Personalisation, custom-made, bespoke products –
concepts now firmly embedded in the contemporary market, and fast becoming characteristic and fundamental features in the technical lighting world too. Increasingly people ask for things to be “custom made”, and, no less often, design constraints do not allow anything other than a one-off solution. The Soo Chic restaurant boasts two key examples: the room’s cylinder lights have a gold internal finish and a special ceiling fixing due to problems of depth. Similarly, the light strips were made from made-to-measure products and then attached with magnets, an interesting choice for a most unusual coating with great emotional significance: it is actually simulated wood recovered from the tsunami in Indonesia.
We think it’s the right light for a restaurant.
Each table has its own light and the table does not change its position, and, though decorative, and therefore not a fixture, obeys the laws of light.
Once again there was a challenge, this time the location and its atmospheric conditions: finding solutions suitable for winter temperatures down to -30°C was one of our successes.
