Lighting in hotels and restaurants plays a decisive role in whether guests feel comfortable, and whether they return. It is about much more than fulfilling basic needs: The key is to create as unforgettable an overall experience as possible. As a premium manufacturer of modern, high-quality lighting solutions, our goal is to best combine functionality and design. We offer lighting for restaurants, bars, and hotels that remains in the background and yet creates optimal lighting moods, or, where desired, can decoratively move into the foreground.
Hotel room lighting is primarily about creating cosiness through mood lighting. Guests should immediately feel at home and relax, regardless of whether they are on a holiday or a business trip. Hotel rooms are occupied mainly during the evening and night. Pleasant artificial lighting is therefore particularly important. Warm light colours reinforce the impression of cosiness and set the organism up for relaxation and sleep. Luminaires with a variable colour spectrum, such as LINEA Tunable White, can have an activating or calming effect by providing cool white light in the morning and warm white light in the evening – in harmony with the human circadian rhythm.
Lighting in hotel rooms and suites contributes visually to the hotel’s design concept, but still remains in the background. It should support the interior design without imposing itself and provide comfort. Among other models, SASSO 60 meets this demand for hotel room lighting with three optics and excellent glare minimisation. The MOVE IT system is an optimal solution for technologically equipped, modern rooms and flats.
Guests should feel comfortable and be able to intuitively navigate the reception area. The lobby’s lighting provides orientation, indicates circulation routes, and makes waiting areas appealing and relaxing. Architecturally, the reception is usually spacious. Different lighting zones ensure that the areas are perceived separately.
Choose clear, activating lighting so that the reception desk is immediately recognisable as the central point of contact. Finally, the hotel’s foyer is also a workplace. Sufficient brightness and glare-free luminaires ensure good conditions for VDU work and filling out forms. The different requirements are combined in a flexible lighting solution, e.g., in the slim MOVE IT 25 system. Spot luminaires such as JUST and decorative pendant luminaires such as TULA can be used in the multifunctional mounting tracks. The system offers the right luminaire inset for every lighting zone
Hotels often have their own conference and meeting rooms to host corporate events, meetings, or retreats. These rooms need flexible lighting systems that can accommodate a wide range of media formats while also meeting the requirements of informal small events.
The best solution is a smart lighting control system with various lighting programmes that can be selected as needed. Well-designed meeting room lighting in meeting rooms is both functional and promotes concentration to help people stay focused for several hours. This is achieved by cool light in the daylight spectrum, which activates the organism and reduces fatigue.
Fitness and wellness areas have become a standard feature of many hotels. Sensual activation and relaxation, switching-off from everyday life, are central wishes of hotel guests visiting the spa. Gym lighting, however, should convey cleanliness and hygiene. Dimmable luminaires are the right choice for quiet zones. Well-designed pool lighting can create visually spectacular effects. For example, the general brightness is reduced while the water surface acts as a light reflector for exciting light shows and special moments of relaxation.
Children’s area lighting is about creating an environment that is both safe and familiar, that meets different requirements, and conveys a sense of security. Luminaires such as MINO or VELA emit both direct and indirect light, creating a relaxing atmosphere in which children can lose themselves in their play. Warm, friendly light colours contribute to this experience. Luminaires for children's areas are based on a soft, rounded design language. As the classic colours for luminaire housings, such as white, black, or dark grey, often appear too harsh for children's areas, XCS Special Colours are available.
Representation through light does not begin inside a building. Appealing exterior lighting arouses curiosity and entices people to enter. It is also responsible for creating an ambience of safety and providing orientation for guests through clearly visible paths, entrances, and exits.
In front of hotels or restaurants, the exterior lighting creates a first impression. By providing a pleasantly warm light colour at night, the hotel grounds convey a sense of security. Outdoor luminaires with motion sensors are an energy-saving solution for places that are only occasionally accessed. Finally, outdoor luminaires need to be particularly robust and weatherproof. IP 54 protection class luminaires withstand rain and moisture as well as impacts, dust, and insects.
