because that’s the style of the building. At the same time, our brand is a little more modern, so we want that balance. I feel like the lighting keeps everything warm; it keeps the space rustic – but it just elevates things. It’s clean.”
At the core of Videri’s mission is a commitment to making ethical and environmentally sound decisions, and energy efficiency was a critical consideration in selecting a lighting solution.
“Our materials are compostable and we’re always sourcing fair trade and organic ingredients,” Lundy says. “From a sourcing standpoint, it’s important for us to bring products into our space that have a low impact and are environmentally friendly.”
The ENERGY STAR® certified A19 helps advance that commitment. The A19 is a highly efficient lamp, providing as much as 88 percent energy savings as compared with incandescent bulbs.
Videri also installed six C-Lite™ LED Wrap lights in its production area, where the sharpness of the light is of utmost importance. The C-Lite LED is likewise engineered to deliver energy savings.
