The right lighting


Maintaining a welcome atmosphere was vital. To replace the existing 50w halogen bulbs in the lamps, MASTER LED 10w bulbs were chosen. These lights create the same brightness as halogen bulbs, but the energy consumption is 80% lower.
 

The chandelier bulbs were replaced with Novallure lights. These innovative LED fixtures, designed especially for decorative lighting, provide the same warm glow as traditional bulbs. However, they use less energy, and emit virtually no heat, helping to keep costs low.
 

The new lamps have maintained the atmosphere that the restaurant so carefully created. They have also helped to reach sustainability goals thanks to the energy-efficient performance of LED. The life cycle of the new lights is around 30,000 hours, compared to 2,000 for halogen. This reduces replacement costs considerably. In addition, the low heat emissions of LED mean that air conditioning is used less, delivering further savings.

 

The new lighting can be changed instantly to a number of pre-programmed light settings. This guarantees that the restaurant can create the correct ambience for any occasion.
