Hospitality – indoor and outdoor lighting for hotels, restaurants, bars, wellness facilities, swimming pools, sports facilities and stadiums
Whether accentuated or uniform, open or intimate, cosily warm or dynamically cool – the lighting brings the restaurant, hotel or wellness concept to life. A combination of space-structuring wallwashing and light accents guides visitors reliably through the rooms and connects the room zones themselves. Soft-start technology, dimming values lower than 1% and colour mixing in the luminaire give ERCO LED luminaires the complete range of qualities needed for hotel and restaurant lighting.
Tips for the lighting design of restaurant and hotel lighting
Inviting outdoor lighting – a warm welcome
The first and crucial impression of hotels and restaurants is formed before entering, when the guest sees the hotel from afar as they approach the building. Façade lighting that harmonises with the hotel architecture and scenic light for the driveway are a pleasant and welcoming gesture inviting the guest to enter the hotel.
Restaurant lighting – enjoy your meal
Good food, drinks, scintillating conversation and a pleasant ambience - these are the crucial factors in the running and design of a restaurant. Factors which also define its lighting requirements: good light on the table for the meals and drinks, visibility of the people at the table, and adequate lighting in the room.
Lobby lighting – a prestigious welcome for guests
Similar to an overture, the lobby introduces the theme of the hotel and communicates to the guests the atmosphere provided for their stay. Suitably distributed light allows important areas – such as the reception – to be highlighted for orientation and quiet seating areas defined as private zones with low lighting levels.
Lighting in wellness areas – supporting relaxation
In the wellness area of a hotel, guests looking to relax first and foremost expect atmospheric lighting. They want to immerse themselves in a room that allows them to leave behind the stresses of the day and provides soothing light. Diffuse light creates a soft mood. Individual accents from direction luminaires add interesting contrasts.
LED technology – saving energy
Excellent luminous efficacy and long life of the LED enable efficient lighting solutions. Its brilliant light and good colour rendition also make it an ideal choice for the dynamic lighting of rooms and materials.
Light control – creating atmosphere with scenography
Scenographic light in gastronomy uses a coherent dramatisation to provide the customer with an experience that engages all their senses. Light, space and time combine with culinary delights to result in an all-embracing concept. A flexibly controlled lighting control system ensures that scenographic lighting effects are easy to create.
