Context / environment
After the success we had have with the flagship store of Rive Gauche Saint Petersburg Galeria – The shop owner wanted to continue to equip all new shops with transparent LED screen for shop windows.
Street Co’s LED engineers and designers have been contacted again by
Claudine Leroch, official architecte for the biggest retail shop projects of the brand Rive gauche for consultation for one of the biggest shop of the retail network.
The client has shared CAD drawings of the floor plan. The main objective was to use the shop windows to advertise products and promotions sold inside.
Rive Gauche has insisted on adding futuristic and digital elements/touch to the front shop window. For the front windows shop the brief was simple and straightforward:
‘We need to add transparent LED screen displays to our shop windows to increase footfall’
This project was part of a global renovation of Rive gauche. This particular one was on Ulitsa Kraynego, 56, стр. 4, Pyatigorsk, Stavropol Krai, Russie, 357500
The client already knew where they wanted to install the transparent LED screen on the facade building on the ground floor
They also wanted to set themselves apart from what already existed on the market and especially to differentiate themselves from their main competitors.
After few brainstorming meetings, Street co proposed a few options to dress the shop windows space with digital transparent LED screens.
Solution : using a transparent led screen
Customer satisfaction is one of our key objectives, Our last transparent LED screen for the shop window used in ((Galeria Shopping mall in Saint Petersburg)) was a real success and the product was really appreciated by the shop managers.
We then decided to propose a similar product with custom sizes to the window of Pyatigorsk shop.
The window is a key part of the shop as every single shopper will see and pass by it to enter the shop.
To feature the main window shop right at the entrance of the shop, we have proposed to Rive Gauche architects and Claudine Leroch the options of using transparent and in-glass LED screens with a Pitch of 5mm.
This project has a 4 years free warranty under Street Co’s warranty program.

The screen runs off 2 electrical circuits to power the transparent LED window shop cabinet in order to avoid a complete blackout if the power were to be cut. Each line holds 4 sections of LED screen maximum consumption of 4KW. This diagram is for reference to know how the power is being connected. All cables are labelled and directly connected to the control room.

The main challenge was to ensure the screen was safely secured and well-integrated to the shop window. The programming is simple and straightforward.
Impact : to install Transparent led screen in their windows shop
The screen advertises products and promotions outside the shop but inside the mall which attract customers they might not have planned to come shop at Rive gauche Pyatigorsk.
The LED screen display also adds an innovative digital to the cosmetic brand.
