In the district of Eixample in Barcelona, Spain, Abitare Kids has one of the largest childcare and children's furniture stores in Europe. The store has more than 750 square meters dedicated to displaying 15,000 items from a hundred international companies specializing in babies and children up to 8 years old. The two-story large store has maintained its original spirit with stone walls, hydraulic floors, and iron beams. The large windows facing the street allow you to get an idea of everything that awaits inside.
The brand chose Spottune because of its quality, design, and simplicity. The Spottune Omni Track was the perfect solution due to the enhancement of the industrial aesthetic of its ceilings, which include lighting tracks to illuminate products and the store. We visited the store and talked to Mailin Del Castillo, who is an employee at Abitare Kids.
“I think the system is really cool! The sound is great, and I enjoy going to work because I know I won't be met with problems."
The omnidirectional sound of Spottune's speakers ensures 360-degree sound coverage, allowing just three speakers to cover approximately 250 m2 per floor! On both floors, a Spottune Stream has been installed, serving as an audio transmitter. Thanks to its 1.9 GHz wireless connection through the ABCD protocol, Audio Broadcasting Digital technology (not Wi-Fi), employees can work with peace of mind, as the music remains undisturbed.
Abitare Kids is also connected to the Spottune Cloud system, where you can manage and synchronize music at your location(s) in just a few clicks on your phone, computer, or tablet. Here Mailin adds:
"Sometimes we need to change the routine or the sound level, and with the Spottune Cloud system, I can easily do it myself. It's actually something that all employees can figure out even though not everyone is good with technology”
In conclusion, with its vast selection, timeless ambiance, and innovative integration of Spottune technology, the store offers a seamless experience for both employees and customers alike. As Mailin Del Castillo aptly puts it, the Spottune system not only enhances the atmosphere but also simplifies daily operations, ensuring a harmonious environment where everyone can thrive.
The total material used for this sound installation was the following:
6 x Spottune Omni Track Wireless Speaker, black
