TUMI Stores Pack a Punch With High-Performing LEDs From Solais

We've been talking about our new and exclusive VioLight technology a LOT lately, right? If you are asking why, you haven't seen it for yourself. Check out our latest case study featuring our Xi24 trackheads with VioLight at the TUMI store in Rockefeller Center, NYC!

Below are some highlights, but take a look at the full TUMI Case Study.

Offering premium products and cutting-edge designs since 1975, TUMI® has been a leader in the market for high-quality luggage and accessories for business, travel and lifestyle for more than 40 years.  Its 110 corporate-owned retail stores throughout the U.S. have been a further reflection of the brand’s creativity, innovation and integrity.

Supporting a long-standing corporate commitment to social awareness and environmental responsibility, in 2014 the company met its aesthetic and sustainability goals, by upgrading the lighting to LED in several of its flagship New York City locations to enhance the shopping experience for its legions of loyal and discerning customers.

Following its Rockefeller Center store’s complete remodel and reconfiguration with Solais LED technology in November 2014, the TUMI team is thrilled with the new look and feel of its high-traffic retail space. “Our new lighting has a lot more impact when you walk in,” Trunley confirmed. “It focuses on the product, not the lighting, allowing the merchandise to be the hero when you enter the store. Our foot-candle level has increased dramatically, and the light is much whiter and crisper than before – with no maintenance.” In addition, with the versatility of track lighting, the fixtures offer the appearance of recessed trough systems and really deliver the aesthetics we were looking for.
