SEGMÜLLER is a retail company in the furniture sector and operates several locations in Germany. Westiform acted as general contractor for the construction of a new SEGMÜLLER furniture store in Cologne-Pulheim.
The most striking element of the new building is the gigantic red illuminated glass entrance portal with the SEGMÜLLER name in white illuminated lettering. Standing 25 metres tall and 42 metres long, the portal can be easily seen by customers from a great distance off. The glass panels are made from double laminated safety glass and are printed red concentrically using a silkscreen process.
One of the more challenging aspects of the project was mounting the superimposed SEGMÜLLER illuminated lettering measuring 31 metres long and 4 metres high on the glass façade of the glass portal. Thanks to an innovative solution from Westiform, the lettering was attached to the façade using a steel structure with special brackets in such a way that uniform illumination was achieved. The illuminated sign itself consists of a single body with a front covered in red stretched fabric and illuminated with red high-performance LEDs.
Westiform also supplied two further SEGMÜLLER illuminated signs measuring 31 metres in length and 4 metres in height for the two adjoining façades of the portal.
The entire project, from planning to production and installation, was successfully completed in under 12 months.
