Restaurant Lighting IKUZE, Gateshead


IKUZE is a new Japanese restaurant on the Upper Cube in the Metrocentre in Gateshead. The restaurant offers food based around the concept of washoku, which is a new and unique dining experience. IKUZE means ‘let’s go, are you ready’ and provides a stylish and modern dining experience in a open kitchen setting. The interior designers that worked on the project, Room 33, created a relaxed and open environment, utilising natural materials throughout. Warm tones were chosen to create a cosy atmosphere with a clean, minimalistic interior that we have come to associate with Japanese food. Low benches and refectory style fixed seating is available in the main dining area and is highlighted by the use of elegant Fort Knox pendant lighting supplied by Andy Thornton.


The Fort Knox pendants are a substantial 500mm in diameter and are manufactured in high‐precision polycarbonate. This quality specification allows for a true mirror finish in metallic gold which provides a truly vibrant and unique atmosphere, reflecting the complete restaurant environment. These pendants are extremely versatile as they can be used individually or in a cluster and can also be hung at different heights. They can be used to create many different settings and they complement the interior design within IKUZE beautifully.

Colbert, Sloane Square


Nestled in the heart of London’s Sloane Square is a beautiful cafe inspired by the great boulevard style all day cafe’s of Paris. Its interior has a classic, traditional feel mixed with beautiful features reminiscent of the 1930’s and offers customers relaxed informal dining. Being in one of London’s most exclusive areas the impressive building needed to appeal to a more affluent demographic. The interior design mirrors this and the lighting design accentuates the classic look and feel. Paul Nulty Lighting Design took on this project working closely with the interior designers and architects, creating a seamless blend between the interiors and lighting.


The Cafe has a convivial, warm and intimate environment. Part of the brief was to install a sustainable lighting system; a low energy lighting solution, which complied with Part –L energy legislation was chosen. The lights provided a warm tone, adding drama and ambiance to the cafe. In addition a lighting control system was fitted to allow for the mood of the lighting to be changed accordingly throughout the day.
