SWITCH MADE, a world leader in providing efficient, innovative and stylish lighting solutions, is partnering in ambitious infrastructure projects in the UAE. The French brand had undertaken the value engineering for the new façade lighting, developing a custom solution for The Dubai Mall, to give it a youthful and modern visual identity. The retrofit lighting solutions by SWITCH MADE will enable the mall to achieve an annual decrease in energy consumption for façade lighting by 40-50%. The new lighting has also increased the lighting quality of the mall dramatically with greater uniformity, illuminance and colour rendering efficiency in addition to enhancing the visitor experience by improving the perception of space.

Jeremy Loisel, CEO of SWITCH MADE, said: “As a French company, we are committed to the vision of the government to enhance our international outreach. Building on the strong bilateral relations between France and the UAE, we see significant opportunity to partner in major infrastructure projects in the country. This is highlighted by the completion of the new energy-efficient façade lighting solution at Dubai Mall. We managed the project end-to-end, from design to value engineering, installation and support on-site, highlighting our integrated approach to project delivery.”

The brand provided the full package of lighting solutions including LED modules, projectors and cove linear lights to meet the design goal of creating peaceful, aesthetic ambient lighting.
