Luhta Sportswear Company is a Finnish family business founded in 1907. Company is one of the largest Nordic Sportswear Companies with over 1500 employees and a turnover some 246 million euros.
Luhta Sportswear Company (former L-Fashion Group Oy) bought the business activities of the Top Sport Chain in 2015. Top Sport sales sports- and free time products in its´18 shops around the country. The new owner wanted to continue the chain´s business in the same trading posts, but also start the new concept and brand development in the Top Sport Chain.
Because Fagerhult had worked successfully together with Luhta also before, the company proved to be a reliable partner to develop a new lighting concept to the Top Sport Chain. This reference is telling about the Top Sport Flagship, which lies in the city center of Helsinki.
General lighting in the Flagship was created with black bodied, discreet Notor LED 60 -luminaires. Continuous installations with L-couplings create all the way lit light lines to the ceiling. Stylish and highly efficient black Marathon G2 spotlights complete the lighting by highlighting the products in the shop. Three innovative Freedom circles decorate the relaxing areas. Other products used in the Flagship were round LTS PLL 22, Linear LED and Telescope Aqua.
Fagerhult created a special Top Sport -lighting solution over the cashier desks and inspirational product exhibitions. This new application was made with LTS Lichtkanal Special luminaires with an opal sheet with blue led-light above the Lichtkanal body. This new luminaire model became the symbol of the new lighting concept and the new brand of the Top Sport, where the blue color has its´ special and important meaning.
Top Sport Flagship wants to offer an active, energetic, inspiring and memorable atmosphere with modern product exhibitions and testing possibilities, not to mention the professional and service oriented Top Coach salespersons who will do their best to help the customers to choose right kind of products to fulfill their needs. Fresh, stylish and bluish lighting solution completes the big picture.
