Restaurant Lighting


The Ottolenghi chain is benefitting from the use of Megaman fixtures to create a brilliant light level at a comfortable temperature so that produce remains fresher for longer.


delicatessens The Ottolenghi chain, which specialises in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian food. The original lighting at the company’s four locations was achieved using 50W halogen light sources. As a result, heat emission was a problem in addition to high running costs. Electrical contractors PME Services Ltd were asked to survey the existing lighting and advise on a more eco-friendly lighting solution.


The Megaman AR111 LED, which was chosen as a replacement, offers a direct replacement for halogen


spotlights in terms of both colour


temperature and intensity without heat generation, and also provides up to 80% energy saving. With a large reflector and miniaturised burner, the AR111 LED provides remarkable performance levels with its narrow beam optic, with excellent optical control. With its anti-glare shield and glittering facetted mirror, it achieves pinpoint accuracy from a 45º beam angle and the lightweight heat sink ensures that track spots won't tilt. The AR111 LED is available in two options, 15W GU10 and 14W G53, as used at Ottolenghi, both offering a life of up to 50,000 hours. The latter can be used in conjunction with a dimmer switch - a unique driver is required for the G53 version working with DC1-10V dimmer.


The fitting of these replacement fixtures 22


has made a real difference to the energy consumption of the four locations, and has also made a significant difference to the heat generation. Since the installation at Ottolenghi, the energy savings achieved at all four locations has been calculated as a total reduction of 23,608 KWh of electricity per year. From delicatessen to decadence, the 40/40 Club, owned by rapper Jay-Z, is an eating experience like no other. The space has all the makings of your average all-American sports bar, but don’t be fooled by a witty baseball-themed menu, this place is something different entirely. With the aim of creating a stadium experience


for visitors, and after undergoing a 6 month, multi‐million dollar renovation, the new space boasts stadium seating with marble floors and plush lounge banquettes, five V.I.P. rooms, an illuminated multi-story bottle display tower, and a catwalk overlooking it all. With all this glamour, it was down to Focus Lighting to develop a lighting scheme to match. The team used light to bring out the richness of the materials and highlight specific architectural elements within the space. Upon entering the 40/40 Club, the visitors’ eye is drawn toward the 18‐foot‐tall Champagne tower at the centre of the main room using low profile LED light strips installed within the shelves. To maximize its impact, extensive mock-ups were carried out, resulting in a


design that incorporates the lights in front of and behind the bottles, with a background of mirrors covered with a metallic screen. All of these elements, combined with the reflectivity of the bottles, create a glittering centrepiece to the room. The resin bar top surrounding the Champagne tower is illuminated using two rows of lensed LED strips precisely placed at the back edge of the resin to produce a warm, even glow, punctuated by the sparkle of the cracked resin. Low level lighting integrated into architectural features such as the arches on the side walls and the banquette bases combine with decorative fixtures to recreate the warmth and comfort of a residence. The finished lighting scheme accentuates specific materials in the decadent space and helps to create the perfect atmosphere. Whether the project involves lighting a fast food outlet that requires a quick turnaround of customers, or a luxurious eatery requiring a more relaxed atmosphere, lighting is essential to creating the right environment.
