In a spatial design filled with vintage sentiment, lighting plays a crucial role in reconstructing the precise atmosphere of the time and place, and we use exactly that to emphasize the nostalgic vintage atmosphere.
When entering the 1st floor entrance, the rolls of dim lights on the wall guild guests in, while generating a mysterious atmosphere. As the guests enters B1F, under the glimmering dim light, the mottled paint on the wall, the old red brick arch, and the coarse texture of the floor, all present the atmosphere of a medieval wine cellar. The warm light reflecting off the stone table of the bar counter, and the amber light that illuminates the displayed wine at the exhibition area; the dim light permeates all across the narrow walkway leading to the VIP tasting room, creating a mysterious aura that seems to emit out from every wooden door and curved ceiling.
The VIP tasting room behind the wooden door uses industrial wall lamp with amber-colored tungsten lightbulb to light the arched ceiling, and combines with the swaying candle light on the table, allowing the guests to be more relaxed as they enjoy the wine. The wine storage utilizes GOBO lights to create a theatrical effect, which uses different patterns to mark its different functionality, including linking it with smartphone location app to locate personal wine cabinet. The lighting in the wine cabinet only switches on with the app, so as to prevent the wine from long term light exposure, thus retain their qualities.
The distinctive bright and dim lighting of each area is done not only in consideration of our guest’s comfort and the preservation of the wine, but also intends to recreate the vintage atmosphere within the place. Incorporating technology for environmental control, and managing the various spaces such as reception area, bar counter, wine storage and VIP room with a system of temperament control. Using smart device and app, the manager can adjust the atmosphere of any area within the cellar. The lights narrate the nostalgia; technology brings new convenience; the place is a perfect incorporation of the old and the new.
