Scandic Kødbyen – hotel illuminated with tracklights

Scandic Kødbyen is a hotel with a room for variety. The hotel is designed to fit into the urban and artistic environment that characterizes Copenhagen's slaughterhouse area, or Kødbyen as it is named – and the lighting is no exception. Black tracklights lead guests into well-appointed livingrooms and loungeareas. Our Focus Track Mega luminaire creates flexible lighting solutions and fits well into the hotel's large and small public spaces.


Inside the hotel's large glassdoors are loungeareas, conference rooms, The Coffee Box café and the restaurant MØR – known for its gastronomic experiences. Find several areas where to sit down, whether for work or a for a meal. Small and large spaces are illuminated with black tracklights. The colours of the hotel's public area have a consistently dark base with modern elements of light wood and stone, even rust. Focus Track Mega is mounted as a pendant installation over marbled tables, leather chairs and sofa groups in the various open loungeareas, and distributes a pleasant general light. Honeycomb screens that stops lateral light in all directions have been used on several of the spotlights to minimise the risk of glare for the visiting guests.


Letting Focus Track Mega illuminate the hotel's public areas was not a difficult choice. Tracklights can create good general lighting, but also accent lighting by focusing the light on something specific to be emphasized in the room. A flexible lighting solution that can be adapted to the use of the room thus fit a hotel with a variety of different rooms. A DALI system also created a lighting control with great flexibility. The lighting can be programmed as needed without changing the physical installation, which is the advantage of DALI. This makes it easier for the user when preselected lighting settings (scenes) can be selected by, for example, a simple push of a button.

Focus Track is our series of spotlights for track mounting. The larger variants Mini, Maxi and Mega with a solid and smooth droplet design come with integrated mains dimmable driver or DALI driver. The luminaires are available in white or black in several sizes with alternatives lumenoutputs, beam angles and colour temperatures to illuminate everything from the small painting at home to the goods in a large store. The Focus Track series also includes Honeycombs, Caps and Barndoors accessories to change light pattern and reduce glare. At Hotel Scandic Kødbyen, a flexible lighting solution has been created by consistently using black Focus Track Mega with Honeycombs that enhance the character of the hotel and highlight details in a stylish way.
