Ha haaa, pardon the wordplay there, sometimes I just cannot help myself. I just got word from my pal Ramsey at .PSLAB Beirut that the firm has just completed another concept project! PSLAB is one of my top five favorite lighting design firms on the planet – they’re like my Chicago Blackhawks of the architectural lighting design world.
Press release below, then awesome imagery. Ramsey, tell everybody I said excellent work!
Al Dente Restaurant, Beirut- Lebanon.PSLAB BEIRUT was asked to develop a lighting concept for al dente restaurant in beirut–lebanon.The high ceiling restaurant is divided into 3 areas: the main central area containing the entrance and the main hall, a secondary hall and a bar area.We developed twig-like metallic fixtures to be mounted in clusters at the center axis connecting the entrance to the main hall.For the secondary hall and bar area, we developed superposed brass discs carrying the light source and fixed to the ceiling by means of a metallic rod. The linear layout of the fixtures and the continuity of the line of light defines the depth of the spaces.
