V4 Wood Flooring is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of high-quality, responsibly sourced hard wood flooring. Founded in 2002, V4 Wood Flooring is a family-run business with its headquarters in Woking, Surrey.
This year has seen the opening of the company’s dedicated design centre, V4 World. Adjacent to the head office, the space offers visitors the opportunity to see the products in situ, with the design of the showroom bringing to life the creative possibilities for the contemporary floor and wall products.
The showroom is also part of V4 Wood Flooring’s expansion plans to break into the specification market, including appealing to architects. The showroom is therefore a visual feat, designed to the highest of standards with every aspect carefully considered to showcase the products in the best possible way.
Having visited Delta Light’s own showroom in London, the V4 team were instantly impressed with the design and breadth of the lighting solutions. Delta Light was subsequently chosen as the lighting manufacturer for the showroom project.
The V4 team were heavily involved in the lighting scheme, taking the lead on the design with support and assurance from Delta Light. As part of this, the V4 team knew that the fittings supplied needed to ensure the lighting reflected true colour for the flooring samples to accurately show the tones and colour of each individual option. Delta Light completely understood the importance of this, so ensured everything specified and fitted, delivered these results.
As part of the brief, V4 Wood Flooring wanted complete flexibility over the lighting, so they could experiment with colour when showing samples. The lighting has been integrated using CTRL Delta, which offers full Bluetooth control via the Cassmbi App.
Within the main showroom space, there are a number of pull out sample drawers to showcase the different flooring options. These are illuminated using a combination of 3000k and 4000k colour temperate Boxy fittings, which are on tracks so they can be altered to show the flooring samples in different lighting conditions.
There are also a number of tables in the showroom which are used to demonstrate samples, which are lit by Supernova 125 TW fittings. The tuneable white fittings have been selected, which are controlled via CTRL Delta, so the member of the V4 team showing the samples can personally adjust the colour of the light.
In the reception area, Spy C fittings can be seen hanging over the desk, offering task lighting with style, and a warm welcome. Elsewhere in the space, to create a dramatic effect and capture attention in the atrium area, Delta Light’s design-led Superloop takes pride of place.
In the breakout and seating areas of the showroom, Delta Light Superdome has been installed. For the more general lighting requirements of the showroom, Drummer fittings on tracks and Spy C surface mounted fittings have been used throughout the circulation areas, while Heli Screen fittings have been specified for lower level lighting in the corridor.
Chris Vincent, Director at V4, said:
“Our partnership with Delta Light began when we underwent a light tour at the Delta Light showroom. We were overwhelmed by the unrivalled quality of the products, the stunning designs and the wealth of choice.
“We knew instantly that Delta Light was the right lighting supplier for us. We even got design ideas from the showroom, which we have replicated in our own centre, such as the circular light fittings in our windows which are striking.
“Working with Delta Light was a seamless process as the team responded so well to our lighting design. They made great suggestions about fittings and light sources, as well as invaluable recommendations such as CTRL Delta.
“Even the electricians installing the showroom were impressed with the quality of the solutions and the ease of fitting. Delta Light really are experts in their field.”
James Platt, Project Manager at Delta Light added:
“The V4 design centre, V4 World, is a stunning space. Delta Light were therefore delighted to be a part of the end result, integrating our market-leading light solutions into the finished design which will no doubt impress existing and potential clients of V4.
“The team at V4 has such vision and creative ideas for the showroom, it was great to work alongside them and make recommendations on the Delta Light solutions which would make that vision a reality.”
