Xicato lights up Pilates Studio BalanSense


The Challenge
The owners of pilates studio BalanSense hired design firm FUNKT Architects to come up with a unique design for their one-of-a-kind studio in Sofia, Bulgaria. The designer created custom lighting fixtures that fit in perfectly with the studio’s overall design. The form and style of the lighting fixtures are unique and represent the modern and retro feel of the studio environment.

The Solution
The designer worked with Lumina to supply the best light for the custom lighting fixtures. Lumina Ltd, a distributor of Xicato solutions in Bulgaria, chose Xicato’s Flexible Linear (XFL) Static White in 3000K for a variety of reasons. Xicato’s linear lighting solution went above and beyond the project requirements.

“Xicato’s linear lighting is one of the best in the industry. When FUNKT Architects came to us with their design requirements for a high illumination solution with extraordinary light quality, we immediately knew that Xicato’s XFL was the perfect choice,” said Teodor Monev, Principal at Lumina Ltd. “The flexibility of the lighting on a 24V platform were added benefits that helped to complete the unique design of the fixtures, and with complete ease.”
Lumina Ltd worked with Helvar in the United Kingdom to provide the lighting controls system to integrate seamlessly with Xicato’s XFL so that the lighting can be controlled depending on the desired visitor experience and mood.

The Result
The Pilates studio BalanSense has become very popular in Sofia, specifically for its unique and modern design.
“We are thrilled with the design of our pilates studio,” said the owner of BalanSense. “The teams at FUNKT Architects, Lumina Ltd, Helvar and Xicato worked well together to bring our vision to life. We constantly receive compliments on the unique lighting design in our studio.”
